Nestled amid the hustle and bustle of the UCLA campus, the Fowler Museum is dedicated to finding beauty and meaning through the art of the peoples, cultures, and religions of the world.

Philanthropy also shapes culture by enabling such collections and programmatic efforts to continue.  As the Director of Development (DoD) for the Fowler Museum, you will have the opportunity to work closely with the Museum Director and will be responsible for coordinating and leading all activity related to philanthropic support, including exhibition funding and UCLA Centennial Campaign-related giving opportunities for major and legacy gifts that will support the future growth of the Museum and its endowment.

In 2016, the Fowler Museum received a multi-year matching challenge gift of up to $14 million from long-standing supporters to help sustain and grow the Museum. The DoD will be responsible for creating and activating short- and long-term plans, and robust strategies for individual, corporate and foundation fundraising.  With particular emphasis on the expansion of the individual major gift effort aimed at achieving these objectives, the DoD will also reinvigorate a focused effort on Museum membership and all donor engagement strategies.
