The Chesterfield Education Foundation was founded in 1989 by community and business leaders who recognized that public funds alone cannot adequately support the ambitious efforts to advance student achievement in Chesterfield County Public Schools. Through the generosity of individuals, businesses and community members, the Chesterfield Education Foundation is able to provide private financial support to help meet the strategic goals of Chesterfield County Public Schools. These partnerships allow the Foundation to fund innovative scholastic programs, teacher recognition and enrichment programs, student scholarships, a mentoring program and the Bravo! Awards which celebrates outstanding alumni of Chesterfield County Public Schools. CEF aligns its mission and activities to support the goals and priorities of the Chesterfield County Public Schools. The Foundation works closely with the Superintendent and other school administrators to support continued implementation of strategic initiatives, while meeting on-going, basic needs of schools and classrooms, teachers and students.

|Development Manager||The Chesterfield Education Foundation (CEF) was founded in 1989 by community and business leaders who recognized that public funds alone could not adequately support ambitious efforts to advance student achievement in Chesterfield County Public Schools (CCPS). Chesterfield County Public Schools is an award-winning division working to prepare every student for success. With more than 62,000 students in 64 schools, CCPS is one of the 100 largest school divisions in the United States. Through the generosity of local individuals and businesses, the foundation provides financial support and volunteer services to various programs in the schools. Over the years, this support has included initiatives such as innovative academic programs, student scholarships, student mentoring, arts programs, and teacher recognition. CEF has aligned its mission and activities to support the goals and priorities of CCPS. By aligning with CCPS priorities, CEF strives to fulfill its vision to help every child have access to the tools and support they need in school to reach their full potential. More information about CEF may be found at www.cefva.org. Position Summary: The Development Manager will partner with the Executive Director and the development committee to successfully grow and steward the Chesterfield Education Foundation’s donor portfolio of nearly 200 donors. We anticipate that the Development Manager, as part of CEF’s overall development team (full-time staff, external contractors, and board members), will diversify and grow the current funding portfolio to at least $2 million annually by 2023 to support the strategic priorities of the foundation. The Development Manager will also provide direct support to the MEGA Mentors organizational efforts for fundraising. The Development Manager position reports to the Executive Director and works in partnership with the CEF and MEGA Mentors staff, boards, and other volunteers.||Fund Development||Oct 25, 2019|
