Senior Director of Corporate and Foundation Relations Chautauqua Institution, Chautauqua, New York

Chautauqua Institution, in southwestern New York State, is a not-for-profit global convener of dialogue and debate on the most significant issues of the day through engagement across four programmatic and thematic pillars — arts, education, religion and recreation. Families, friends, couples, and singles gather each summer at Chautauqua to relax and renew in a quintessential lakeside community setting that has inspired minds and hearts, solutions and resolutions, for nearly 150 years. Some 100,000 people visit Chautauqua, some of whom are in residence the entire summer and year-round. Still more engage through an expanding online catalogue of recorded events and live-streamed programs. The full impact of Chautauqua is found in the mix of experiences between and among the pillars.

The Opportunity

The Senior Director of Corporate and Foundation Relations (SDC&FR) will play a key role in expanding the reach of Chautauqua Institution outside the gates of the grounds and beyond the summer assembly season. In collaboration with Chautauqua leadership, the SDC&FR will be responsible for establishing new, and strengthening existing, relationships with the corporate and foundation community.

Envisioning a bold future that will expand Chautauqua’s impact in the world beyond the summer assembly season and the physical grounds, the leadership team is looking to broaden and strengthen its corporate and foundation initiatives and goals. It is an opportune time for an enterprising fundraising leader to bring new ideas and energy to this dynamic and important organization.
