Founded in 1813, Colby College is a prestigious liberal arts college consistently ranked among the top colleges and universities in the nation. Serving only undergraduates, Colby offers academic programs rooted in the deep exploration of ideas and enriched by partnerships with world-class faculty scholars. Colby reimagines the liberal arts experience — providing access to a global experience, research, and internships for all students regardless of their background. Colby is in the public phase of its most ambitious campaign, Dare Northward. With this $750 million goal, of which more than $650 million has been raised, the campaign will further position Colby as a national leader in liberal arts education.
Colby College is seeking a highly innovative and strategic Director of Athletics Fundraising to lead all aspects of major, and leadership gift cultivation for Colby Athletics. This is a tremendous opportunity to essentially build the athletics program from the ground up, elevating the level of community support, and serving as the ambassador of athletics to key stakeholders. The Director will be the driving force behind the College’s philanthropic success for athletics both now and in the future. Under the visionary leadership of President David Greene, the Director will join a dedicated frontline fundraising team at a time of unprecedented growth and innovation at the College.
The ideal candidate will have a deep appreciation for and understanding of collegiate athletics, the liberal arts college experience, and a strong personal commitment to Colby’s core values. Colby’s history is extraordinary, but there has never been a more dynamic and exciting time to become part of the College.
