Annual Fund Manager

Colorectal Cancer Alliance
Washington, DC

The Colorectal Cancer Alliance is a national nonprofit organization committed to ending colorectal cancer within our lifetime. The Alliance helps patients, families, survivors, and caregivers navigate diagnosis and treatment options, connects them with those who can share experiences and knowledge and identifies resources to meet their needs. They partner with healthcare professionals and social influencers to raise awareness of preventative screening, and collaborate with researchers to better understand the disease and fund critical research.  The Alliance’s efforts are urgent, effective, and efficient because they believe that tomorrow can’t wait.

Reporting to the Senior Director of Individual Giving, the Annual Fund Manager will transition what has largely been viewed as a more passive annual fund development campaign to a strategic and proactive annual fund system aimed at generating significant growth. The successful candidate will operationalize the Alliance’s direct response effort (direct mail and digital appeals) to secure $500,000 in unrestricted revenue in the first year. This will include strategic innovation designed to increase year-over-year fundraising results. The entire effort is in support of an all-in effort to help the Alliance reach its ambitious goal of eradicating colorectal cancer.

It is not an understatement to say that the Annual Fund Manager will be part of a team responsible for saving thousands of lives and improving countless more. The urgency of the situation due to the 1.4 million people in the U.S. that have this disease requires that we find someone who can deliver results immediately.  The successful candidate must be a strategic thinker and work with the team to reimagine and operationalize annual, unrestricted giving for the Alliance with an eye toward accelerated growth. This will require both strategic and analytical thinking along with an exceptional capacity to operationalize this critical revenue line within the Alliance’s development operation. Candidates with experience in data-driven direct response who also have exceptional writing skills will enjoy this fast-paced environment that is built for success. The ideal candidate will thus be results-oriented and tirelessly committed to the mission of the Alliance.
