The Princeton University Art Museum seeks an Art Museum Gifts Officer (MGO) who will be a key, frontline fundraiser whose primary purpose is to expand financial support for the Museum by growing, deepening, and diversifying both endowing and expendable gifts and annual donated revenue to help achieve the Museum's ambitious goals.
Reporting to the Associate Director for Museum Development (ADMD), the MGO is responsible for developing and executing strategies to identify, research, cultivate, and solicit qualified prospects for major and planned gifts in collaboration and cooperation with the Museum’s Director and the ADMD, soliciting their own portfolio of major gift prospects as well as supporting the ADMD and Director in managing their respective major donor portfolios.
The Museum is preparing for dramatic growth, including a new facility being designed by Sir David Adjaye, which will provide dramatically enhanced spaces for the display of the collections, temporary exhibitions, collections study, education, and public amenities. Fundraising and planning are well underway, with construction anticipated to occur over the next three years; beyond the costs of the capital project, an aggressive plan to secure new endowments, multi-year expendable funds, and annual support must now be developed and implemented.
