Established in 1932, the Museum occupies a 32,000 square foot, stone Neo-Classical building on a 12-acre wooded parcel of land abutting the Connecticut College campus. Accredited by the American Alliance of Museums and known for its strong collection of American works, the Lyman Allyn hosts permanent and special exhibitions featuring artists of Connecticut, New England and beyond.
The Development Officer will join a dedicated staff of 11 and work with a supportive and engaged board of trustees who have recently completed a three-year strategic plan for the Museum’s growth and expansion.

A work plan is in place to increase major and planned giving programs, donor recognition activities, and to build the Museum’s annual giving base. Qualified candidates will have a minimum of 5 years of nonprofit fundraising experience, including work with major gifts, will understand the opportunities and constraints of working in a small organization, and will be knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the mission of the Lyman Allyn Art Museum.
