For 19 years, the Partnership for Public Service has brought people together for constructive conversations and actions to improve the way our federal government works. Through thought leadership and a wide array of programs and services, the Partnership works to create a high-performing government by addressing linchpin issues such as government reform and innovation, federal leadership, and the presidential transition process. Since its founding, the Partnership’s nonpartisan stance has allowed it to collaborate with different stakeholders who share its vision for a better-functioning government.

The COVID-19 pandemic leaves no doubt: government matters. The Partnership’s mission has a new urgency in this time of crisis for our country and our government. We know what it takes to improve government and are redoubling our efforts to partner with federal leaders, identify opportunities where we can contribute, and engage new allies around the need for a more effective and efficient government.

The Partnership for Public Service is seeking an experienced and ambitious fundraiser to engage high-net-worth individuals to invest in its mission. The Senior Manager, Major Gifts will work closely with the Partnership’s program leaders, executive leaders, and Board members to lead a comprehensive major giving program, expanding the number of individual donors, growing a portfolio of donors capable of making six-figure gifts, and working with program staff to identify fundable opportunities.

The development team will also capitalize on a forthcoming brand study to develop a compelling case for support of the Partnership’s mission, impact and programs.

The successful candidate will bring a “start-up mentality” to the Partnership, ready to seize opportunities with creativity and confidence and to work with a wide variety of stakeholders in a strictly nonpartisan setting.

The VP will coordinate closely with team members to develop relationships and steward future donors and will build a donor engagement framework with defined donor circles, KPIs, and stewardship plans.

The ideal candidate will be a savvy and effective operator who can seize the opportunity to bolster the engagement of the membership base while optimizing it for broader giving. Specific qualifications include:

  • At least 8 to 10 years of fundraising experience, including experience soliciting and stewarding $100K+ gifts.
