One of Charlottesville’s oldest independent schools, St. Anne’s-Belfield School has an established reputation as a leader in student-centered education. Its commitment to supporting the whole learner means teachers, coaches, and staff are continually improving their knowledge and applying new skills in and out of the classroom. The School provides students with a multi-dimensional education experience that encourages them to grow into compassionate, engaged citizens.
St. Anne’s-Belfield seeks a visionary and strategic Chief Development Officer (CDO) to strengthen and expand its fundraising efforts in support of new strategic priorities and preparation for a multimillion-dollar comprehensive campaign. Reporting to the Head of the School and in close partnership with the senior leadership team and the Board of Trustees, the CDO will develop a strategic plan for philanthropy to maximize philanthropic potential and engage and inspire alumni, families, and donors to invest in the School and deepen their commitment to the community. The Chief Development Officer will assist with building and managing the Head of the School’s portfolio, as well as recruiting and staffing the Board of Trustees and its Development Committee.
The ideal candidate will have a minimum of 10 years of development and campaign management experience. Prior independent school fundraising experience is preferred.
