For more than 130 years, Clark University has thrived at the nexus of world-class teaching, boundary-pushing discovery, and creative invention. Clark was the first all-graduate institution in the United States. Today, Clark University’s mission is to educate undergraduate and graduate students to be imaginative and contributing citizens of the world, and to advance the frontiers of knowledge and understanding through rigorous scholarship and creative effort.
Under the new leadership of President David Fithian, Clark University is embarking on its next chapter, and Advancement will be critical to the institution’s continued success. Major gifts are a vital component of the Advancement division, and the Major Gifts Officer will contribute to the pipeline of University support at the highest levels. The incoming Major Gifts Officer will be a strong communicator with both internal and external constituencies and have a track record of successfully closing gifts above $50,000. A self-starter and collaborative team player, the Major Gifts Officer will work well across University Advancement to leverage the resources and systems in place to maximize significant major gifts opportunities with the University’s alumni and other potential donors.
