We currently have an opening for a Development Chair. The Development Chair will work closely with the Board and have its strong support.
The Development Chair is responsible for:
Cultivation and stewardship of donors. This includes both personal thanking of donors and creating opportunities for meeting our donors.
Grants and grant timeline. Seek new grant opportunities and better cultivate our existing grant network. Grant-writing is a shared collaboration with our Chair and First Vice Chair.
Annual appeal letter, sent in early November. Analyze the database to manage the appeal distribution list, working with the Office Manager; draft the letter (with board input) and coordinate the letter's printing and mailing.
Events (for stewardship and fundraising). It is our 45th anniversary this year and we would like to celebrate this. Historically we have not done big, splashy events; we would like smaller events that show donor and volunteer appreciation.
Meetings with the already-established Development Committee. You will chair this committee, which provides brainstorming support and manpower for projects. You will also work closely with the Chair, Outreach Chair and Donor Appreciation Chair.
The time commitment will vary, but could average 6-8 hours per month.
Please send your resume to our Office Manager, Cari Brown at email@example.com. If you have questions, call our office at 434-979-9180 and leave a message on the machine.
