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.
