Santa Fe College Opens Search for VP for Advancement

Santa Fe College's Clock Tower on the Northwest Campus.

May 2, 2024 – Santa Fe College has launched a nationwide search for its next fundraising leader.

The Vice President for Advancement and Chief Philanthropy Officer will be responsible for executing a strategic vision that establishes and implements an annual growth strategy which encompasses major and planned gifts, annual giving, sponsorships, special events, and donor engagement. Additionally, they will cultivate key donors and prospects, while developing a robust alumni donor base.

The new Vice President will take over for current VP Charles W. “Chuck” Clemons, who is retiring after more than 17 years of service to the college. Under his leadership, the college expanded scholarship opportunities. The Santa Fe College Foundation now awards more than $1.6 million in student scholarships annually. VP Clemons was instrumental in raising funds and support to help support several capital projects and expand a multitude of educational and academic opportunities to citizens throughout the service district.    

The college is utilizing the services of the consulting firm AGB Search. This is the same firm that assisted in the search that led to the hiring of President Broadie and more recently, Provost Nate Southerland.
