Painter Executive Search is supporting The Contemporary Jewish Museum (The CJM) in its search for an experienced Director of Development to grow support, facilitate long-term financial sustainability, and extend the reach of The Museum.
Reporting to the Executive Director (ED), the Director of Development (DoD) is responsible for leadership, strategic direction, and management of all fundraising efforts of The Museum. As a member of the senior management team, the Director will work closely with the ED, Board of Directors, and key management across the organization to facilitate a culture of philanthropy and grow a sustainable base of support for the organization. The DoD will assess and execute fundraising strategies that systematically build capacity and grow new donors, sponsors, funders, and members while renewing engagement among longtime supporters. Working with a strong, professional team, the DoD will be both a strategist and an effective fundraiser who can direct fundraising efforts toward specific goals and focus attention where it is needed most.
The DoD working with the Director of Marketing will ensure the case for giving appeals to a diverse donor base and invites a broader community to support The Museum. Working closely with the Development Committee of the Board of Trustees, the Chair of the Board, and others, the DoD will be an internal expert and mentor, developing comfort with and commitment to fundraising activities and deepening Board engagement in support of The Museum. As an important external face of the organization, the DoD is expected to make a significant contribution to growing the visibility of the organization and to work closely with the ED to embed fundraising strategy into daily decision-making and operations.
The DoD will oversee the daily activities of the Development Department, including individual giving, institutional giving, gift planning, and museum events, as well as fundraising strategy, operations, research, and analysis. The current team of professional fundraisers includes a Director of Institutional Giving, an Assistant Director of Development, Annual Giving, a Stewardship Events and Corporate Relations Manager, a Grant Writer, and a Development Assistant. Positions for a Major Gifts Officer and additional support in Individual Giving are budgeted for hire in the coming year. In addition, two finance department professionals with development, finance, and data experience provide support to the DoD and the Development team. The DoD will work closely with the Director of Finance on internal and external reporting requirements, data analysis, and monitoring and forecasting revenues.
