The Cleveland Museum of Art was founded in 1913 “for the benefit of all the people forever.” It strives to help the broadest possible audience understand and engage with the world’s great art while honoring the highest aesthetic, intellectual, and professional standards. The Museum is one of the world’s most distinguished comprehensive art museums and one of northeastern Ohio’s principal civic and cultural institutions. It is also the last of the United States’ top art museums to offer free admission every day.
The Cleveland Museum of Art seeks a Senior Director of Major and Planned Gifts to expand and manage a strong major and planned giving program to build for growth. Reporting to the Deputy Director and Chief Philanthropy Officer, the Senior Director will serve as the top strategist for major and planned gift programs growth and serve as a leading fundraiser with a personal portfolio of six- and seven-figure donors and prospects.
The Senior Director will join the Museum during the early planning phase of a proposed campaign that will focus on endowment and targeted opportunities for current-use gifts designed to amplify the Museum’s artistic excellence, extend its reach, and ensure meaningful experiences for all audiences.
