Independence Mission Schools
Chief Development Officer (CDO)
Independence Mission Schools (IMS) is a non-profit network of 15 Pre-K to 8th grade elementary schools re-envisioning urban Catholic education in and around the city of Philadelphia. IMS schools are mission driven to provide a rigorous academic education to students of all faiths. Our schools have approximately 4,800 students and have been beacons of hope for families from all backgrounds for generations. Located in neighborhoods that have historically been underserved by other schooling options, IMS schools offer a faith-centered and academically rigorous alternative for our families. Today, our team works tirelessly to prepare our students for world-class high schools.
IMS is focused on creating a system where academic rigor thrives, and where our schools play an important role in transforming our communities.
The Chief Development Officer (CDO) is responsible for all fundraising activities in support of the IMS’ mission including annual, capital and planned gifts and properly managing the organization’s systems and database to record all donor records.
