Principal and Major Gifts Officer (x4)

Cranbrook Educational Community
Bloomfield Hills, Michigan

The Cranbrook Educational Community has been called “the most enchanted and enchanting setting in America.” Each year, more than 300,000 visitors and students explore Cranbrook’s 319-acre campus, and they leave inspired by the breadth and depth of experiences accessible to them.

One of the world’s leading centers of art, design, science, and education, Cranbrook comprises a graduate Academy of Art; a contemporary Art Museum; a historic House and Gardens; Michigan’s natural history museum; a Center for Collections and Research; and a pre-K through 12 private, independent college preparatory school.

Today, Cranbrook, as envisioned by its founders, remains an expression of a dream fulfilled—a community that encourages intellectual and creative growth amid the art and architecture of its inspiring campus.

The Opportunity

In anticipation of its upcoming comprehensive campaign, Cranbrook seeks to expand its team with the addition of four Principal and Major Gifts Officers (PMGOs). The PMGOs will be responsible for soliciting private philanthropic contributions through major and principal gifts from individuals and family foundations toward institutional and campaign priorities.

Reporting to the Director of Individual and Planned Giving, each PMGO will manage a portfolio of approximately 150 donors and prospects to deepen their engagement with and giving to Cranbrook while strengthening the donor pipeline in advance of its next major philanthropic initiative.

The Cranbrook community gains strength from its alignment of artistic, cultural, intellectual, and spiritual ideals. This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to Cranbrook’s unique combination of creative activities and help shape the future of its growing advancement program.
