The College is seeking a highly motivated museum development officer at an exciting and defining moment in Colby’s history. This is a pivotal moment that requires a profound understanding of the arts and education as public goods. This key position offers a unique opportunity to be part of a leading—and growing--academic museum, and to significantly contribute to an ambitious and transformational campaign, at a time of tremendous opportunity and growth in the arts at Colby, including its museum.
Reporting to the director of museum development, the museum development officer will be responsible for engaging and broadening the Colby Museum of Art’s philanthropic pipeline through solicitation of annual and leadership gifts at the $5,000 through $50,000 level, executing yearly engagement events, and providing critical research, communications, stewardship, solicitation and reporting assistance. The museum development officer will serve as a staff member both within the Colby College Museum of Art and the Division of College Advancement. A highly visible representative of both the College and the Museum, the museum development officer has a deep appreciation for the liberal arts college experience, academic art museums, and a strong personal commitment to Colby’s core values. We encourage inquiries from candidates who will contribute to the diversity of our College, including its cultural and ethnic diversity.
