Tabor Announces New Director of Advancement

Tabor Academy is proud to announce that Stephen Ginter has been appointed as the new Director of Advancement beginning in March 2023. He brings with him 15 years of fundraising experience in non-profit and educational institutions. 

“We are very excited to have Stephen join Tabor and lead our advancement team,” shares Head of School Tony Jaccaci. “Outreach to the wider Seawolf community is so important in keeping our school vital and strong, especially as we approach our 150th anniversary, and I believe Stephen will do an excellent job connecting with the Tabor family near and far. He’s a gifted advancement professional and a fantastic person who I know we all will enjoy getting to know.”

For the past decade, Ginter has worked at Key School in Annapolis, Maryland, a PS-Grade 12 school, most recently serving as Director of Advancement after spending four years as Alumni and Constituent Relations Director. Under his leadership, Key raised more than $12 million for its Annual Fund, restricted funds, capital projects, and various endowed funds. Ginter has actively worked to enhance advancement efforts at Key that have resulted in increased giving participation rates among a variety of constituent groups. He focuses on a donor-centric, student-focused, and mission-driven approach to fundraising and community engagement, which includes efforts on making all aspects of philanthropy more inclusive.

“Whether an alum, a trustee, or a member of the faculty or staff, everyone who met Stephen was impressed by his thoughtfulness, genuine nature, and commitment to building strong relationships across all areas of the school,” notes Rachael Beare, Associate Head of School for External Affairs. “He will be a wonderful addition to our school leadership team.”

Prior to his work at Key School, Ginter spent five years working with ALSAC/St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as a fundraiser, volunteer organizer, and event planner. 

“My family and I are eager to join the Tabor community. It was obvious from the moment that I stepped on campus what a special place it is and just how committed everyone involved in the community is to the students and the mission,” Ginter says. “I have been fortunate to be aligned with organizations in the past that are that same way, and it brings so much joy to this important work. My wife Caitlin and I are ecstatic to be able to join the community and watch our boys grow up in Marion and at such a special institution.

“Tabor has an incredibly rich history, and I look forward to working with the rest of the Advancement Team and everyone in the community to ensure that Tabor can continue to thrive with all of the resources it needs to do so.”
