Advancement Officer

North Santa Barbara County
Full Time
Allan Hancock College Foundation

The Allan Hancock College Foundation is regionally recognized as a top-25 charitable foundation on California’s Central Coast. Our mission is to provide critical resources for student success at Allan Hancock College, a California Community College that serves northern Santa Barbara County. Hancock is a federally designated Hispanic-serving Institution, with a significant majority of students from low-income and first-generation college-going households.  Ninety percent of all Hancock students matriculate locally, which means the work of the Foundation is transformational for those who need education the most in our region.

The Allan Hancock College Foundation is currently engaged in a $10 million campaign to permanently endow the Hancock Promise Fund—with over $5.5 million committed since 2018. This hallmark program ensures that all local high school graduates can start college without the burden of paying tuition or fees. The Advancement Officer is an essential contributor to the success of the campaign and the momentum it will create upon its completion.

The AO is an organizational strategist and front-line fundraiser who builds relationships with individuals and families, community and business leaders, and foundation officers to align philanthropic giving to Hancock’s priorities. The successful candidate will be a goal-driven problem-solver who is adaptive, entrepreneurial, respected, creative, and convinced that education changes the odds for individuals, families, and our communities.

This is a full-time exempt position and eligible for the benefits provided by the Allan Hancock College Foundation. Though the Foundation office is located on the college campus, this is not a position at Allan Hancock College and does not have access to the benefits offered by the college district.
