This is an extraordinary time in the museum’s history, as The Dayton Art Institute prepares for its Centennial in 2019. This is an amazing opportunity to work with a collaborative and forward-thinking team building institutional strength through philanthropic means.
Reporting to the Director and CEO, and leading a team of six, the Development Director will work closely with the Board of Trustees and Senior Leadership Team to lead and provide strategic vision for all aspects of the museum’s fundraising activities and constituent relationships including annual memberships (General, Jefferson Patterson Society, Corporate Jefferson Patterson Society, and Carnell Society), planned giving, annual fund, grants and sponsorship of programs and exhibitions while promoting the museum’s visibility, as well as providing centralized gift processing and donor relations services that are in constant alignment with broader organizational objectives. The Development Director will design and implement both short- and long-term engagement strategies to maximize relationships with existing and new donors with the capacity to make major gifts. The Development Director will participate with the Director and CEO in The DAI’s Centennial Campaign, currently in its silent phase, as appropriate with solicitations.
