The Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with the National Trust for Historic Preservation in the search for a Senior Director of Institutional Giving.

Reporting to the Chief Development Officer, the Senior Director of Institutional Giving will increase support to the National Trust for Historic Preservation by promoting and securing philanthropic support from institutional funders, which includes foundations, corporations, and government agencies. The Senior Director will have primary and strategic responsibility for all aspects of a $5 million to $10 million Institutional Giving program and will be the primary manager of high-level relationships with institutional funders and prospects, leading these efforts with the engagement and involvement of National Trust staff and volunteers. The Senior Director will be a member of the organization's front-line fundraising team. To assure sustainable program growth, the Senior Director will partner with department colleagues to grow both prospective donor contact, and the infrastructure needed to support that growth. Thus, the Senior Director will balance outreach and prospect contact with needed internal contacts, marketing, proposal development, development of systems, and other infrastructure building.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation has led the movement to save historic places in America for more than 70 years. The programmatic work of the National Trust focuses on four key priorities—saving America’s historic sites; telling the full American story; building stronger communities; and investing in preservation’s future. This valuable work is funded by passionate supporters that believe in the National Trust’s mission to save our past and enrich our future. Governed by a Board of Trustees comprised of nationally recognized volunteer leaders from the fields of business, finance, marketing, urban planning, and preservation, the work of the National Trust is driven by five guiding values: diversity and inclusion, collaboration, innovation, integrity, and making a difference.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation is a privately funded, non-profit organization based in Washington, D.C. that was founded in 1949 by a congressional charter to support the preservation of historic buildings, sites, and heritage. The National Trust ensures that all Americans see their history in its historic places. In telling the full story of America, the contributions of women, people of color, members of the LGBTQ community, and all that have shaped this nation are brought to light. The National Trust works within communities nationwide to help residents understand the history of their community, and to demonstrate how preservation and reuse of existing properties can create economic development. Through a powerful suite of funding, networks, research, and expertise, the National Trust's passion is building a community of champions to advocate successfully for a shared past and ensure the future of the preservation movement. The National Trust champions historic tax credits; provides funding for research into the economic, environmental, and community benefits of saving historic places; and brings experts in preservation together with community historians to make lasting change.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation values, respects, and supports the diverse views and contributions of its colleagues and partners. It is at its best when supporting diverse perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences. The National Trust strives to use differences to fuel its creativity and positively impact its work, culture, practices, and relationships.

A bachelor's degree or equivalent years of relevant experience is required for this position as is at least 10 years of experience with budgeting, staffing, managing a department, supervising professionals, and leading teams to generate high quality results.
