Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with The Nightingale-Bamford School in the search for a Director of Institutional Advancement.

Reporting to the Head of School, the Director of Institutional Advancement will serve as the chief fundraiser for The Nightingale-Bamford School and will be responsible for establishing and implementing strategic fundraising goals for the advancement office that are in alignment with Nightingale's mission and strategic plan, in collaboration with the Board of Trustees, the Advancement Committee, and the Head of School. The Director will be responsible for the oversight and growth of the school’s annual fund, major and leadership giving, alumni relations and outreach, and capital campaign, and will lead, manage, and inspire a positive culture of fundraising with donor constituents, trustees, and Nightingale’s internal community.

Founded by two bold, visionary educators in 1920, The Nightingale-Bamford School’s mission is to inspire girls to go beyond barriers. Tied to this mission is a broader vision of students who are joyful learners who have the intellectual depth and courage to be critical thinkers, compassionate citizens, and agents of their own lives. Nightingale educates girls’ minds and hearts and, in so doing, infuses their lives with meaningful relationships, teaching them to value difference as a means of growth, and empowering them to question the status quo with confidence, empathy, resilience, and reason.

Nightingale enters its second century in full embrace of the philosophy established by its founders. Led by a fully-engaged and student-focused faculty and administration, Nightingale graduates will be ready for whatever the world presents to them. From the moment each girl enters the blue doors, they are acknowledged, understood, and valued. They are encouraged by Nightingale’s inclusive community to advocate for themself, have empathy for others, and take intellectual risks. Nightingale aspires for no student to attend Nightingale anonymously.

To give students opportunities to embrace and celebrate the diversity of cultures, languages, and identities in the community and the world, and become engaged global citizens, Nightingale emboldened its modern language instruction, expanded its international travel program, and created opportunities for its students to participate in exchanges around the world. Recognizing there are areas where girls need to be empowered, Nightingale integrated STEM and STEAM concepts throughout its curriculum from K-XII. It clarified its vision and strategy around athletics and physical education to focus on the health and wellness of the entire child, body, and mind.

The success and strength of Nightingale’s educational experience depend on the collective voices of its diverse community. Nightingale seeks to foster an environment that is diverse, equitable, and inclusionary, and where all community members are recognized and valued. It is committed to increasing diversity in the schoolhouse, including among the student body and the faculty and staff and on the Board of Trustees. Nightingale's goal is to value relationship-building as the pathway to appreciating diversity and building inclusion.

Generations of Nightingale alumnae have led lives of meaning, a testament to the power of its founders’ vision. Ensuring that the same opportunities exist for future generations of students is of primary importance. Thus, Nightingale is committed to maintaining wise stewardship of its financial resources, planning now for a sustainable future, including fostering a philanthropy culture that supports Nightingale’s current program and its vision for the future.

A bachelor's degree is required for this position as is at least five years of experience in a leadership position directing fundraising efforts for philanthropic or nonprofit mission directed organizations. All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and résumé. Cover letters should be responsive to the mission of The Nightingale-Bamford School as well as the responsibilities and qualifications presented in the prospectus.

The salary for this position is $250,000 annually. The Nightingale-Bamford School offers a comprehensive package of benefits.
