About Zaytuna College
Zaytuna College is America’s first accredited Muslim liberal arts college that offers undergraduate and graduate degrees. A central goal of the College is to reintegrate the once vital and influential voice of Muslim thought and erudition back into the ongoing conversation of great ideas, which is informed largely by shifting Western values, and to do so within the context of our new, globalized society and in the manner articulated by the College’s mission statement: “to educate and prepare morally committed professionals, intellectuals, and spiritual leaders, who are grounded in the Islamic scholarly tradition and conversant with the cultural currents and critical ideas shaping modern society.
Charged with dramatically increasing both the quality and size of the Zaytuna College prospect pool, the Office of Development plays a key role in the overall growth of private philanthropy for this unique institution. The College is currently seeking a regional director for the Northeast and Southern regions.
The regional directors will be based in their respective regions and deployed throughout their assigned region to engage existing donors and new prospects to solicit funds for the College. The position will require extensive travel to originate prospect/donor activity and to coordinate all Advancement work in the assigned regions. The regional director will need to work collegially with other Advancement team members. They will carry a portfolio of approximately 65 qualified prospects and are expected to make a minimum of 15 major gift solicitations ($10,000+) each fiscal year.
The regional director is expected to be a full and active member of the regional team and of the broader college development team, participating in strategy and planning, and contributing ideas and counsel, particularly as related to their assigned regions.
The position reports to the senior director of Development, will share a designated staff person supporting him or her, and may supervise an associate director (if one is available in his or her region).
