Chief Development Officer
Goodwill Industries International
Rockville, MD (Open to Remote Employment)
For 120 years, Goodwill® has helped people find jobs, support
their families, and feel the satisfaction that comes from working.
There are 155 community-based, autonomous Goodwill organizations
across the U.S. and Canada, known as Goodwill members, that nearly
two million people turn to each year. Each Goodwill member is a
separate 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that sells donated goods
to create job opportunities and fund training in local communities.
People come to Goodwill to use a variety of employment placement
services, job training programs, and other community-based services
to improve their lives, support their families and work towards
brighter futures. Goodwill Industries International (GII) serves as
the national office of the Goodwill brand and supports Goodwill
members, as well as partner organizations in 12 other countries,
through a breadth of leadership development opportunities, tools
and resources, and consultative services.
GII seeks a seasoned and passionate Chief Development Officer
(CDO) to support this work. The CDO will lead the diversification
of income sources for GII, build and foster a culture of
philanthropy across GII and Goodwill members (collectively known as
the Goodwill network), and serve as a key philanthropic ambassador
to the Goodwill network.
The CDO will build a comprehensive development office, including
successful identification and solicitation of annual, major gift,
foundation, and corporate prospects with a primary goal of raising
an additional $5 million annually to fund GII operations. They will
work closely with GII leadership to design collective impact
campaigns and initiatives that grow programmatic funding for
Goodwill members. Additionally, the CDO will grow existing tools
and resources to support local Goodwill competencies, strengthening
a culture of philanthropy across the Goodwill network. The CDO will
report to the GII President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and
lead a team of seven development professionals.
