Vice President of Advancement (GN) Gen Next Foundation

Vice President of Advancement to join a team driving prosperity for future generations (Orange County, CA)

Gen Next is a group of successful leaders who seek to harness competition and entrepreneurship to solve the greatest generational challenges of our time.

The Gen Next network acts through three organizations that orchestrate a comprehensive set of programmatic, philanthropic, and political activities designed to address three areas where short-term thinking threatens the success and prosperity of future generations: education reform, economic opportunity, and global security.

The Gen Next Foundation plays a key role in this work as the network’s innovative philanthropic and entrepreneurial arm.

Adopting a venture philanthropy approach that combines the heart of an NGO with the approach of an entrepreneur, the Foundation incubates and grows ventures that deploy high-risk, forward-looking, and high-impact ideas.

Leveraging these results, it seeks to ramp up its work to develop solutions that can propel society, communities, and families toward a brighter future.

At this exciting time in the Foundation’s trajectory, it seeks a Vice President of Advancement to tap, build, and deploy a dynamic donor community and to be a key asset on the leadership team. The Vice President of Advancement will build the Foundation’s internal development machine with an obsessive eye toward the data, analytics, operations, relationships, and community that achieve a multi-million recurring revenue model. 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.
  • Record of building and expanding a national fundraising network.
  • Demonstrated ability to enthusiastically balance responsibilities and priorities in an entrepreneurial environment.

  • Ability to build relationships with high-level leaders and entrepreneurs.
