Landmark College is a unique, accredited college for bright neurodivergent students with learning differences (LD; including dyslexia, ADHD, autism, and executive function challenges). Whether at the Putney Vermont campus, through LC Online, or at our west coast Success Center, we provide an intentionally designed, resource-rich academic and student life model yet are traditional in most ways.

The director is responsible for developing and implementing strategies for cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship of donors with a focus on higher-level gifts for campaign and annual giving. Ability to connect with others and communicate our mission, value, as well as complex brand and operations is key.

The director must possess an in-depth knowledge of development issues and opportunities, a working understanding of fundraising systems and data-associated elements, and other aspects of fundraising processes, chief among them strong relationship-related instincts and qualities. Frequent travel on behalf of the College, either alone or with the College’s president, is a requirement. A bachelor’s degree is required.
