Development Director, The Public Interest Network
Direct the large donor development efforts of The Public Interest Network, including U.S. PIRG, Environment America, Green Corps, and the National Environmental Law Center. Recruit and oversee a team of dedicated development staff; harness the fundraising efforts of our policy and organizing staff. Build our identity with large donors.
For more than 40 years, The Public Interest Network has worked to protect our environment, public health, and to improve our quality of life. We face crises that demand thoughtful action at all levels—locally and nationally. The Network has undertaken this type of action not only through our membership-based advocacy organizations, such as U.S. PIRG and Environment America, but also through our commitment to many other social change strategies, including our continual training of new organizers and advocates, our litigation work to enforce environmental laws in the absence of government action, insightful research, voter registration, and through our stewardship of fossil fuel-free mutual funds.
Our social change work is needed now, more than ever. We are hiring a Development Director to ensure that we meet that need for years to come.
Most of our work is largely funded by individual ‘small’ donors, whom we have recruited one person-to-person conversation at a time.
The Public Interest Network is hiring an experienced Development Director to utilize our track record, our broad donor base, and our seasoned staff of expert organizers and advocates to leverage an ambitious fundraising initiative.
The Director will exercise independent judgment and discretion in planning, organizing, and directing TPIN’s large donor fundraising, planned giving, and capital campaigns. The Director will work to raise money both for existing initiatives and to identify new opportunities for building support, will establish relationships with prospective donors, and will deepen relationships we already hold with our valued donors. The Director will work with leadership to identify Network priorities, to enhance the fundraising efforts of existing donor staff, and to build a dedicated team of fundraisers.
The Director will raise money to support our priorities, with activities that range from 501c(3), to 501c(4), to express political advocacy.
