We are planning to reorganize our Operations team within the Foundation.
Looking for examples of how your Op's team is organized as well as their "buckets" of responsibilities.
Any and all feedback would be much appreciated!

Hi John! I appreciate the quick response!
Currently, in my Operations Team we have the following:
With the staff I currently have, we are stretched and there is so much more we need to do. I appreciate any advice you may have.
Although we're in higher ed, we have much the same structure as you. In fact, it was surprising to me how similar our organizations are in this area.
I have been doing my best to convince those in charge to add a full-time prospect researcher somewhere on our staff. It doesn't have to be within this team. So far, no luck. But I believe it's an important focus and a specialty area that our current staff needs help with.
Additionally, we have someone in the role of Director of Advancement. Technically, you could consider that role fitting under the "operations" umbrella. Her job description is a hodge-podge of responsibilities, including managing scholarships, producing endowment reports, running stewardship events, managing the budget, as well as other primarily in-office duties.
Like you all, we're stretched thin, and I'd welcome a restructuring/additions to the team. I'm curious to hear what others are doing in this area.

Thank you for this, Nate! It is amazing how similar we are in structure!

Be well and thank you so much again!
