This role reports to the Chief Advancement Officer and works with three additional professionals and several Americorps VISTA members each year.  While each team member is an expert in his or her field and industry, each is humble and enjoys a healthy team dynamic and within the organization's culture.  The Oaks Academy enjoys an extremely high donor and staff retention rate due to a true relationship-focused fundraising culture and compelling mission.  The Advancement team is small but mighty.  Each member owns his or her respective area of expertise but collaborates with other members to provide excellent results and often exceed goals.
