The Director of Development (DOD) will work closely with senior administration and with the Fielding School Board of Advisors to build and sustain a growing portfolio of corporate, foundation and major gift donors to support key priorities of the Fielding School of Public Health, including student support, research to impact programs, local to global initiatives and other priorities identified by the Dean. The DOD will independently solicit major gifts, write case statements and proposals, develop strategic long-term and annual fundraising plans, evaluate progress to goals and maintain active awareness of individuals and foundations in the prospect pool at various stages of identification, cultivation and solicitation. The DOD will provide advice and strategy with regard to campaign and development issues and participate in the design and implementation of long-term goals and objectives to achieve maximum impact in priority areas and meet both annual and long-term fundraising goals for the Fielding School of Public Health. The DOD must have excellent verbal communication and writing skills. The DOD will meet regularly with faculty and staff in priority areas and gain knowledge of research interests and areas of expertise and will establish and maintain cooperative working relationships with appropriate individuals and offices in the School and across UCLA.
