With regard to major gift fund raising, the Director designs and executes planned strategies for the identification, cultivation, solicitation, closing and stewardship of gifts from individuals.

In close collaboration with the Senior Director, San Diego and Orange County are the targeted geographic regions where a regional network is developed and sustained. This targeted approach allows the Director to coordinate activities in the most efficient and strategic manner. Regional assignments may be altered or redefined at the discretion of the Senior Director.
