Bay Scholars promotes a life-altering experience connecting promising youth with transformative educational opportunities at Bay Area Catholic college prep high schools.
Originally started over ten years ago as a privately funded scholarship organization focused in San Francisco, Bay Scholars has grown to address issues of education equity throughout the Bay Area. Our Scholars benefit from a four-year $10,000 scholarship and access to transformative college prep educational communities, as well as programming designed to support their matriculation to college. Currently, Bay Scholars is supporting 425 Scholars at 12 Bay Area schools, serving San Francisco, Alameda, Contra Costa, San Mateo, and Santa Clara counties. Since its founding, Bay Scholars has awarded over $4 million in scholarships and plans to distribute over $1 million per school year moving forward.
The Donor Development and Institutional Advancement Manager is responsible for directing Bay Scholars' comprehensive fundraising program. This includes providing strategic oversight of annual, planned, major and capital campaigns, leading foundation outreach and grant-writing efforts, and managing alumni relations and stewardship activities. Additionally, the Manager will work with the Board Chair and Executive Director regarding external communications and community relations to ensure that Bay Scholars has a clear and consistent voice.
This is a senior-level role that works closely with the Board Chair and the Executive Director to establish funding relationships and secure resources that support the Bay Scholars mission and long-term strategic goals.
