The Trust will lead a fundraising campaign as well as a public marketing and communications campaign to engage citizens in learning more about and connecting with the National Mall and the Trust for the National Mall. The Trust will be building its team for growth and success in meeting the objectives of the campaign over the next five years.

The Trust for the National Mall is seeking two Major Gift Officers; one is focused on corporate giving and the other one will be individual giving. Reporting to the Director of Philanthropy, the successful candidate in these two roles will develop a deep understanding of the Trust’s mission and impact in order to serve as a key ambassador, expert communicator, and relationship builder both internally and externally.

  • Successful track record managing a pipeline and portfolio and closing 6 and 7-figure gifts as well as an understanding of corporate philanthropic intent/trends (to include sponsorships).
  • Understanding of moves management and relationship building particularly with corporations.
  • Commitment and passion for the work of the Trust.

These are full-time positions with regular work hours and up to 25-50% travel depending on the status and timing of the capital campaign. The Trust currently operates in a hybrid work model and remote candidates will be considered for the two roles.
