California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB) is a preeminent center of intellectual and cultural activity in Inland Southern California. Set at the foothills of the beautiful San Bernardino Mountains, the university serves more than 20,000 students each year and graduates about 4,000 students annually. CSUSB reflects the dynamic diversity of the region and has the most diverse student population of any university in the Inland Empire, and it has the second highest African American and Hispanic enrollments of all public universities in California. Seventy percent of those who graduate are the first in their families to do so.
CSUSB is made up of five administrative divisions. The Division of University Advancement promotes Cal State San Bernardino's educational mission through private philanthropic support, strategic communications, and alumni relations. University Development creates fundraising initiatives, events, and activities that stimulate the involvement and interest of alumni, friends, parents, corporations, and foundations by developing relationships that foster and stimulate giving to the university.
The Director of Annual Giving (DAG) leads the strategic planning, implementation, and continuation of multi-channel annual giving campaigns that increase contributions and participation from alumni/ae, parents, and other friends of the University. The DAG personally solicits Leadership Annual Giving prospects for contributions of $1,000 or more. Under the direct leadership of the Senior Director of Development, the DAG works with campus partners to design and execute a dynamic annual giving program informed by cutting-edge predictive data analytics and best practices of both the CSU community and the annual giving community-at-large.
This position requires a strong commitment to philanthropy, effective communication and writing skills, prospect research and organizational skills, and knowledge of annual giving best practices, trends, and technology. Proficiency in all related tax and legal considerations is required, as well.
