Our Generation Speaks (OGS) seeks a highly motivated, entrepreneurial, and seasoned fundraising professional to serve as the next Chief Development Officer.


Our Generation Speaks (OGS) is the first and largest Israeli-Palestinian startup accelerator designed to connect the next generation of Israeli and Palestinian entrepreneurs.


OGS at its core is a cutting-edge, fast-paced entrepreneurial organization, infused with energy, mission, and purpose. OGS is partnering with Boyden Boston to seek candidates who share a passion for relationship-building, advancing ideas and leadership, and creating a generation of Israelis and Palestinians committed to shaping a peaceful future built on trust.


Playing a critical role, the Chief Advancement Officer (CAO) will have the opportunity to define a new position supporting an impactful, cutting-edge, and fast-paced organization infused with creative energy. The CAO will be a confident fundraising professional, experienced working with very high net worth funders, who will embrace the challenges of such an opportunity. S/He will bring an entrepreneurial approach, befitting OGS’s culture, and outstanding overall communications skills to take responsibility, make decisions, push beyond limits, and focus on meaningful outcomes. While also supervising a team of two to three managers, the CAO will work hand-in-hand with the CEO and the organization’s advisory board to reach ambitious fundraising goals as OGS enters its growth phase. In addition, the CAO must demonstrate a strong connection to OGS’s bigger mission of an Israeli-Palestinian future built on peace and trust, where there are no easy answers.


Reporting to the CEO, the Chief Advancement Officer (CAO) will be responsible for launching an ambitious fundraising program to ensure long-term financial sustainability. Currently, OGS is raising approximately $2M annually, and has a goal of raising approximately $5M per year by the end of 2025, when the USAID grant funding will expire. Philanthropy is driven by six- and seven-figure gifts, and to date, the majority of funders are in the greater Boston area. A key objective is to expand the donors base, primarily engaging philanthropists and foundations in New York City and across the US. In support of these ambitious but attainable goals, the CAO will have the opportunity to build and manage a small team, including a Marketing Manager and Development Manager, in addition to grant-writing and USAID compliance consultants.


Qualified applicants are invited to send a resume and cover letter to Wendy Wilsker, Managing Partner, or Tamar Copeland, Executive Search Consultant,
