Job Opening in Fundraising

Development Directors/Associates have been hired by Moriah, BPY and Noam, and now Yavneh is following suit (see job opening announcement below).  I don't know if anyone has done any study to determine if the additional revenue brought in  by the Development team exceeds the costs of hiring them.  I also don't know if this has anything to  this has anything to do with the funding offered by the UJA-Federation/Avi  Chai Foundation.  As reported in a Jewish Week article, in order to qualify for funding from their program, a school must have “an experienced professional development director who works more than half time for the school on development and has previously managed a successful strategic development campaign.”
