Description

Salary: £37,571 - £39,859, depending on qualifications and experience

Contract: 1 year (temp to perm)

Hours: Full Time

The American School in London is an independent, college-preparatory, preK-12 day school, providing an exceptional American education to an international student body in the heart of London. Innovation and individuality are celebrated, and outstanding academic success is applauded. Students thrive amid high expectations and the joy of authentic learning experiences. Through the lens of intercultural competency, we inspire students to engage with others across lines of difference in a changing world.

Overall purpose:

Reporting to and working alongside the Director of Giving and Engagement, the Annual Giving and Events coordinator helps to support all the Annual Fund strategies for cultivation and solicitations, marketing and appeals, parent volunteer management, monthly progress reports, and donor stewardship events. In addition, the Coordinator will serve as the project manager for the PCA Auction and the PCA’s annual community events as well as provide logistical support for advancement and alumni events.

We consider giving and engagement an opportunity for people to experience the joy of generosity by supporting the school they believe in. Giving back is a key part of ASL and something that every community member can take part in. 

Summary of Duties

Events:

The Parent Community Association’s (PCA) Auction is a biennial fundraising effort led by parent volunteers and serves at the PCA’s primary fundraising source for a two-year period. The Auction also supports funding of specific projects outside the operating budget.

  • Support the PCA Auction Committee with all aspects relating to database management, event logistics, communications and marketing, and volunteer management
  • Attend and assist with all PCA community events to build and deepen relationships with parents and key volunteers
  • Coordinate welcome coffees with new parents to the school and other cultivation events as required
  • Assist with ensuring donors and volunteers experience high quality and engaging events that promote the Annual Fund
  • Provide logistical support for all events relating to local Alumni, Parent Education Series and Speakers Series, and other school events as directed

Annual Fund:

The School has a long history of philanthropy and volunteerism, and the Annual Fund is the bedrock of our fundraising program, providing the necessary funding to allow ASL to move from excellent to extraordinary. The Annual Fund provides that margin of excellence between our tuition and the full cost of educating our students, and it provides 4 percent of the School’s yearly operating budget.

The Annual Fund is an annual volunteer-based fundraising effort and gifts come from all contactable constituents of the School. 

  • Ensure Annual Fund volunteers receive timely and effect content and data points they can use in their peer-to-peer solicitations during the school year
  • Prepare all collateral for appeal mailings to parents, faculty and staff, and grandparents
  • Track all participation and giving from parents, faculty and staff and grandparents
  • Coordinate monthly progress reports and share updates with Annual Fund team
  • Participate in monthly check-in meetings with Alumni Giving coordinator
  • Work with the Marketing and Communications team to develop and deliver effective Annual Fund digital communications
  • Coordinate with the Advancement Services team to review donor prospect segmentations, gift processing and acknowledgements, and prepare monthly and end-of-year reports
  • The Coordinator will support any other duties that are within the scope and purpose of the job as requested by the Director of Advancement or the Director of Giving and Engagement.
