Oregon State University Foundation seeks an ambitious and motivated development professional to serve as Senior Director of Development II. Oregon State University is an internationally recognized public research university located in Corvallis, one of the safest, smartest, greenest small cities in the nation. Situated 90 miles south of Portland, OSU is the state’s Land Grant university and is one of only two universities in the U.S. to also have Sea Grant, Space Grant and Sun Grant designations. As Oregon’s leading public research university, with $383.9 million in research funding in 2021, more than all other public universities in Oregon combined, Oregon State’s impact reaches across the state and beyond. The College of Engineering (COE) has awarded more than 35,000 degrees resulting in sustained contributions to society and science.    The OSU Foundation partners with the university to engage the OSU community, inspire investment, and steward resources to enhance the university’s excellence and impact. Raising approximately $140 million annually, the Foundation has for the last four years achieved its best years of fundraising, and in FY 2021 set a record with donors giving over $177 million. For more information about the Foundation, please visit

Reporting to the Vice President for Constituent Programs & Campaign Director, the Senior Director of Development is the chief front-line fundraiser responsible for creating a vision and managing a comprehensive fundraising program for COE. Working in close partnership with the Dean, the Senior Director of Development will develop clearly defined strategic fundraising priorities for the College and articulate a compelling case for support.  At least seven to ten years of major gift development in higher education and a proven track record of successful major gift fundraising at the $1 million level and above is preferred.  Although this person does not need direct engineering fundraising experience, an interest in engineering or STEM-related activities is a plus. Education and experience equivalencies will be considered.  The salary range is $150,000 - $170,000 annually.  Relocation assistance, if needed, is negotiable and a comprehensive benefits package will be provided.
