The IU School of Medicine Office (IUSM) is seeking a talented individual to join the Office of Gift Development as an Assistant Director of Donor Relations. In this role you will manage a comprehensive program of donor relations services to cultivate, solicit and steward major gift donors. If you have an understanding of the donor continuum, an appreciation for the motivations behind philanthropic giving and the ability to integrate donor relations into the entire development effort, then this is the ideal position for you.
The Office of Gift Development is a highly collaborative environment, and in this role you will have the opportunity to work with others through every phase of the fund-raising cycle. You will work closely with and support the cultivation and solicitation efforts of the Dean, major gift officers, volunteers, and others by strategically planning, creating, and implementing high-level, donor-centered events. Assist major gift officers in identifying top prospective donors as guests for cultivation events and activities, coordinate the critical process of informing gift officers when major gifts are received and preparing gift agreements, and oversee the gift acknowledgement process including the supervision of the Stewardship Coordinator. You will also serve as a primary source for gift officers for designing and coordinating personalized, individual stewardship recognition activities to enhance relations between IUSM and its donors.
The successful candidate must possess excellent writing skills to prepare gift agreements and acknowledgements, as well as stewardship reports, endowment reports and research updates for individual donors and groups of donors to demonstrate the impact of their gifts. This position requires superb interpersonal skills and the ability to develop relationships with people of all backgrounds and experiences. While the individual must be a self-starter and be able to work independently, he or she must also be highly collaborative, flexible and work as a member of the office team. Should have development experience and strong organizational skills; ability to juggle multiple projects; and computer literacy in Microsoft software.
Bachelor's Degree from an accredited institution, plus at least 2 years of related experience. Two years of relevant experience may be substituted for every one year of education.
