The Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with The Fuller Project in the search for a Director of Development.

In partnership with the Chief Executive Officer, the Director of Development will nurture a culture of philanthropy that supports The Fuller Project's organizational and newsroom priorities while leveraging the talent of its staff and board. The Director of Development will apply a diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging lens to all internal and external activities while expanding the organization's community of supporters.

The Fuller Project is the global nonprofit newsroom dedicated to groundbreaking journalism about women to raise awareness, expose injustice, and spur accountability. Its vision is journalism that fully represents all women, giving readers The Full Story, and spurring gender equality.

The Fuller Project was founded on the belief that news coverage must represent the views of all individuals. When it does, journalism can fulfill its promise of helping to create a fully informed citizenry. Journalism has the power to inform, to expose abuses of power and human rights, and to inspire urgent action. Yet when the voices, stories, and perspectives of women are disproportionately left out, the result is reporting that reinforces bias.

Today, women are still underrepresented in news, especially those facing race and identity bias. This has been true for centuries and progress has been slow. As a result, the barriers and harms that women face are often considered tangential—instead of central to the security, economic, legal, environmental, and other issues societies face each day.

Through investigative and enterprise reporting about women, and by fostering a committed community of editors, The Fuller Project disrupts bias and redefines traditional news. With deeply sourced newsgathering and vivid storytelling, The Fuller Project works to provide a more nuanced understanding of global, U.S., and local news by incorporating diverse perspectives. It centers its investigative and enterprise journalism on women’s lived experiences, especially those whose stories are most often unheard in mainstream news, to reveal patterns of discrimination and illuminate solutions.

The Fuller Project brings journalism about women to millions of readers in the United States and around the world through legacy and local media partnerships. These editorial partnerships foster a community of journalists dedicated to inclusive coverage, drawing on expertise about the interconnected issues that affect women, gender-diverse people, and whole societies. The reporting aims to give readers a new understanding and better equip them to challenge harmful conventions that have historically limited rights. At least five years of professional experience in nonprofit organizations with demonstrated success in a development function (managing and forging relationships with multiple donor sources), preferably on a national level, is required for this position.

All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and résumé. Cover letters should reflect a commitment to a fully representative press that spurs gender equity, consistent with the mission of The Fuller Project.

The salary for this position is $125,000 annually.
