Chief Development Officer (Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation) Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation

Marines make legendary sacrifices; sending their children to school shouldn’t be one of them. That’s why the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation was established in 1962 to honor Marines by educating their children.

The nation’s oldest and largest provider of need-based scholarships to military children, the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation is also the only program committed to awarding 100% of all eligible applicants. The 40,000 scholarships it has awarded, worth nearly $120 million, have delivered impact far beyond individual tuition assistance. Statistics show that by the time they’re ready to enter careers, children of Marine families outperform their peers by a nearly 2 to 1 margin. 90% of MCSF scholarship recipients graduate or are on track to do so—a rate that is nearly twice the national average—and 45% of these graduates are earning degrees in science, technology, engineering, math, and health science fields, leaving them poised to make significant contributions in fields critical to the military, to their communities, and to the nation.

To sustain this level of impact, the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation is seeking to grow to match rising demand. Applications have risen every year for the last decade and are expected to increase a potential 7% each of the next 5 years. At this rate, the Foundation must be prepared to fund more than $55 million worth of scholarship awards and program support by 2022. Under the leadership of President & CEO Margaret Davis, the organization has marshaled every department in the organization behind an investor-centered strategic plan dedicated to achieving this goal.

As part of its growth, the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation is seeking a Chief Development Officer to lead a comprehensive major gift program. Reporting to the President & CEO and serving as a confident member of the senior leadership team, the Chief Development Officer leads the design and execution of all aspects of a $19M program and of regular capital campaigns. As the Foundation’s chief fundraiser, s/he provides strategic counsel, directs and mentors a team of major and planned giving officers, and takes a highly engaged role both in designing the expansion of the fundraising program and in managing relationships with key stakeholders, including Board members, donors, and partners.

The ideal Chief Development Officer will have:

  • 10+ years of experience in the development program of a non-profit organization; at least 5 years of experience in a leadership role.
  • Successful experience working with individual donors and securing 6- and 7-figure gifts.
  • Demonstrated ability to work closely with senior leaders and Board members and to facilitate, guide, and encourage their engagement in the fundraising process.
  • Record of setting and meeting ambitious growth goals in both major gift programs and campaigns.
  • Prior experience leading an effective fundraising team to measurably increase performance.
  • Commitment to the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation’s mission and core values and an ability to model them in relationships with colleagues and partners.
  • Ability to work in an organization that embraces a model of steady leadership and accountability.
  • Bachelor’s degree in any field.

Washington, DC Director
Director of Development (CRFB) Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget

The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget has been one of the most visible nonpartisan public policy organizations. For example, during the 2016 election, CRFB was cited 11 times by moderators in the presidential election debates. As the newly installed Administration and Congress turns to tax, healthcare, and retirement policy, CRFB seeks to leverage its nonpartisan credibility to forge consensus solutions to economic challenges that will affect Americans of all ages for decades.

CRFB was founded in 1981 to provide outstanding nonpartisan research and analysis on fiscal issues for policymakers, journalists, and the public. For more than 30 years, it has challenged federal officials of both parties to acknowledge difficult budget realities and to grapple directly with the tough choices necessary to sustainably raise and effectively allocate federal funds. Today, its research has documented the threat posed by our unsustainable national debt, including that federal borrowing and interest payments have grown large enough to crowd out productive investment in the U.S. economy. Left unaddressed, our mounting debt will result in decreased economic growth and lower wages over the next two decades, affecting everyone who makes a living in the country and imperiling federal programs that people count on for healthcare and retirement.

While CRFB has documented the problem, its researchers and policy advocates have also worked to develop and promote nonpartisan solutions. Today, CRFB is seeking a Director of Development to expand support for this critical work.

The Director of Development will join an organization with a reputation for consistently producing the highest-quality work and an environment that prides itself on flexibility and initiative. Reporting to the President and working with Board members, the Senior Vice President, and other senior staff, the Director of Development will be a key partner in all aspects of building a sustainable fundraising program for CRFB. S/he will have access to significant resources as s/he does this work, including the enthusiastic engagement of President Maya MacGuineas as well as a database of contacts, connections to major foundations, and CRFB’s special events. Leveraging and building on these resources, the Director will design development strategies, create internal systems and processes, and build and manage a donor pipeline for a comprehensive fundraising program that includes individuals, foundations, and corporations.

The ideal Director of Development will have:

  • At least 7 years of progressively responsible fundraising experience, including some experience in a leadership role.
  • Prior experience fundraising within a complex research or public policy institution, particularly those with connections to CRFB’s issue areas, is desirable.
  • Proven ability to develop fundraising strategies that expanded both a donor base and giving levels.
  • Comprehensive knowledge of all phases of donor pipeline management, including prospect research, cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship.
  • Record of securing large (5- and 6-figure) gifts from all constituencies, including individuals, foundations, and corporations.
  • Ability to set realistic goals, to organize and prioritize multiple projects and deadlines, and to reliably follow through on established priorities.
  • Commitment to CRFB’s mission and comfort working in a nonpartisan manner to advance it.
  • Bachelor’s degree is required; advanced degree and/or record of continuing professional development is useful.

ARCE is seeking a Director of Development to advance this significant mission at an exciting time, as it prepares to celebrate its 70th anniversary in 2018. Working at the center of a network that crosses the academic, art, historical, foundation, and corporate sectors, the Director will collaborate closely with ARCE’s leadership to leverage this milestone as a significant fundraising opportunity. S/he will be part of a strong team—including the Executive Director, Marketing & Communications Director, and Membership Coordinator—that will marshal ARCE’s connections, expand its visibility and fundraising, and create compelling new materials and opportunities for engagement. This work, undertaken as ARCE implements its three-year Strategic Plan, will ensure that ARCE’s profile in the U.S. matches the caliber of its work abroad. The Director of Development will have access to a variety of resources.

The ideal Director of Development will have:

Director – Programs for Diversity and Success AccessLex Institute

Empowering the next generation of lawyers

As the cost of graduate education in the United States more than doubled in the 1990s and 2000s, one financial services organization pioneered loans that helped save law students hundreds of millions of dollars. Today, that organization has re-invested its loan revenue in an integrated set of projects and programs designed to directly increase the accessibility, affordability, and value of legal education.

AccessLex Institute, a non-profit membership organization composed of nearly 200 non-profit and state-affiliated ABA-approved law schools, is dedicated to becoming the premier source of clear, objective information that can guide law schools, researchers, and policy makers to empower the next generation of lawyers.

  3. Programs for Diversity and Success

In that capacity, s/he will lead a growing and national set of research, grant-making, and partnership-building activities in order to identify and promote interventions that have the greatest promise of (1) improving access to law schools for students from historically underrepresented or minority groups and from economically disadvantaged backgrounds and (2) supporting those students in their journeys to complete their degrees and become successful legal professionals.

The ideal Director – Programs for Diversity and Success will have:

  • 8 to 10 years of professional experience in research and/or program development; some experience working in a non-profit setting is preferred.
  • Sophisticated knowledge of at least one of the issue areas of Programs for Diversity and Success (i.e., diversity pipeline building and/or student support); knowledge of issues related to diversity within higher education is preferred.
  • Record of managing and evaluating the development of complex multi-stakeholder projects or programs.
  • Experience coordinating or playing a primary role in a grant-making process designed to advance a strategic set of programmatic priorities.
  • Record of building networks of program innovators, collaborators, and facilitators and of being sensitive to complex institutional and political relationships within long-term, mutually beneficial partnerships.

Director of Development (RAND) Pardee RAND Graduate School

At the RAND Corporation and the Pardee RAND Graduate School, “multidisciplinary” is more than just a buzzword.

Teams of multidisciplinary researchers at RAND and students at Pardee RAND recently worked together with Ugandan partners to develop a Top Chef-style contest that is creating country-wide excitement about a nutritional diet. Other research teams have evaluated the use of social media to track non-state actors such as ISIS and generated potential solutions to the crisis in the Bureau of Veterans Affairs.

RAND is the only public policy institute with a Ph.D.-granting graduate school, and Pardee RAND is the largest public policy Ph.D. program in the nation. The unique relationship between RAND and Pardee RAND creates unparalleled research and educational opportunities that help develop solutions to public policy challenges and make communities throughout the world safer and more secure, healthier and more prosperous.

RAND is seeking a Director of Development to expand funding for Pardee RAND in order to support these opportunities and to transform public policy education for students, RAND, and the broader field of public policy analysis. Reporting to RAND’s Executive Director of Development, the Director of Development will serve as the chief fundraiser for Pardee RAND and the primary fundraising advisor to the school’s Dean.

Santa Monica, CA Director
Director of Development (Operation Smile) Operation Smile

With 45 minutes and $240, Operation Smile changes children’s lives. That’s the amount of time and money it can take to repair a cleft lip or cleft palate, a facial deformity that causes malnourishment, speech impediments, and social ostracism. Most organizations would be satisfied repairing that damage alone, but Operation Smile goes further. It has turned its hundreds of medical missions around the world into the backbone for a set of programs that engage student leaders as mission volunteers, use missions to provide medical training to local doctors and nurses, and advocate for a right to safe, well-timed surgery around the world.

Operation Smile is seeking a Development Director who can engage new sources of support for this mission. The Development Director will galvanize Operation Smile’s loosely distributed supporters in the Northeast region of the U.S. into an organized network of major donors. The ideal Director will be someone who has encountered Operation Smile before, someone who will be able to tell a compelling story to prospects about what fuels his or her own passion for the mission. S/he will bring strong fundraising, relationship-building, and story-telling skills to the job, but s/he’ll have plenty of institutional support from Operation Smile: a prospect researcher, a stewardship team, and an existing portfolio of 100 prospects. The ideal Director will relish the prospect of being able to take that portfolio and run with it: of focusing on donor cultivation and solicitation, of working outside an office, of traveling regularly to meet donors throughout the Northeast, and of weaving new nodes of financial support and engagement into Operation Smile’s network wherever s/he goes. S/he will have a record not only of having done these things before, but of having done them in a way that increased a donor base and revenue, preferably for an organization in the Northeast region. Of course, s/he’ll have the initiative and maturity to do this work independently while also communicating regularly with a supervisor—in this case, the Vice President of U.S. Philanthropy for Operation Smile.

Basic Requirements:

  • 5-7 years of progressively responsible fundraising or sales and marketing experience.
  • Record of securing six- and seven-figure gifts from individuals and family foundations.
  • Demonstrated analytical and strategic fundraising skills, with the ability to recognize short- and long-term opportunities.
  • Proven success in managing a portfolio and meeting fundraising or sales goals in a metric-driven environment.
  • Record of designing and implementing effective cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship strategies that grow revenue, expand a donor base, and strengthen existing donor relationships.

  • Bachelor’s degree is required.
  • Residency in New York City is preferred.
