The Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with the United States Naval Academy Foundation in the search for an Associate Director of Annual Giving Programs.
The Associate Director of Annual Giving Programs will join the Naval Academy Foundation at a particularly exciting time. The Foundation recently launched its $400 million comprehensive campaign, the largest in its history, one designed to have a transformative impact on one of the nation’s premier leadership development institutions and on the young men and women who will become the next generation of Navy and Marine Corps officers.
The Associate Director will be responsible for the organization, implementation, and successful execution of the Foundation's Annual Giving programs–a vital and strategic component of the Foundation's campaign. Providing strategic and creative vision for acquiring, retaining, and renewing gifts, the Associate Director will have the opportunity to develop, test, and employ innovative strategies for acquiring new and retaining lapsed donors including the use of wealth screening and target analytics to better inform initiatives that will further advance and engage new donors and broaden the base of support. Initiatives targeting young alumni (graduates of the last fifteen years), to include mobile-friendly online giving and social media, represent an area of needed emphasis, adding multiple channels of giving opportunities to existing, more traditional fundraising strategies such as direct mail, phone, and email.
The Associate Director of Annual Giving Programs will become part of a collaborative team of advancement professionals who share a deep commitment to the future of the Academy and the naval service, and are dedicated to creative approaches to annual giving programs that are fully integrated with leadership annual giving and major gift programs.
