This position is responsible for developing meaningful partnerships with corporations, securing funding from national, regional and state-focused foundations and building coalitions with strategic partners to further advance our mission. The Director will play a vital role in expanding the funding base of KABOOM! by developing and delivering compelling cases for support and shepherding prospective funding partners through every phase of the cultivation cycle. The Director will steer and grow a portfolio of relationships towards large-scale partnerships, strategic initiatives, and other sustainable growth strategies. Equity and community responsiveness are at the center of our work and the ideal candidate will have the ability to lead and co-create partnerships with internal and external stakeholders.


What you will do:

  • Develop and secure strategic, philanthropic and municipal partnerships that will help advance our mission to close the playspace equity gap and reach revenue goals of $30M+
  • Support meeting community play infrastructure needs through our menu of play solutions by identifying and securing six- and seven-figure gifts that will allow us to reach communities at scale
  • Help shape and implement our coalition-building strategy, which aims to galvanize local partners necessary to address playspace disparities in targeted geographies/markets
  • Cultivate a portfolio of prospective partners inclusive of targeted geographies and aligned with organizational priorities including racial equity and child development outcomes in health, learning, and resiliency
  • Stay abreast of philanthropic trends and proactively explore partnerships with mission-aligned organizations and funders in the public and private sectors
  • Collaborate with KABOOM! peers and leadership to write and deliver compelling proposals and presentations, manage partnerships, provide impact reports to funders, and identify new prospects
  • Lead implementation of key public-private partnerships by helping overcome challenges, developing creative solutions, and satisfying geographic-specific goals
  • Actively contribute to our equity-informed and inclusive work environment by taking an active role in promoting practices that support diversity, inclusion, and belonging
  • Fully embrace our organizational values of partnership, humility, equity, play and accountability


What you will have:

  • Bachelor's degree and at least 10 years of experience directly related to the duties and responsibilities specified. Proven experience in large-scale, new business revenue generation, managing funder relationships and growing a portfolio of multi-year gifts
  • Deep understanding of the current funding environment, with an exceptional ability to build strong cases for support that align with funder priorities, and creating a common purpose across multiple stakeholders that result in the resources and revenue required to advance what is possible through our work
  • Past experience cultivating and growing existing funder and/or strategic partner relationships with executive-level stakeholders
  • Proven ability to thrive in a fast-paced, entrepreneurial setting with aggressive deadlines; management of multiple priorities and projects at once, while balancing long-term goals with daily demands
  • Exceptional and persuasive written, oral, interpersonal and presentation skills with the ability to effectively interface with staff, community leaders and senior level executives
  • A sharp mind, top-notch critical thinking and organizational capabilities, adept at quickly absorbing information from various angles, always keeping an eye on the big picture while maintaining superior attention to detail
  • High level of integrity, trust and accountability along with excellent judgment, intuition, and common sense as well as the right blend of professional confidence with a keen sense of diplomacy
  • Collaborative, team-oriented work style with self-motivation and drive to get the job done with little supervision
