Director of Philanthropy
This is an incredibly exciting time in the ACLU’s history that presents an unparalleled opportunity for a dynamic, enthusiastic and experienced fundraising professional. After celebrating its 100th anniversary with a record-breaking event in February 2020, the organization is poised to capitalize on accelerated donor and funder interest stemming from its high-profile work surrounding the 2020 election, LGBT rights, immigrants’ rights, policing, and criminal legal reform. The Director of Philanthropy will leverage Pennsylvania’s key role in the nationwide struggle for justice and civil liberties to increase our affiliate’s revenue stream to support significant expansion of our influence and impact over the next five to ten years. Building on existing donor relationships and a robust major donor prospect pool, and partnering with our national office on key leadership gift strategies, the Director of Philanthropy will have a significant opportunity to increase investments in the ACLU-PA and to play a major role in an organization that continues to make a real difference in people’s lives. The right candidate will provide visionary, strategic leadership to build and strengthen relationships between donors and the organization, toward the goal of generating leadership gifts to support the ACLU’s current and future strategic goals.
The Director of Philanthropy, a member of the management team reporting to the Executive Director, is charged with developing and overseeing the program to raise funds, including identifying prospects that have both the capacity and demonstrated interest in investing in the ACLU to generate longstanding, tangible victories. Working closely with the Executive Director and key lay leaders and national ACLU staff, the Director of Philanthropy is responsible for planning, supervising and executing development programs to: 1) reach our annual and long-range fundraising goals, and 2) develop strategies to support the growth and expansion of the organization. The Director of Philanthropy supervises the Associate Director of Philanthropy, the Assistant Director of Philanthropy, and the Donor Communications and Development Operations Manager. Please note that, in response to COVID-19, this position is remote until September 2021, with the possibility of extension pending health and safety regulations.
