Executive Director of Development, Central/Southern Hub

American Technion Society

Florida, Illinois, or New York

The Technion-Israel Institute of Technology is a major source of the innovation and brainpower that drives the Israeli economy, and a key to Israel’s renown as the world’s “Start-Up Nation.” Its three Nobel Prize winners exemplify academic excellence. Technion people, ideas and inventions make immeasurable contributions to the world including life-saving medicine, sustainable energy, computer science, water conservation and nanotechnology. The Joan and Irwin Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute is a vital component of Cornell NYC Tech, and a model for graduate applied science education that is expected to transform New York City’s economy.

American Technion Society (ATS) donors provide critical support for the Technion—more than $2 billion since its inception in 1940. Based in New York City, the ATS and its network of chapters across the U.S. provide funds for scholarships, fellowships, faculty recruitment and chairs, research, buildings, laboratories, classrooms and dormitories, and more.

The Opportunity

Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, the Executive Director of Development Central/Southern Hub (ED) will create and execute a comprehensive fundraising strategy to broaden the reach and magnitude of the Central and Southern hub, one of the institution’s largest and most lucrative territories comprised of key states including Illinois, Florida, Texas, Michigan, Ohio, Georgia, Minnesota, and the Carolinas. The ED will play a critical role in elevating the existing fundraising operation at ATS. Ideally, s/he has a sophisticated and strategic approach to major and principal gifts fundraising, bringing a proven track record from an institution that subscribes to deliberate and methodical top-industry practices.

For individuals who are passionate about Israel, this is a unique opportunity to blend one’s vocational expertise with a personal desire to play a role in the continued economic success and support of Israel.
