As we approach our 15-year anniversary, VOSD has an opportunity for a new Director of Development to lead our fundraising efforts through the next phase of our organization’s growth and beyond. Reporting directly to our COO, the Director of Development will oversee every aspect of our fundraising efforts, and also work in close partnership with our CEO. This includes primary responsibility for our entire revenue portfolio, such as campaigns, individual giving, major gifts, planned giving, special events, foundation grants, corporate sponsorships and an annual fund. The Director of Development also serves as a frontline fundraiser, with an emphasis on growing the organization’s individual donor portfolio by building and maintaining close relationships with key donors. It is expected that the amount raised will increase each year, as the Director of Development and the leadership team will work collaboratively to strengthen and improve the organization’s overall fundraising capacity. The desired candidate will possess strong qualitative and quantitative abilities: their fundraising style will include a strategic approach and impressive interpersonal skills, paired with the usage of data and metrics to inform the decision-making process and track progress against goals. In addition to the Membership Manager, VOSD will soon add a new Business Development Manager position to our team, which will also report to the Development Director.
