Regina Dominican High School, a college preparatory school sponsored by the Adrian Dominican Sisters, provides excellence in Catholic education to young women of all races, cultures and faiths. With its long-standing tradition in female-centered education, Regina Dominican High School fosters values of peace, truth, justice and reverence for life.

The Director of Institutional Advancement will focus on developing a broad vision for Institutional Advancement, restructuring the Institutional Advancement office as needed, and building a significant major gift program. In the course of normal work the Director will be expected to engage donors in cultivation and solicitation occurring outside the office, working with the President and the Board in heightening relationships with key donors.

The School seeks a visionary and strategic professional with management experience and demonstrated success in budget preparation, planning and resource management, and staff development and supervision. A successful candidate will demonstrate a successful track record in soliciting major gifts from individuals, corporations and foundations, or have related professional experiences in similar industries.
