Beyond your background as an accomplished, campaign-driven fundraiser, you’ll be adept at shaping new strategies, engaging new partners, and identifying opportunity. You’ll move from issue to issue, using your creativity, strategic vision, and tactical brilliance to engage the organization, our partners, and our community in securing the resources required to drive our mission forward.

Backed by policy experts, journalists, research scientists, community organizers, lobbyists, communications staff, and product developers, you’ll manage large-scale, seven- and 8-figure investment campaigns to launch and sustain our work across privacy and data tracking, food safety, the rise of autonomous vehicles, personal debt and finance, and on-the-ground organizing. You’ll join a dynamic team of accomplished development professionals with expertise in partnership development, major and principal gift solicitation, annual giving, planned giving, proposal development, prospect research, budgeting and financial modeling, and small dollar fundraising (digital and direct mail).
