Director of Development

About Oxbridge Academy

Oxbridge Academy, a non-profit, independent grade 9-12 school in West Palm Beach, Florida, is seeking a director of development to spearhead the annual fund, major donor giving, acquisitions of foundation grants, and other fundraising-related activities. This opportunity calls for an experienced and entrepreneurial development professional who is excited by the opportunity to reestablish a developmental program and to tackle fundraising in a singular fundraising environment.

In a sense, Oxbridge Academy represents a grateful son’s effort to “pay it forward.” Oxbridge offers an outstanding financial aid program, with 46% of current students receiving some form of financial aid.

While the school has been fortunate to have initial and continuing financial support from its founder, it needs to develop greater and broader fundraising capacity for long-term sustainability within its community and from outside local and national resources.
