Founded on the belief that color and good design play an important role in the quality of our daily lives, for the past 25 years, Publicolor has used a design-based program to aggressively address educational and socio-economic equity for New York City public school students.
Partnering with the lowest performing schools and students in the most underserved communities of New York City, Publicolor seeks out those students who are at the highest risk of not completing school, providing an eventual pathway to break out of the cycle of poverty. Working with students from ages 12 to 24, Publicolor’s unique applied learning model uses design thinking as a vehicle to academically engage and inspire low-performing students in struggling middle and high schools, empowering them to achieve success in school, college, career, and life.
Publicolor is currently seeking a dynamic development professional to serve as Chief Development Officer and expand and enhance its individual giving program. This role is ideal for an individual who is energized by a highly collaborative, direct service environment and by Publicolor’s work to keep students in school by using the transformative power of color and design through its unique project-based learning approach.
With deep knowledge of the philanthropic landscape in New York, the Director of Development will reach out to the larger New York philanthropic community to build support for Publicolor, ensuring that the strategic vision for program growth over the next 25 years can be achieved.
