You love raising money with people passionate about a cause, and have done so successfully for at least 10 years. An enterprising spirit who enjoys being part of a team, you have developed fundraising plans and strategies from the ground up. A natural relationship builder, creating and sustaining relationships with donors keeps you motivated. You’re also a great catalyst for others, able to engage and support the executive director and board in the organization’s fundraising efforts. While you’re a natural leader with strategic vision, you also have the ability to execute even small tasks and details to meet your goals. If this is you, keep reading because we have an opportunity you won’t want to miss.

We are looking for a polished professional who is energetic, a natural relationship builder, and who can engage others in the organization’s fundraising efforts. This person must also be self-directed and able to develop and implement fundraising plans and strategies from the ground up with minimal direction. The successful candidate will have a solid track record fundraising with individuals, strong communications skills, and will be able to effectively flow between strategic, big picture efforts and executing every day detailed tasks. This person will develop positive relationships with the Executive Director and the Board, with the ultimate goal of working together to further the organization’s fundraising efforts.
If you are up for this challenge and have a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree and at least ten years proven success in fundraising and development (preference given to fundraising in small organizations without a natural constituency), then you are the right person for this job!
We offer senior level salary, generous benefits with significant PTO, and a flexible, non-hierarchical work environment.
