Overview
World Wildlife Fund (WWF), one of the world’s leading conservation organization,seeks a Senior Director of Strategic Philanthropy to serve as a primary relationship-builder with high-net worth donors and prospects to secure essential resources for WWF’s vital goals.
For almost 60 years, the World Wildlife Fund has been protecting life on our planet—including our own. As the world’s leading conservation organization fighting to restore species and their habitats, WWF works in 100 countries and is supported by more than one million members in the United States and close to five million globally.
In 2014, WWF adopted a new global strategy that focuses on strengthening local communities’ ability to directly conserve the natural resources they depend on and that are coming under increasing threat from global warming, deforestation, and other dangerous trends. WWF helps transform both markets and policies to reduce the strain caused by commodity production and consumption and ensure the value of nature is reflected among community, government, and business decision makers.
WWF’s work attracts passionate high-net-worth donors, and the development team establishes close working relationships with these highly energized individuals. The organization seeks a highly-motivated relationship builder to serve as Senior Director of Philanthropy, a key role on this team.
Responsibilities
The Senior Director will develop, implement, and replicate best practices in relationship-based donor management, working both individually and with leaders, program staff, and the development team, and remaining in front of donors as much as possible, to develop positive and deep relationships.
Qualifications
The ideal candidate for this role will be a passionate, curious, and self-motivated professional who will work enthusiastically and collaboratively to seize opportunities. The Senior Director will have:
At least 12 years of experience in non-profit development with a focus on significant gifts; at least some experience in a large, complex organizational setting (e.g., international advocacy, think tank, university, etc.).
Ability to serve as a key member of the principal giving team with individual responsibility for securing $5 to $10M in new revenue annually.
Demonstrated knowledge of the principles and best practices of non-profit major/ principal gifts development (or a closely related relationship management process).
Track record of developing and implementing fundraising goals and strategies for donors rated at the $500K level and above.
Ability to succeed within a consensus-building culture: strong work ethic, collaboration, and strong written and verbal skills are essential at WWF.
Strong commitment to WWF’s mission, goals, and values.
