We’re hiring: SVPI Director of Development
Are you a development professional who wants to join a fast-paced, collaborative, and dynamic team? Eager for an opportunity with travel, professional growth, and strategizing in the philanthropic space?
SVPI, the hub of a global network of engaged philanthropists and social innovators, seeks an entrepreneurial, strategic, and collaborative fundraising leader to join our team as the Director of Development (DOD). Our new DOD will support SVPI’s growth trajectory by designing and implementing a strategic approach to fundraising that optimizes existing fundraising and identifies new opportunities for expanding fundraising capacity. The new DOD will have the opportunity to make a significant contribution not only to SVPI, but to the field of philanthropy at large. The DOD represents SVPI to its affiliates and to its external partners, exercises discretion, practices collaboration, and advances equity.
You will enjoy this job if you are a talented nonprofit professional who is excited by the opportunity to grow a development operation that will resource a bold vision to influence the field of philanthropy. You will be a strong candidate if you are ready to hit the ground running in the fall of 2019 to help meet the 2019 budget and set us up for success in 2020. You understand that racial equity, organizational change, and supporting a woman of color CEO in philanthropy require self-directed ongoing learning, reflection, and exploration of your own historic and societal power, and you have existing practices to help you in this work.
