The Director of Alumni Fund Leadership Giving helps those alumni with the financial capacity to do more to maximize their annual impact. As the Director of Alumni Fund Leadership Giving, you’ll build and strengthen systems to support peer-to-peer asks, cultivation, and stewardship of donors contributing $2,500-$250,000 to Williams while also working with a small group of alumni leadership prospects.

The Director of Alumni Fund Leadership Giving is responsible for all aspects of the leadership giving program, including volunteer training, cultivation and stewardship events, and coordination of solicitations across the volunteer, Alumni Fund, and major giving teams by working in close partnership with members of the development leadership team.
