Educational journeys only happen once. The challenge parents face is making sure their children are on the right path, one that guides them in the best direction and allows them to follow their successes—and find lessons in failure. Mounds Park Academy believes that the best educational path is one that instills passion for knowledge and equips children to improve our world. It strives to teach students to think independently, communicate effectively, and act with respect and integrity in a diverse community that models intellectual ambition, global responsibility, and the joy of learning. Since its 1982 inception, Mounds Park Academy has continuously established itself as a top-tier college-preparatory school in the Twin Cities.

If the mission of Mounds Park Academy intrigues and inspires you, and you’d like to contribute your skills to further its objectives, consider joining the Academy as its Director of Development and Community Engagement, a development professional whose genuine approach and authentic style match the school’s inclusive, supportive and encouraging culture. The Director of Development and Community Engagement is responsible for establishing and implementing the infrastructure and comprehensive plan needed to grow the school’s revenue through the solicitation of major gifts, the annual fund, special events, planned giving, corporate and foundation support, and capital campaign projects necessary to advance the mission of Mounds Park Academy.

The next Director of Development and Community Engagement will be a dynamic and engaging development leader, with credibility in fundraising, including proven leadership of a fundraising team that has raised between $1-2M annually and had capital campaign experience. Mounds Park Academy seeks a leader who thrives on innovation, creativity and collaboration – the hallmarks of Mounds Park Academy. A Bachelor’s degree is required, as well as 7+ years’ experience in fundraising, preferably with direct experience with major gift/annual fund development.
