Position Summary

Want to help save the planet? One quarter of The Nature Conservancy’s funding comes from supporters who have named our organization a beneficiary of their estate plans. Many long-time donors make a gift in their will or trust to their favorite charities to ensure that the work they believe in will continue beyond their lifetime. The Conservancy considers these donors an important part of our “family” and invests the funds from these gifts in critical work to conserve lands and waters around the world for future generations. Join our initiative to build a meaningful stewardship and cultivation program for our loyal donors and help raise even more of these gifts critical to our conservation mission. This opportunity is ideal for someone who is highly motivated, loves interacting with diverse constituencies and supporters, and is interested in joining the world’s leading conservation organization. 

The Loyal Donor Program is seeking an energetic and dedicated professional based in the DC Metro Area to serve as Loyal Donor Officer in a number of Mid-Atlantic states. This position works closely with fundraising staff to secure bequest notifications, steward our most loyal supporters, and uncover major and planned gift potential. Our ideal candidate will work well in a fast-paced and high-volume environment, have experience working with clients or donors, and has exceptional attention to detail. The Loyal Donor Officer will apply knowledge of our local, regional, and global conservation projects to their donor-centric approach to cultivation and solicitation of loyal donors. To be successful and happy in this position, candidates should have a strong interest in working with donors, an interest in learning about our organization’s conservation priorities and planned giving, and be available to travel. We value collaborative approaches, diverse perspectives, and encourage innovative ideas and recommendations.
