A college education unlocks social and economic mobility. With a degree, students gain the flexibility to
take risks and pursue their greatest ambitions. They can explore—and choose—from a broader world of
professional pathways. Students, equipped with the knowledge, confidence, and skills produced by a
college education, can build meaningful careers, stable financial futures, and successful lives.

However, many are left behind by higher education. Most colleges were not designed with students
from low-income backgrounds—a disproportionate percentage of whom are people of color—in mind.
As a result, low-income students graduate from college at significantly lower rates than their peers. In
2016, 58% of high-income students earned bachelor’s degrees within six years—compared to only 11%
of students from the lowest-income quartile, according to the Pell Institute. Due to racial disparities they
may have experienced since childhood, students of color are most likely to miss out on this proven
pathway to higher earnings and greater opportunity.

Bottom Line seeks to bridge this educational divide. By matching students with highly trained advisors
who provide knowledge and encouragement into and through college, Bottom Line has helped
thousands of students from under-resourced communities enter college, earn degrees, and launch
thriving careers.

Bottom Line seeks an experienced, strategic development leader to oversee the organization’s Greater
Boston Region’s continued fundraising growth and success. Supervising a team of at least four
fundraising professionals, the Managing Director of Development will be a key member of the
organization’s leadership team, a thought partner to a visionary Executive Director, and liaison to the
Development Committee of the organization’s Regional Advisory Board. Together with these partners,
the incoming Managing Director of Development will build and implement a strategy to maximize
philanthropic support for Bottom Line’s mission.
