Executive Director, Fort Sumter-Fort Moultrie Historical Trust


Reports to: President, Fort Sumter-Fort Moultrie Historical Trust

Status: Part-time position (variable, 20-25 hours per week)

Salary: $40,000-$45,000

Work Location: TBD and home in the greater Charleston area 




The Fort Sumter-Fort Moultrie Historical Trust (FSFMHT) is the official philanthropic partner of the Fort Sumter and Fort Moultrie National Historical Park (NHP).  The NHP consists of four geographically separate units around Charleston, South Carolina: Fort Sumter, Fort Moultrie, the US Coast Guard Historic District on Sullivan’s Island, and Liberty Square (a visitor education center and tour boat facility).  The NHP also administers Charles Pinckney National Historic Site in nearby Mount Pleasant, SC. 


The NHP entered a formal relationship with the FSFMHT in 2001 for the purpose of celebrating the completion of the Liberty Square Visitor Education Center. Since that time the FSFMHT has planned and executed several programs including the commemoration of the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War, the Kids to the Park program, Adopt a Cannon, and various other activities.


The FSFMHT now seeks its first executive director to help the NHP preserve its physical structures and artifacts and educate the public.




The primary responsibilities of the Executive Director are fund raising and building popular support for the NHP.  The expectation is that the Executive Director explore different methods of funding to include a capital campaign, solicited donations, grant writing, and the creation and maintenance of a tiered-giving Trust membership program.  Other responsibilities will include

  1. a) the creation of an annual work plan with the NHP that lays out projects and programs that the trust will support
  2. b) the organization of special events that foster community engagement and facilitate fund raising
  3. c) the creation of a members’ newsletter
  4. d) coordination with the NHP regarding any support necessary for the FSFMHT in its special events and fund raising
  5. e) the maintenance of proper fund management accounting procedures




  1. Baccalaureate degree
  2. Outstanding organizational, written, and verbal skills
  3. Experience and demonstrated excellence in non-profit fundraising, grant writing, and donor relations
  4. A proven ability to develop and execute special events
