The Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with North Chicago Community Partners in the search for a Director of Development.

Reporting to the Co-founder and Executive Director, the Director of Development will strengthen the community’s involvement in North Chicago Community Partners (NCCP) through collaboration with donors, staff, Board members, and volunteers. The Director of Development will oversee all of NCCP’s fundraising efforts and will secure the funds necessary to fulfill NCCP's mission, while increasing capacity and sustainability, and acting as a strategic partner on the organization's Leadership Team. The Director of Development will leverage the potential of NCCP's diverse team to provide equitable educational opportunities and whole child support for the children of North Chicago.

North Chicago Community Partners was created in 2008 to help bridge the opportunities gap in the North Chicago schools so that all students can have access to the high-quality education they deserve. NCCP and the North Chicago schools have shown how strong, creative public-private partnerships can help improve public schools and ensure equitable educational opportunities for all children.

NCCP started as a bold and inventive idea and has since evolved into a vibrant organization with close to 40 employees.  With the help of its strategic partners and thousands of volunteers, NCCP provides programs and services to all of North Chicago’s traditional public schools through its unique community school model. A community school is a hub which unites educators, families, and local partners to serve and support children, youth, teachers, and families. Community schools flourish when high-quality curriculum and instruction are strategically complemented by programs and services that support the whole child and create a positive learning atmosphere. Working alongside district leadership, NCCP has strategically honed its community school model, customizing it to meet North Chicago’s unique needs. NCCP has fought for access to opportunities and an equitable education for every student – regardless of race, gender, language of origin, socioeconomic status, or zip code.

The success of NCCP's programs and the community school model is highly dependent upon recruiting, training, and deploying a diverse team of employees. NCCP team members are multi-talented individuals who are always encouraging students, volunteers, and teachers alike. Working at NCCP means being flexible and ready to do whatever needs to be done to help the community. From planning and implementing engaging family events, to facilitating service days with corporate partners, to building authentic relationships with volunteers and teachers, team members maintain a smile on their faces and a focus on their personal passion and vision for North Chicago. For many of its team members, this work is personal. 70% of NCCP’s employees grew up or currently reside in North Chicago, Waukegan, or Zion – and  all care deeply about alleviating educational inequity and making a conscious decision to be part of the solution.

This position requires at least six years of experience in nonprofit fundraising or private sector revenue generation. Experience working with programs that support children, students, and families is desirable. All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and résumé. Cover letters should be responsive to the mission of North Chicago Community Partners and the responsibilities and qualifications as stated in the prospectus. The salary range for this position is $90,000 to $110,000 annually.

NCCP is an equal opportunity employer. It does not discriminate against any individual on the basis of age, gender, race, creed, color, handicap or developmental disability, marital status, sexual orientation, national organization, ancestry, religion or citizenship status or any other basis prohibited by local, state or federal law.
