    About Center for Supportive Schools (CSS)

    The Center for Supportive Schools (CSS, formerly Princeton Center for Leadership Training) advances the efforts of schools across the country to develop all students into leaders who help make their schools safer, more supportive, engaging, and inspiring. CSS is driven by the vision that one day, all students will thrive in schools that graduate them prepared for the rigors of college and lives filled with meaningful work, active citizenship, and personal fulfillment. Our work directly addresses disengagement from school, a root cause of students dropping out of school and other high-risk behaviors for students in urban, suburban, rural, economically disadvantaged, or more affluent communities.

    Since 1979, CSS has partnered with 500 schools and our impact can be seen in the experiences of 425,000 students. CSS partners with schools to help overcome disengagement by engaging all members of the school community in the relationships and meaningful dialogue necessary to effect substantial and sustainable change in all students’ school experiences. We accomplish this through a thoughtful and collaborative planning, teambuilding, and training process with school leadership and other stakeholders; an intensive train-the-trainer strategy; user-friendly, rigorous, and relevant curricula; on-site technical assistance; fidelity monitoring; and program evaluation. CSS offers a wide variety of solutions, such as:

    Peer Group Connection (PGC): an evidence-based, school-based program that supports and eases students’ successful transitions into middle and high school by tapping into the power of older students to create a nurturing environment for incoming students.

    Teen Prevention Education Program (Teen PEP):an evidence-based, school-based program that utilizes peer-to-peer education to increase responsible decision-making among students around issues of sexual health.

    Achievement Mentoring (AM): a school-based prevention and intervention program, developed by Dr. Brenna Bry, that pairs adult school staff with students in one-to-one mentoring relationships proven to reduce problem behaviors, improve academics, and reduce school dropout among at-risk students.

    Campaign Connect/Community Schools:a comprehensive, data-driven and relationship-based approach to engaging the school community in coordinated initiatives designed to improve student outcomes.

    Customized solutions:CSS also creates customized solutions in response to specific needs of schools. We have designed custom solutions for over 150 public and private schools throughout the United States.

    CSS is a fast-paced, collegial, and team-oriented environment where each staff member plays a critical role in changing life trajectories for students and transforming school cultures.

    Job Summary

    CLI is seeking candidates for the role of Vice President of Philanthropy (Vice President).

    Responsibilities

    Vice President of PhilanthropyCatholic Leadership InstituteWayne, Pennsylvania

    Founded in 1990, Catholic Leadership Institute (CLI) provides bishops, priests, deacons and lay persons in the Roman Catholic Church with world-class, pastoral leadership formation and consulting services that strengthen their confidence and competence in ministry, enabling them to articulate a vision for their local church, to call forth the gifts of those they lead, and to create more vibrant faith communities rooted in Jesus Christ.

    CLI is playing a critical role on behalf of the Roman Catholic Church of today and tomorrow. CLI is helping the Church to navigate generational shifts, to respond to and prepare for ever-mounting demographic challenges among ordained religious and the laity, to establish a near-term vision for the Church in the U.S., and to define an overall roadmap for the Church's future. The organization is accompanying Catholic parishes, dioceses, and their leaders – from the seminarian to the seasoned bishop to lay leaders – on their journeys amid the complexities of the modern world, supporting them in meeting corresponding challenges and opportunities with the benefit of world-class training, fresh perspectives, and intentionality. CLI and its partners are indeed helping to build a future of hope for Catholic generations to come, one where the Church is not only sustaining but thriving with vibrant communities rooted in Jesus Christ.

    CLI has already strengthened the Church through its work with tens of thousands of Church leaders and is poised for even greater impact as the nonprofit apostolate currently enjoys the best financial and overall organizational standing in its history. Propelled by entrepreneurial, visionary administrative leadership and the strategic, active engagement of multiple boards, CLI realized its most successful fundraising to date during the past two years. Yet, to meet the future needs of the Church, CLI must continue to enhance its fundraising profile, building on the over 500 lifetime donors to the organization. CLI's senior stakeholders will be engaging in visioning and strategic planning during summer 2018 to further shape organizational priorities and corresponding fundraising goals.

    Amid this favorable context of forward-thinking leadership and organizational stability, CLI is seeking candidates for the role of Vice President of Philanthropy (Vice President). Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, the Vice President serves as chief development officer and is responsible for working with the Board of Directors, Mission Implementation Team, National Advisory Board, Episcopal Advisory Board, and other volunteer ambassadors to discern, develop, and execute a vision for philanthropy at CLI that will grow donors' hearts and provide the philanthropic investments required to support world-class leadership formation for the Roman Catholic community. The Vice President manages a team of five, with a projected Major Gift Officer opening in FY 2018. S/he will also closely collaborate with CLI Founder Tim Flanagan, who has historically driven the majority of CLI's major donor relationships, as an extension of the Philanthropy team. The Vice President serves on the CLI Leadership Team and is expected to influence the overall direction and culture of the organization.

    The Vice President will be a central figure in the ongoing success and vibrancy of CLI, enabling it to vigorously pursue its mission while taking the organization to its next level of philanthropic achievement by coalescing strategic priorities with a robust development program. S/he will construct development strategies and execute plans that will markedly increase individual (including annual, major, planned, and blended gifts), foundation, and other philanthropic support.

    Qualifications

    Required qualifications and experience: demonstrated commitment to the respective missions of the Roman Catholic Church and CLI; bachelor's degree required, advanced degree and/or Certified Fund Raising Executive credential preferred; minimum of 10 years of experience in progressively responsible development leadership positions, which includes work in all functional areas (individual giving, institutional giving, planned giving, stewardship, board relations), oversight of comprehensive philanthropic program, and leadership in a major capital campaign; demonstrated ability to provide management oversight, leadership, and direction with at least five years of supervisory experience, including creating and managing a budget; knowledge of the dynamics of a national-scale nonprofit organization and of the Roman Catholic Church are preferred, including familiarity with diocesan and parish structures, and a thorough understanding of Catholic parish life and ministry; particular strength in developing the case for support and strategic, complex fundraising plans, and executing against those plans to achieve goals and objectives; history of securing six and seven-figure gifts, including cultivation through solicitation and stewardship, as well as experience working with annual fund strategies to effectively groom the next generation of annual leadership and major gift donors; demonstrated ability in planning and executing strategic communications to complement philanthropic initiatives and achieve goals; experience identifying, nurturing, and motivating board or other volunteer leaders, and a sophisticated understanding of their role in building an effective fundraising network; ability to extract and analyze data to make effective, efficient decisions about donor strategy and process.

    About Moravian College:

    Moravian College, the nation's sixth oldest college and first to educate women, is located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, in the Lehigh Valley region. The College traces its founding to 1742 by Moravians, descendants of followers of the Bohemian Reformation (John Amos Comenius), the 17th century Moravian bishop. Moravian College, a private liberal arts college, currently enrolls over 1800 full-time undergraduate students and over 200 full-time graduate students in a wide variety of majors, all of which are informed and based on principles of liberal education. The Seminary enrolls about 75 full-time students in its graduate divinity programs. During most semesters at least 14 denominations are represented in the Seminary student body.

    Moravian's two campuses book-end a mile stretch of Bethlehem's Main Street, including a block of Historic Bethlehem where vintage stores, art galleries, and local olive oil and chocolate purveyors share the street with inns and buildings that have roots as deep as our country's humble beginnings (for more information visit the Historic Bethlehem Partnership, where Moravian College students have interned: https://historicbethlehem.org/).

    Main Street is a huge reason why over 75,000 people call Bethlehem home. Bethlehem's charm goes beyond one block. Located in the heart of the LeHigh Valley, Bethlehem is truly a dynamic city filled with creativity, world-class events and festivals, and some of the best Christmas celebrations in the world. Across the bridge, Bethlehem's South Side is an artist's playground. You can see an outdoor concert at the amphitheater, catch a sketch comedy show or a limited-release Indie film at Artsquest, or walk along the steel stacks for a different view of Bethlehem's rich history. Bethlehem is a constantly-evolving blend of culture and commerce, progress and preservation. There's always something to do. Walk out your door and you'll accidentally stumble upon a street fair. You can get your Baroque on at the annual Bach Festival or bagpipe with the best of them at the Celtic Classic. You can fill yourself with fried food and fantastic (free) tunes at the truly epic nine-day Musikfest which draws a million visitors each August, one of the largest in the nation. Join the more than 5,000 people that descend upon the city for the College's annual Christmas Vespers service in Central Moravian Church in December. Come take a snowy carriage ride among the lit-up trees while you enjoy the holiday music that's piped in throughout the streets. Bethlehem is called the Christmas City (http://www.christmascity.org/) for a reason.
