The Chief Development Officer will play a crucial role in securing funds from various sources to support the organization’s programs and initiatives including funding from government agencies, corporations and foundations, and individuals. With a deep understanding and embrace of the start up culture, the Chief Development Officer will build and lead a development enterprise that supports best-in-class donor prospecting and research; the crafting of compelling case statements and funding narratives leading to successful grant applications and proposals; and grant compliance.

OIC of America (OICA) is building a direct line to economic power for America’s forgotten people out of poverty, into new careers, and toward stronger communities. Strategically located in the hearts of forgotten places, OIC of America deeply connects with the authentic needs of the people it serves. It is leveraging 60 years of experience to transform the lives of individuals and strengthen the fabric of communities through meaningful participation in today’s economy.

For generations, too many Black and low-income Americans have been forgotten and kept out of the economy due to systemic inequality in education and access. At the same time, the country is experiencing a critical labor shortage, leaving employers in need of millions of skilled people. This demands urgent action. OIC of America believes in acting on this pivotal moment to build the economic power of a forgotten population. Consequently, OICA and its network of affiliates is transforming its training model to provide a solution, the Sullivan Training Network (STN): an investment in people that addresses the national labor shortage. The recently launched STN connects forgotten people to training for in-demand, living-wage careers, and connects employers to a reliable workforce so businesses thrive. It’s the People’s Pathway out of poverty, into new careers, and toward stronger communities and economies.

With its updated career education model, OICA is a crucial bridge to a new talent pipeline, from training to employer matching. It provides tuition-free, high-quality career training for high-demand industries, creating opportunities for people to build economic power for students and their communities. OICA tailors credentialed trainings to local economies, providing a geographic and cultural lens to this deeply personal work of ensuring economic justice for all.

A bachelor’s degree or an equivalent combination of education and experience and at least seven years of fundraising experience in the nonprofit sector is preferred for this role. OIC of America will consider candidates with a broad range of backgrounds. If you are excited about this role and feel that you can contribute to OICA’s transformation agenda, but your experience does not exactly align with every qualification listed above, we encourage you to apply. All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and résumé. Cover letters should be responsive to the mission of OIC of America as well as the responsibilities and qualifications presented in the prospectus.

The salary range for this position is $160,000 to $180,000 annually.

OIC of America is committed to the inclusion of all qualified candidates. If you require reasonable accommodation in completing this application, interviewing, or participating in the selection process, please contact Michael Carver at
