ACSI Welcomes New Vice President for Development

Jun 6, 2022, 06:49 AM by Caitlyn Berman

Colorado Springs, CO – The Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) is pleased to announce the appointment of Ben Waterman as its new Vice President for Development. Waterman will assume the duties formerly overseen by Dr. Steve Dill, who will be retiring July 31, 2022.

Waterman will provide leadership and oversight to all development and fundraising efforts on behalf of ACSI. He and the development team will advance the mission of the Association by securing financial support from private funding Kingdom-minded investors. Waterman will also oversee the team responsible to secure financial support from state-specific tax credit and other school choice programs. Last year, this team collected and distributed over $9 million of tuition assistance grants.

He assumes his new role today.

ACSI President Dr. Larry Taylor shared his strategic vision for Waterman’s role as a member of the Association’s Senior Staff.

“The development function of ACSI will be a critical component in allowing us to reach and shape the next generation for Christ,” he shared. “Ben Waterman is a skilled leader who brings tailored expertise in the non-profit development sector. His contribution will be key in strengthening the Association as we continue our mission across the globe.”

Ben Waterman 2Waterman has served in the Christian non-profit sector for more than 10 years in a variety of fundraising capacities. He most recently served as Managing Director of Development at By The Hand Club For Kids—a position in which he cultivated strategic relationships to advance the organization’s mission, raising $11 million annually and more than $40 million in capital projects.

Waterman’s strategic vision grew the fundraising operation of the organization, resulting in nearly double-digit financial growth each year for five years. 

Through these experiences, Waterman shared that he has “gained both knowledge and expertise from the various roles,” and that he looks forward to utilizing his knowledge for continued kingdom impact.

Prior to his time at By The Hand Club, Waterman managed a portfolio of major donors raising nearly $1 million annually as the Regional Director of Development at Taylor University in Indiana. He also provided oversight for marketing, communications and grant writing for 3 years as the Director of Development and Advancement Supervisor at Northern Seminary.

“I have always sought God’s guidance in my career,” he shared. “I have prayed diligently about this unique opportunity at ACSI and am certain that the work this association is doing is essential today. I believe my past experience has given me foundational skills in the areas of relational fundraising, team building, and team management.”

Taylor believes Waterman’s role will help open new doors for ACSI both domestically and internationally.

“The mission of ACSI has always been global, and I believe we are in a time where people are hungry for Gospel-centric education,” he said. “With a strong development function, ACSI will be fully equipped to further advance Christ-centered education.”
