College leadership and board members and through personal management of a small
portfolio of high net worth individual donors. Also critical is the Vice
President’s capacity to recruit, retain, and mentor a high performance team of development
officers and volunteers, as well as to ensure that other College leaders are
given the tools, support, and training they need to expand the College’s reach
into the major gift pool and help build the pipeline of support. The campaign
is the catalyst the College needs to mobilize all available resources in
building a sustainable major and principal gift program that will persist long
after the campaign has successfully concluded.
3. Engage constituents
Simmons’ alumni giving rate is lower than its peer and
aspirant schools, reflecting somewhat the relatively underdeveloped area of the
college’s alumni base, limited investment in creative alumni programming prior
to current College leadership, and rapid enrollment growth in the last two
decades. Alumni loyalty and passion, annual fund and athletics fund-raising
progress, and post-graduate success indicate there is great potential to engage
alumni more effectively in a broad spectrum of activities that will support the
College’s strategic goals. The College has begun implementing a more integrated
approach to advancement in the last five years. The Vice President will work
with alumni volunteers and staff to continue implementing a creative and
contemporary approach to alumni engagement and to increase participation.
4. Support the College’s volunteer leadership
Simmons’ Board of Trustees and its volunteer groups are
among the College’s greatest assets. Trustee engagement in the life of the
College and in advancement has increased significantly under the current
President’s leadership and represents the best practices of high performing
boards. Board members are committed to supporting the College’s strategic plan,
serve in strategic leadership committee roles, participate actively in fund
raising and recruitment of new board members, and are appropriately interested
in and supportive of the campaign. The Vice President bears significant responsibility,
along with the President and Cabinet, for cultivating and supporting board
engagement and for ensuring there is a healthy roster of future candidates for
board membership at all times. With the relatively new school structure, there
are new opportunities to develop additional means for volunteer engagement.
