Working with NCLR's Development Team

Fundraising is only part of what we do - the Development Team has a prominent role in how NCLR presents itself to the community, to our donors, to our movement and our allies. We are a fast-paced team interested in creative collaborations.

We have the unique opportunity to connect with the individuals who support NCLR's work every day. All members of the Development Team have an active role in relationship building with our supporters.

Last year, NCLR welcomed our new Executive Director, Imani Rupert-Gordon, to lead the organization into this next chapter. Under her leadership, NCLR is pushing our work further in the direction of equity. NCLR turns 45 in the year ahead, and we have big plans for celebrating this milestone.

We are getting creative about connecting with our donors, meeting and reaching new donors, telling our story and cultivating resources to support our movement for LGBTQ justice.

Joining the Development Team means you are interested in stretching the possibilities, that you see fundraising as a vital part of an organization's sustainability and that you share our vision of LGTBQ justice through an intersectional feminist lens rooted in equity.
