 Landmark College is a unique, accredited college for bright neurodivergent students with learning differences (LD; including dyslexia, ADHD, autism, and executive function challenges).  Whether at the Putney Vermont campus, through LC Online, or at our west coast Success Center, Landmark provides an intentionally designed, resource-rich academic and student life model yet is traditional in most ways.   We seek an experienced fundraising professional with a proven track record to join our Institutional Advancement team as Major Gifts Director.  The Director is responsible for developing and implementing strategies for cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship of donors with a focus on higher-level gifts for campaign and annual giving. 

 A generous sign-on bonus is available, and a flex schedule is also possible.  Additionally, Landmark College offers competitive wages and an excellent benefits package, including medical, dental and vision plans; a strong vacation and time off package (four weeks’ vacation; 15 health-related days; typically 16 paid holidays; etc.); a TIAA retirement plan that includes 6% College contribution; tuition reimbursement; and more. Our location in beautiful southeastern Vermont provides the setting for an engaged and inclusive college community with the safety of a small, rural campus. The College is minutes away from ski resorts and other outdoor activities, and within driving distance to cities such as Boston and New York City. A position with Landmark College is more than just a job - it is an opportunity to work in a like-minded, dedicated community, and make a difference in the lives of often overlooked students who have the capabilities to change our world for the better. 

The Director must possess an in-depth knowledge of development issues and opportunities, a working understanding of fundraising systems and data-associated elements, and other aspects of fund-raising processes, chief among them strong relationship-related instincts and qualities.  Travel on behalf of the College, either alone or with the President, is a requirement.  A bachelor's degree is required.

Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, résumé, and full contact information for three references (references will not be checked until finalist stage) to the Director of Human Resources: To find out more please visit us:   SIGN ON BONUS - $3000
