Director of Development

Company: Heading Home
Date Posted: April 2, 2017

Heading Home seeks an experienced development director (DD) to lead its donor relationship and fundraising efforts.  The DD is responsible for financial development strategies and for forging new relationships to build Heading Home's impact and financial resources.

The DD's primary focus and responsibilities are donor stewardship, major gifts, annual campaigns, capital campaigns, board leadership in development, events and other strategies, as identified.  The DD answers directly to the CEO and is part of an executive leadership team.  As such, the DD works in tandem with the Grants and Contracts Director and the Communications Director (both executive level) and oversees a development staff of 1.5 FTE.

Successful applicants will have a minimum of 5 years of professional experience in nonprofit development; excellent verbal and written communication skills; good interactive people skills that build strong and lasting relationships; high energy and passion for Heading Home's vision; demonstrable ability to work with donor database tracking systems and strong attention to detail.
