The purpose of Development and Institute Relations (DIR) is to foster a thriving and engaged community of support for Caltech. By connecting the people who share and support Caltech's mission and values, we will ensure the Institute receives the necessary resources to achieve Caltech's aspirations and sustain its excellence in teaching, research, and scholarship in perpetuity. DIR team members embrace and uphold the values of diversity, integrity, respect, focus, and pride. Reporting to the Director of Development for Academic Divisions and Regions, the Development Officer at Caltech is responsible for effectively representing the California Institute of Technology in key regions and in academic divisions to secure individual contributions of approximately $100K and above. Working closely with a dynamic Development and Institute Relations (DIR) team, the Development Officer is expected to expand the donor base, create effective engagement pipelines for new and existing major gift donors, and develop a greater Caltech presence. Additionally, the Development Officer will be responsible to raise money for assigned Division-based or Institute fundraising priorities. This work will require the Development Office to closely coordinate with other members of the ADR team. We seek individuals having a deep interest in science, who are highly self-motivated, forward-thinking, committed to teamwork as well as individual achievement. The Development Officer will develop and maintain a portfolio of 100-150 major donor prospects, and will carry out strategic cultivation, solicitation and stewardship of these donors in conjunction with faculty and senior development leadership.
