The Princeton University Art Museum seeks a dynamic and engaging Individual and Corporate Giving Manager who will be responsible for the entirety of the Museum's annual giving program – membership, lead annual gifts, and corporate sponsorships.
A flexible, highly organized, creative, and enthusiastic collaborator who is passionate about the arts, the Individual and Corporate Giving Manager will re-conceive the annual giving program to take full advantage of the extraordinary opportunity offered by the opening of the new Museum in 2025. Strategic growth of annual giving is essential to creating a pipeline that will help to sustain and grow the Museum’s expanded physical and programmatic footprint in the new Museum.
The successful candidate will be an excellent communicator with strong verbal and writing skills who excels both at creating a dynamic individual giving program and as a frontline fundraiser. You will provide strategic planning for an integrated annual giving program with a concentration on aligning resources to maximize revenue and personally solicit upper-tier memberships, lead annual gifts, and individual and corporate sponsorships, including but not limited to sponsors for the Gala and Museum for All Ball.
Reporting to the Senior Associate Director for Museum Development (Sr. AD-MD), you will work closely with colleagues in the Museum's development office, as well as with finance and marketing, to ensure annual giving activity falls within budgetary frameworks to achieve expected goals and outcomes.
About the Museum:
With a collecting history that extends back to 1755, the Princeton University Art Museum is one of the leading university art museums in the country, with collections that have grown to include more than 115,000 works of art ranging from ancient to contemporary art and spanning the globe. Committed to advancing Princeton’s teaching and research missions, the Art Museum also serves as a gateway to the University for visitors worldwide. As the Museum prepares for a dramatically reconceived new building scheduled to open in early 2025, the Art Museum presents six exhibitions in its two downtown venues (Art on Hulfish and Art@Bainbridge) and is touring three collections exhibitions nationally and internationally. When the new building opens, the Art Museum will initiate its new exhibitions program with nine annual exhibitions onsite and on tour.
