About the Asian University for Women

The Asian University for Women (AUW) is a regional institution of higher learning, opened in 2008 and located in Bangladesh. The University now has graduated two classes of students and currently serves 500 students from 15 countries.  AUW aims to be unique in its mission: a regional institution dedicated solely to women’s tertiary education and leadership development, international in outlook, but rooted in the contexts and aspirations of the people of Asia.

The mission of AUW is to graduate the next generation of women leaders from Asia through a liberal arts and sciences education that strengthens their skills in critical thinking, creativity, and problem-solving. AUW was established to address two of the most pressing concerns in the developing world: first, the quality of university education; and second, women’s lack of access to education, particularly higher education.

About the Support Foundation

The Asian University for Women Support Foundation (AUWSF) was established in 2002 to usher AUW into its operational stages. Crucial support from leading aid organizations such as the Goldman Sachs Foundation and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation followed.  Located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, AUWSF has attracted broad support from governments, foundations, corporations and individuals across the world.  AUWSF has an annual fundraising goal of $7-8 million to support the University’s operations, and is supported by an active Board of Directors and key volunteer supporters in London, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Boston and New York.

Executive Director and Vice President for Development Role

The Asian University for Women seeks an experienced professional to serve as the Foundation’s Executive Director and the Vice President for Development.  Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, the ideal candidate would be a seasoned, entrepreneurial person who will offer leadership and stability, and provide an environment for a young development staff to flourish and take philanthropy at the Asian University for Women to the next level

This supervisory and solicitation-focused position would manage a growing team of as many as seven fundraising and support staff, while actively managing a portfolio of high-net worth supporters and prospects capable of considering gifts of $100,000 and higher.  Significant experience in the nonprofit fundraising or operations would be important for this executive-level position, though comparable nonprofit board or volunteer work could complement significant for-profit business development or project management experience.

Responsibilities:

The Executive Director and VP for Development will be responsible for strategic vision, leadership and management of the Asian University for Women’s Development team. S/He will be responsible for designing and implementing comprehensive development programs, including individual, corporate and foundation relations, major gifts and planned giving and all institutional initiatives to raise annual, capital and endowed gifts.
