Description

Position Description 

The Development Manager is responsible for leading individual giving efforts for ICIC. Day-to-day responsibilities include identifying and qualifying potential individual donors (including from ICIC’s program alumni) as well as creating and implementing outreach strategies for them. In addition, the development manager will lead donor stewardship and renewal activities for our existing portfolio of individual contributors. The development manager will craft and execute annual small dollar donor campaigns for individuals and program alumni, as well as completing other ad hoc projects as needed. The manager will have a high degree of comfort and facility with data management and will ensure donor data is captured accurately, comprehensively, and with discretion. This position reports to the Director of Development and works closely with ICIC’s CEO and management team. 

Collectively, the development team is responsible for securing approximately $8M in annual funding from corporate, foundation, and individual sources. ICIC is a growing organization with ambitious goals for which additional financial support is required. Our current individual giving portfolio is comprised of ~70 donors who contribute ~$1M annually to ICIC. 

This is a full-time remote position. We are currently recruiting candidates from the following states: AR, CA, CO, CT, DC, DE, FL, GA, KY, MA, MD, MI, NC, NJ, NY, OR, PA, TX, and VA.

  • Work collaboratively with ICIC leadership to prepare for, document, and complete diligent follow up for meetings with individual and alumni donors.
  • Secure renewals and new commitments from ICIC’s alumni donor community, including designing and completing appropriate recognition activities.

  • Identify high-potential prospects for inclusion in the major gifts pipeline (non-alumni).
  • Personally manage a portfolio of 50+ donor prospects (including alumni and other major donors), including conducting primary research, creating individualized donor strategies, developing and cultivating meaningful relationships, and making direct solicitations. 

Data Management and Analysis (~20%)

  • Oversee the maintenance of the Development-related Salesforce CRM reports, dashboards, campaigns, etc. to ensure accuracy and update the system as needed. 
  • Leverage Salesforce data to track performance towards revenue goals, as well as track prospective donors through the cultivation, solicitation and stewardship stages.
  • Synthesize and analyze giving data to identify and draw on trends that will inform strategies. Regularly evaluate ongoing fundraising ROI and ways in which it can be improved.
