KUNC and The Colorado Sound are looking for a new Director of Individual Giving.  We are a mid-sized organization that has a 50-year track record of strengthening community through public media.  We value teamwork, creative thinking, different perspectives, and hard work.  Our new Director of Individual Giving should have the following characteristics:

  • A passion for public media's role in strengthening community

To be successful in this position, you should have experience in working with databases, a love for customer service and an understanding of its challenges, an ability to learn and appreciate new technologies, and strong project management and communication skills.

Areas of Responsibility

As a mid-sized organization, every staff member wears multiple hats. This is the reality of our Director of Individual Giving position. There is the leadership responsibility of developing and implementing our fundraising strategies, but just as important are the responsibilities of customer service, data entry, and problem solving. The challenge of the position is to balance the strategic responsibilities and the daily duties. The reward of this position is the ability to interact with our members, knowing the impact their gifts have on our community, and directing our activities to maximize this impact.

  • Bachelor degree or equivalent combination of education and experience with database administration, customer service, marketing, and communication.
  • Experience with Blackbaud’s Raisers Edge database.
  • Proven ability to deal with customers in a variety of situations
