Open Positions on Team HxA

Development Specialist: 

After building a community and advocating for its core values over the last six years, Heterodox Academy is poised to expand its reach and visibility — in the public square, to new and existing members, and on specific college campuses. As the organization enters a new phase of development, it seeks a Development Specialist to manage its development and fundraising activities in close partnership with HxA’s President, John Tomasi.

The Development Specialist is a mid-level role, suitable for a professional with early-career experience in nonprofit fundraising or a career changer with a client-service background in finance, law, or other professional fields. The position will primarily focus on structuring the organization’s fundraising efforts – and the president’s time and attention – through careful planning, execution, and analysis of major giving efforts.

The ideal candidate will have excellent interpersonal skills and organizational abilities; a history of work with high-net-worth individuals and their professional staff; and a sincere passion for HxA’s mission. He or she will be motivated by building relationships, building and improving systems, and growing a long-term financial base for HxA’s urgent work in higher education.

This is a remote position that must be based in the New York City area, with openness to daily travel to Manhattan.
