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.

Oxbridge Academy was founded in 2011 by William I. Koch, CEO and founder of Oxbow Carbon. Mr. Koch graduated from Culver Military Academy in Indiana before earning his bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees from M.I.T. Mr. Koch’s father also attended M.I.T. thanks to the support of a generous benefactor. 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. Challenges include educating the community on the importance of donations versus tuition, and competing against several other local well-established prep schools. In addition, the school is located in Palm Beach County, which boasts a remarkable density of nonprofits with over 4,400 registered as of 2016, and thus, requires a creative fundraising strategy to distinguish the brand.

  • Enhance existing relationships and re-engage past donors, while building new relationships, systems, and programs that further tap into the generosity and resources of the community.
  • Educate the employee and parent community on the importance and necessity of giving.
  • Develop a complete program of research into the school’s key prospects and initiate an action plan of solicitation
