The Development Manager – Individual Giving (DM-IG) will play a critical role in fundraising for New Door Ventures’ program operations and growth goals in the San Francisco Bay Area. Reporting to the Director of Development & Marketing, the DM-IG will be charged with improving individual giving systems, supporting and performing direct fundraising by engaging, cultivating, and soliciting individual donors, and assisting in the overall efforts of the development department, which has an annual goal of $3.8MM for the current fiscal year.
Working in close collaboration with a small, results-oriented team and the Ambassadors Council (junior board), the DM-IG will have the opportunity to leverage a proven program to attract the support of individuals and family foundations, as well as working to secure broad-based and volunteer giving. The Development Manager – Individual Giving will spend a majority of their time on activities related to identifying, researching, engaging, cultivating, renewing, and securing gifts with a goal of raising $1.8MM in individual donations in the 2018-19 fiscal year, and increasing giving annually in future years. We are seeking a creative, organized and collaborative individual to maintain a base of donors, increase individual giving, and systematize individual giving efforts in partnership with the development team to strengthen relationships with our supporters.
