About Des Moines Christian School
Des Moines Christian School has a rich history of providing a faith-based education. We’ve served families in the Greater Des Moines area for more than 70 years. In addition to exceptional academics we provide enriching experiences in student life including fine arts, athletics, and spiritual formation.
Today, DMC has 1,150 students and more than 200 employees. Now in our 71st year, we stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before us and led us to our strong financial position. Our tuition and fees completely cover operational costs at DMC. Our annual fund, known as The Lion Fund, enhances and deepens the student experience and allows us to funnel dollars where they are most needed. The Director of Annual Giving contributes to this legacy and is an integral part of advancing this mission for generations to come.
The Director of Annual Giving’s primary responsibility is to advance our mission by growing giving to The Lion Fund through the strategic execution and management of a comprehensive annual giving program. The Director works in conjunction with all colleagues of the Advancement team, the Leadership team, and the Development Committee to foster a culture of joyful giving of financial resources among staff, alumni, parents and grandparents.
The right candidate will join an experienced Advancement team and lead the The Lion Fund outreach with passion. The Director will not only strengthen existing programs, but also take an innovative approach to elevating and creating giving opportunities.
