Founded in 1813, Colby College is the 12th oldest liberal arts college in the nation and is one of America’s most selective colleges. Colby re-imagines the liberal arts experience – providing access to a global experience, research, and internships for all students regardless of their background. Colby’s history is extraordinary, but there has never been a more dynamic and exciting time for the College. Colby is in a period of fast-paced progress — defined by ambitious institutional priorities to reimagine student opportunity and post-graduate success.
Colby College, a prestigious liberal arts college consistently ranked among the top colleges and universities in the nation, is seeking a highly motivated Director of Family Philanthropy to lead a team and engage families of students in supporting the institution. This is a tremendous opportunity to be a driving force behind the College’s philanthropic success both now and in the future.
Under the visionary leadership of President David Greene, the Director of Family Philanthropy will join a dedicated frontline fundraising team at a time of unprecedented growth and innovation at the College. Colby is currently 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. Critical to the success of the campaign and beyond is exponential growth in foundation support.
