Featured Nonprofit Job: Director, Development

The Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles (GSGLA) have been pretty busy as of late. After putting out the word last month that it was looking for a Volunteer Development Manager, the organization is now on the look out for a Director of Development.

The chosen candidate for this position will be responsible for all things fundraising. Specifically, he/she will be in charge of developing, planning, managing, implementing and evaluating all aspects of the fund development strategy and plan.

Other core responsibilities the Director will have include:

  • Create and implement diverse fundraising strategies to increase revenue annually;
  • Meet the growing needs of the organization with the goal of enhancing a year-round cultivation and fundraising program;
  • Develop and maintain relationships with key individual funders, Board members, corporations, foundations, volunteers, and alumnae; and,
  • Oversee and direct a team of fundraisers: Senior Manager of Donor Relations, Manager of Annual Giving, Special Events Manager, Grants Manager, Fund Development Specialist, and Donor Data Base Supervisor.
As the head of GSGLA's fundraising operations, the applicants for the Director of Development position will need to have significant experience in the industry. Specifically, a minimum of 9-12 years experience managing staff and soliciting major gifts will be necessary. A Bachelor's degree is also required, though a Master's or other advanced degrees are preferred.

Head to the NPT Jobs Career Center for more information on this job, including application instructions.
