Carlsbad, California

Executive Director of Development, Pacific Ridge School

The Organization

Since Pacific Ridge School opened its doors in 2007, the school has quickly become recognized as a leader in independent school education in San Diego and beyond. Its Harkness-based instruction model, global travel program for the entire student-body, and deeply embedded service learning has distinguished it from other schools in the area.

A coeducational institution, Pacific Ridge has 626 students in grades seven through twelve from Carlsbad, CA, and neighboring communities in North County San Diego. In 2022, Pacific Ridge will open its doors to an inaugural sixth grade class.

For a position to begin in the late summer of 2021, Pacific Ridge seeks an outgoing, strategically minded, and inspiring professional to serve as its Executive Director of Development. This is an extraordinary opportunity for an experienced and entrepreneurial fundraising professional to build upon the School’s growing culture of philanthropy.

Application Deadline: July 2, 2021

PACIFIC RIDGE SCHOOL IN BRIEF

Mission

Pacific Ridge’s mission is to foster academic excellence, ethical responsibility, and global engagement, and prepare students for college and a purposeful life. Its aims – preparation for college and a purposeful life – are realized by students who come to understand that learning is a joyful, life-long pursuit, and that the world contains many kinds of classrooms.

Diversity Statement

Pacific Ridge values the unique perspectives and experiences within our community and believe that each elevates the learning experience for all. Over a third of Pacific Ridge students identify as people of color as defined by the National Association of Independent schools, and diversity is represented on our campus in many other ways. Pacific Ridge provides a supportive environment in which students can explore their own understanding of gender, ability, race, religion, ethnicity and sexual orientation, as well as notions of equity and justice.

Accreditation, Memberships, and Affiliations

  • National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS)
  • California Association of Independent Schools (CAIS)

Enrollment and Financial Aid

Pacific Ridge’s 626 students hail from 25 communities across northern San Diego County. Tuition for the 2020-2021 school year is $35,100, and nearly a third of students receive financial aid. Pacific Ridge recently developed the Opportunity Grant program, extending the School’s commitment to varied perspectives by providing significant tuition assistance to families in the lowest of income ranges. The Opportunity Grant program targets first generation, college-bound students with high financial need, and covers nearly all tuition and incidental costs.

Faculty and Staff

Pacific Ridge’s low student-teacher ratio (7:1) enables the formation of the close ties between students and teachers that many alumni name as a highlight of the experience at the school. Seventy percent of Pacific Ridge’s 92 faculty members hold advanced degrees, and there are ample professional development funds available for continuing education. The faculty have a wide range of backgrounds, united beyond their credentials by their broad worldview and dedication to the growth and well-being of the students.

ELEMENTS OF THE SCHOOL PROGRAM

Academic Excellence

Pacific Ridge incorporates real-world challenges, innovative approaches, and a growth mindset in every aspect of the School so that students’ accomplishments extend well beyond what`s expected or required. The students of Pacific Ridge have access to the talented faculty, advanced coursework, and state-of-the-art facilities needed to achieve whatever academic goals they set for themselves. Behind it all, Pacific Ridge strives to impart a genuine love of learning to its students, propelling them further than they imagined.

Ethnic Responsibility

With awareness must come action. Pacific Ridge endeavors to help students understand the complex challenges facing our society, the systems that create them, and the imperative to participate in solutions. Pacific Ridge teaches ethical principles to guide students in how they impact their communities and the world. Through a service-learning program that is embedded into each student’s weekly schedule, students learn to serve communities near and far. Pacific Ridge instills in its students a responsibility to act, a desire to do good, and the belief that they can make a difference.

Global Engagement

Pacific Ridge students engage in a robust, globally focused curriculum and a program of yearly travel to help students think outside of themselves, develop empathy, and prepare to contribute to the world around them. Nearly 90% of Pacific Ridge students participate in the Global Travel program each year, immersing themselves in communities and cultures, whether near or far. Through this approach, students grow together in the context of a larger community and create awareness of perspectives, experiences, and ways of life beyond their own.

Harkness Learning

At Pacific Ridge, it all starts in the classroom with small groups and lively discussions around the Harkness table. The School’s approach to education involves empowering students with the confidence to engage with challenging material and appreciate diverse perspectives. Each student is seen, heard, and actively included, which helps them to develop the critical thinking and open-mindedness to undertake anything that comes their way.

Growth through Experience

Pacific Ridge believes that strength that comes out of challenge and personal development is a result of getting uncomfortable, taking risks, and getting outside of what we know. Pacific Ridge creates opportunities for students to face the unknown through unfamiliar experiences, shared vulnerability, and exposure to the world beyond them.

ABOUT THE SCHOOL

History

Pacific Ridge School opened its doors in 2007 with the intention of enriching the educational opportunities in North County San Diego, offering the community an educational mission that focused on mind and heart, combined academic excellence with ethics, and linked civic responsibility to global awareness. In the fall of 2002, after years of talking and listening to others lament the limited options for excellent college preparatory secondary education in Coastal North County San Diego, two pioneering families, the Bechtler-Levins and the Merrifields, began thinking seriously about the prospect for an exemplary middle and high school in the area. Shortly thereafter, they were joined by other families, and formally established the founding Board of Trustees for the Pacific Ridge School. In the summer of 2005, Dr. Eileen Mullady, assumed the position of inaugural head of school. Dr. Mullady hired a core staff and partnered with veteran teachers from across the country to design a curriculum that brought to life the ideals of the mission and vision of the Board of Trustees. In the spring of 2011, the Board of Trustees unanimously approved a co-head leadership model, promoting Dr. Bob Ogle to Co-Head of School, alongside Dr. Mullady. When Dr. Mullady retired in 2013, Dr. Ogle was appointed Head of School.

The commitment of the founding families and early board members was instrumental to the immediate and enduring success of Pacific Ridge School.

Campus

Pacific Ridge’s 14.5 hillside acre campus is located in the North County community of Carlsbad, California. The spacious surrounding open space contributes to the school’s warm and nurturing environment. The campus is comprised of 78,307 square feet of classrooms, science laboratories, arts studios, administrative and gathering spaces. In February 2021, Pacific Ridge opened an Innovation Center and Library: a flexible space for students to come together, collaborate, experiment, and explore interests amidst maker spacers, a library and research center, technology labs, creative studios, and more.

The Academic Program

At Pacific Ridge, each student is exposed to experiences that inspire their curiosity to keep learning and the determination to achieve the extraordinary.

Through a combination of interactive coursework, educational travel, service projects, and student-led activities, students are empowered to experiment with new ideas and interests, pursue their passions, and develop their voice. An encouraging community behind them connects support with motivation, giving students the opportunity to test and refine their skills through collaboration and dialogue. Whether it’s navigating the bustling streets of an international city or developing a service project for their home community, Pacific Ridge students are able to lead their path to learning, confident in the resources and inspiration they are offered along the way.

Pacific Ridge currently offers a range of Advanced Placement courses, including Biology, Calculus AB/BC, Chemistry, English Language and Composition, Environmental Science, Music Theory, Photography, Physics, Psychology, and US History.

Arts

Creativity can be found everywhere at Pacific Ridge. Students immerse themselves in the arts and benefit from the expertise of a talented and dedicated faculty. Beautiful, state-of-the-art facilities house artistic endeavors of all kinds and offer a hub for creativity and innovation on campus.

All seventh and eighth graders participate in a year-long Middle School Arts Program, gaining exposure to disciplines they may not have experienced before. Art forms explored include dance, graphic design and photography, theater, studio art, and music. Student performances are an important part of the middle school arts curriculum and take place throughout the year.

Upper School students have the option of taking year-long classes in the arts. More than 30 classes and multiple levels of instruction are offered, allowing students to explore disciplines in depth and achieve high levels of mastery.

Athletics

The success of Pacific Ridges athletic program is grounded in the core values of commitment, community, integrity, respect, accountability, and passion. Centered around a belief that interscholastic athletic competition provides educational value and prepares students for a successful and purposeful life, the athletics program’s mission is to assist student- athletes in developing important physical, mental and emotional skills.

The Upper School fields teams in Baseball, Basketball, Beach Volleyball, Club Ice Hockey (boys), Coed Cross Country, Coed Golf, Coed Surf Club, Coed Track & Field, Coed Water Polo, Lacrosse, Tennis, Soccer, Volleyball. The Middle School fields teams in Coed Cross Country, Flag Football, Basketball, Soccer, Lacrosse, Coed Tennis and Volleyball.

Pacific Ridge School’s 35,265 square foot, state-of-the art athletic facility is one of the largest high school athletic centers in San Diego.  The modern, mixed-use building accommodates not only athletic contests and sports training, but also school assemblies and informal meetings. Pacific Ridge is also home to a regulation-size artificial turf soccer and lacrosse field for hosting both interscholastic competitions and physical education classes. The field is flanked on one side by a 150 foot, 3-lane sprint practice track and elevated spectator seating.

Clubs

Pacific Ridge offers students access to some 47 clubs and student organizations. From robotics to yoga, students have a chance to form bonds with peers and adults who share their areas of interest and take on leadership roles in an appropriate setting. Those especially eager to play an active role in the life of the school can run for positions in Student Council.

THE OPPORTUNITY

The new Executive Director of Development will be joining a relatively young school that has been remarkably successful in fundraising- raising more than $100M in its first 14 years.

Program Director, Chinook Fund

The Organization

Chinook Fund seeds community-led, systemic change by mobilizing resources for and trusting in grassroots social justice organizations across Colorado. Since our founding in 1987, Chinook Fund has awarded over $3.6 million in grants to more than 380 grassroots groups in Colorado.

Chinook Fund is both a fundraising and grantmaking organization. Funds for grants are primarily raised through the Giving Project, an innovative model for funding social change and fostering leadership. The Giving Project brings together a diverse group of people of all income levels who are passionate about social change and committed to building their skills in fundraising, grantmaking, and community building. It gives participants the opportunity to have transformational conversations about race and class, to experience the impact of collective giving, and the tensions and joys of grantmaking. We use a “donor organizing” approach to fundraising, rooted in the belief that everyone has the ability to give and the ability to ask for money.

Donor organizing is a key strategy of the Giving Project and includes organizing people around their giving through values-based conversations, political education, and supporting donors to see their giving as a vehicle for systemic change. By developing the fundraising leadership of Giving Project members, Chinook Fund reaches many donors new to social justice. Chinook Fund hosts two Giving Projects a year.

This Fall, we will run an alumni grantmaking committee to provide time for onboarding new staff. Since 2016, we have completed 8 Giving Projects and one alumni Grantmaking Committee supporting 144 members to collectively raise $826,620 from 2,494 donors.

Chief Development Officer, NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. (LDF)

The Organization

Since 1940, the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. (LDF) has been the vanguard in the battle for civil rights and racial justice in the United States. LDF was founded by legendary civil rights lawyer Thurgood Marshall (who went on to serve as the first African American U.S. Supreme Court Justice) and became a wholly separate organization from the NAACP in 1957. LDF brought together an intrepid team of attorneys with a bold vision for a truly just and equal democracy. They shaped the foundations of the civil rights all Americans enjoy today.

More than 80 years later, LDF lawyers continue to battle against voting laws that suppress African American votes, racially discriminatory barriers to employment and housing, ongoing segregation in our nation’s schools, and a criminal justice system that too harshly punishes people of color in federal and state courts. LDF policy advocates bring their expertise to Capitol Hill, while LDF organizers are on the ground in communities across the country supporting local efforts to transform policing and education.

LDF is renowned for its impact litigation that drives critical advances in civil rights – most notably its landmark Supreme Court case Brown v. Board Education, which overturned the “separate but equal” doctrine of segregation and led to the integration of the nation’s public schools.

LDF’s work focuses on the four interconnected areas of political participation, criminal justice reform, education equity, and economic justice. Over the years, LDF victories have secured equal access to the ballot and to public accommodations for African Americans, eradicated arbitrary barriers to employment opportunity, and eroded racial bias within the criminal justice system. Outside the courtroom, LDF advocates have ensured that major civil rights laws including the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Fair Housing Act were passed, reauthorized, and implemented.

LDF recently completed its 80th Anniversary Campaign, raising $80 million to support its strategic priorities. Since 2013, LDF has steadily grown in resources and staff size, and expanded the range of its donor engagement. Supported by three major foundations in 2013, the organization now receives substantial support from scores of foundations. Major individual donor support has also expanded exponentially. During the past 8 years LDF has also grown its board and staff. As of 2021, the staff has tripled in size, and LDF plans to open a third office – a southern regional office – in Atlanta later this year.

In 2020, the response by donors to the need for urgent racial justice work resulted in unprecedented support for LDF. As a result, LDF is financially positioned and empowered to make even bolder moves to meet the challenges of the moment. LDF is now engaging in organizational development and strategic planning that will culminate in a rebranding process.

Amid this compelling backdrop, LDF seeks a mission-driven leader for the critical role of Chief Development Officer (CDO). The CDO directs and leads LDF’s efforts to advance philanthropy and donor understanding of and engagement with the programs and priorities of the organization, working closely with the President and Director-Counsel, senior staff, and the Board of Directors. The CDO is responsible for conceptualizing, organizing, and implementing a comprehensive and strategic fundraising program that will sustain and fully leverage the influx of support LDF has received. Reporting to the President and Director-Counsel and serving as a key member of the senior management team, the CDO oversees a current team of approximately 24 individuals across the areas of Individual Giving, Institutional Giving, and Development Services. The CDO will be empowered to optimize the organizational design/functional alignment of the Development department in consultation with the President and Director-Counsel, on the understanding that additional staff capacity will be necessary to achieve long-term goals.

Position Overview

This position will be remote until September 2021. Beginning October 2021, any candidate selected should be prepared to report to work in the office location assigned to this position.

The ideal candidate will have the following professional skills, competencies, and personal characteristics:

  • Passion for the mission of the NAACP Legal Defense & Educational Fund, Inc. and comfortable discussing topics related to race and justice. Ability to authentically engage and inspire others as a senior representative of the organization.
  • Ten or more years of proven leadership experience in planning and implementing a successful, comprehensive fundraising operation for a nonprofit organization, including major gifts, annual fund, planned giving, corporate and foundation giving, e-philanthropy, and direct mail, as well as leadership in a major fundraising campaign (planning, implementation, and successful conclusion); an established track record of increasing philanthropic revenue (with an emphasis on major giving).
  • A demonstrated commitment to issues of racial justice and equality.
  • Knowledge of and fundamental adherence to the principles, ethics, and best practices of modern fundraising, including the integration of various giving programs to diversify the funding base and cultivate greater donor commitments.
  • Deep understanding of philanthropic networks that are relevant to LDF, as well as trends in national and New York City philanthropy and their implications for LDF fundraising.
  • Experience working in or leading a diverse staff. Ability to lead, recruit, evaluate, and develop a diverse team of development professionals and contribute to the ongoing fostering of a high-functioning, results-oriented, multi-racial/multi-ethnic workforce. Track record of maintaining best practices, clear goals, and shared accountability, as well as conceptualizing and executing development office growth.
  • Demonstrated success in developing the case for support and strategic, innovative fundraising plans, and executing those plans to grow fundraising and exceed goals. Demonstrated experience cultivating, training, building relationships with, and working in collaboration with executives, senior staff, and volunteer leaders on development-related activities, providing them with quality support and intelligence and increasing their comfort with and success in fundraising.

Founded in 1940, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund (RBF) advances social change that contributes to a more just, sustainable, and peaceful world. The RBF’s grantmaking is organized around three themes: Democratic Practice, Peacebuilding, and Sustainable Development. Though the Fund pursues its three program interests in a variety of geographic contexts, it has identified several specific locations on which to concentrate cross-programmatic attention. The Fund refers to these as “RBF pivotal places”: subnational areas, nation-states, or cross-border regions that have special importance with regard to the Fund’s substantive concerns and whose future will have disproportionate significance for the future of a surrounding region, an ecosystem, or the world. The Fund currently works in two pivotal places, China and the Western Balkans, and is launching a third, Central America, during 2021. The Charles E. Culpeper Arts & Culture program, focused on New York, nurtures a vibrant and inclusive arts community in the Fund’s home city.

Through its grantmaking, the Fund supports efforts to expand knowledge, clarify values and critical choices, nurture creative expression, and shape public policy. The Fund’s programs are intended to develop leaders, strengthen institutions, engage citizens, build community, and foster partnerships that include government, business, and civil society. Respect for cultural diversity and ecological integrity pervades the Fund’s activities.

About The Pocantico Center

Once home to the Rockefeller family, The Pocantico Center’s verdant campus in the scenic hills of the Hudson Valley has been host to some of the most influential leaders, thinkers, and creative minds of the last century. Today, The Pocantico Center is the community-facing extension of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund’s philanthropic mission to advance social change that contributes to a more just, sustainable, and peaceful world. Through a robust slate of programming—including conferences for nonprofit and policy leaders, artist residencies, tours, performances, and educational programs for the community—Pocantico continues to bring together people from near and far to learn, share, and imagine a better future.
