DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a teacher in need, moving us closer to a nation where students in every community have the tools and experiences they need for a great education. Launched in 2000 out of a Bronx public high school, DonorsChoose has since raised more than $1 billion to fund almost 2 million classroom projects from 600,000+ teachers at 80% of all the public schools in America, overwhelmingly in low-income communities. Equal parts education charity and tech company, DonorsChoose is a nonprofit striving to do profound good in the world amidst the kind of innovation, agility, and data rigor associated with the highest-performing startups. Our 14 board members (half women, majority people of color) include CEOs of major companies, Stephen Colbert, and three teacher users of our site.
DonorsChoose is seeking a strategic, collaborative Vice President of Partnerships to lead its Partnership Management (PM) team. This leader will develop and execute strategies to guide the PM team to achieve its revenue goals through thoughtfully crafted ongoing relationships with corporate and philanthropic partners. The Vice President will report directly to the Chief Revenue & Marketing Officer, and manage eight direct reports on the PM team.
The successful candidate will have a demonstrated track record of leading and growing partnerships, managing a high performing team, and developing strategies to drive growth and innovation. In concert with the CEO, CMO, and PM team, this VP will design and execute a partnership management plan to secure funding towards DonorsChoose's annual partnerships goal of $60 million.
In this role, you'll:
Set strategy for the team
Lead a team of eight high performing manager and directors
Serve as an organizational leader, inside and outside of the organization
LOCATION: The vast majority of the DonorsChoose 150-person team works out of our NYC office and we would strongly prefer that our next VP, Partnerships do so, as well.
