Chief Advancement Officer

Culver Academies - Culver, IN
Culver Academies seeks a Chief Advancement Officer to provide innovative and strategic leadership of a comprehensive advancement program that amplifies and elevates Culver’s culture of philanthropy. The Chief Advancement Officer will recruit, lead, nurture, and manage a team of talented fundraising and advancement professionals toward the achievement of ambitious fundraising goals. As an experienced leader of large and diverse teams, the Chief Advancement Officer will empower and motivate staff through inspiring communication, coaching, and honest and constructive feedback with an unwavering commitment to the mission of Culver Academies.

Culver Academies is a values-based, mission-driven, vision-inspired institution that offers a co-educational, residential experience beyond that of the typical boarding school for more than 800 students in grades nine through 12. Located on the north shore of Lake Maxinkuckee, Culver Academies encompasses 1,800 acres of green hills and pristine woodlands. The Collegiate Gothic architecture that defines the campus includes world-class educational and athletic facilities that evoke an Ivy League university rather than a high school. Comprised of three entities—Culver Military Academy, Culver Girls Academy, and Culver Summer Schools and Camps—Culver Academies educates its students for leadership and responsible citizenship in society by developing and nurturing the whole individual, mind, spirit, and body, through integrated programs that emphasize the cultivation of character.

"If you believe in your power to shape young leaders in the making, as Chief Advancement Officer, you will be a leader in supporting those breakthroughs. Many of the same alumni who credit Culver with changing their lives want to give back so that new generations of students can experience similar opportunities—a virtuous philanthropic circle that is also as old as Culver Academies. I look forward to working alongside our next Chief Advancement Officer as a member of Culver’s leadership team—and as a close partner in our effort to ensure that more and more graduates will share their “It started at Culver” stories for generations to come." — Dr. Douglas Bird, Head of Schools
