Solar Cookers International (SCI) is seeking a Development Manager who appreciates the exciting role philanthropy plays in a well-lived life, and who enjoys developing relationships with people to help make their compassionate goals a reality. The successful candidate will work with existing staff to build on past efforts and launch new ones for a stronger fundraising organization to achieve mission goals.

Preferred: CFRE certification.
