Associate Director of Major Gifts Stewardship

Website University of Vermont Foundation

The Associate Director of Major Gifts Stewardship will help maximize major and principal gift donations to the University of Vermont (UVM) through a body of work that supports the four pillars of donor stewardship (acknowledgment, stewardship, recognition, and engagement) with the intention of advancing contributors’ positions along the donor commitment continuum and increasing their levels of philanthropic participation over time.  Particular focus will be placed on supporting the ongoing fundraising success of major gift officers.

The mission of the UVM Foundation is to secure and manage private support for the benefit of the University of Vermont. Our Vision is to foster relationships with alumni and donors that maximize their personal and philanthropic investment in the University, toward the realization of the University’s aspiration to remain among the nation’s premier small research institutions. Every staff member on our team contributes to our ability to meet that mission.

The UVM Foundation is committed to diversity and building an inclusive environment for people of all backgrounds and ages. We especially encourage members of traditionally underrepresented communities to apply, including women, people of color, LGBTQ people, and people with disabilities.

A limited hybrid arrangement may be possible, but frequent in-person presence will be required; fully remote candidates will not be considered. This position will require occasional work outside of standard business days and hours.
