Located along the expansive and picturesque Sippican Harbor on Buzzards Bay in Massachusetts, Tabor Academy serves as the premier coeducation, college preparatory boarding, and day school for students grades 9-12. The “School by the Sea” embodies its unique maritime heritage. It provides a wide breadth of academic offerings for students to explore their interests, understand their strengths, and develop their critical thinking and communication skills. In anticipation of Tabor’s 150th anniversary, the school is developing a new strategic vision that will chart a path forward into the next phase of the school’s history.
The school seeks a Director of Leadership and Legacy Giving at this pivotal moment to develop a comprehensive and high-level individual giving program. The Director will provide strategic leadership to build a major and planned giving program and develop annual operating plans for achieving fundraising goals. Relying on best-practice approaches, they will manage three frontline officers and institute a moves management system to track fundraising activity. This individual must also be adept at developing donor engagement strategies that align with Tabor’s priorities to yield increased levels of sustainable philanthropic support.
This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced development professional to be the architect of a leadership and legacy giving program that reflects Tabor’s aspirations for the next 150 years. Ideal candidates will be highly strategic, creative, collaborative, and authentic. Individuals with a passion for Tabor Academy’s mission and a proven record of securing major and principal gifts are encouraged to apply.
