The Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with New Hampshire Public Radio in the search for a Vice President of Development.

Reporting to the President and Chief Executive Officer, the Vice President of Development will lead and manage the station’s revenue departments including membership, major gifts, corporate support, and grants. The Vice President will lead the development team in the design and implementation of an integrated fundraising, communications, and outreach strategy that meets the revenue needs of the organization. In partnership with the President and CEO and Board, the Vice President will design and lead a major fundraising campaign advancing the goals of NHPR’s Strategic Plan. The Vice President will manage the Development Committee of the Board of Trustees and work closely with all Board members on development efforts. The Vice President will partner with the President and CEO, Trustees, staff, and other constituents, in New Hampshire and beyond, successfully leveraging all resources to implement fundraising plans, enhance the NHPR brand locally and nationally, and advance the case for public media overall.

New Hampshire Public Radio (NHPR) has recently articulated this vision: Through trustworthy journalism, NHPR enriches lives and helps build stronger communities, in New Hampshire and beyond. NHPR fosters civil discourse by producing objective, in-depth reporting, and engaging content and by creating opportunities for diverse people to be heard on issues of civic concern.

Originally known as Granite State Public Radio, NHPR began broadcasting in August 1981 in the Concord-Manchester area. At that time, the station had 500 members. Today, that membership support has grown to nearly 24,000 people. What began as a single radio station has grown to a statewide multimedia network with 14 broadcast transmission sites that provide New Hampshire’s only statewide radio news service, a robust digital and social media presence, an industry-leading podcast studio that ranks in the top 2% nationally based on downloads, and New Hampshire’s only Spanish-language news service. Each week 146,000 listeners choose NHPR as their primary source of in-depth and intelligent news coverage, and hundreds of thousands access, follow NHPR on social media, subscribe to NHPR newsletters sites or listen to NHPR podcasts. NHPR is also the exclusive outlet for NPR News in New Hampshire and broadcasts national weekly programs such as The Moth Radio Hour, Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!, and This American Life. It also provides listeners with access to international programming from BBC World Service and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

NHPR’s mission commits it to telling the stories of a changing state. That requires the organization and its journalism to reflect—and embrace—the increasingly diverse perspectives of people across New Hampshire. It also requires it to model inclusion in its sources, in the voices it lifts, in its reporting, and in the conversations that it conducts; in the makeup of its staff, Board of Trustees, and Community Advisory Board; and in the ways it spends money and conducts its business. Equity and inclusion must be guiding values in how the people of NHPR conduct themselves and their operations.

A bachelor's degree or an equivalent combination of education and experience is required for this position as is at least seven years of relevant development experience in a mature non-profit environment. Familiarity with the New Hampshire philanthropic community is a plus. All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and résumé. Cover letters should be responsive to the mission of New Hampshire Public Radio as well as the responsibilities and qualifications stated in the prospectus.
