Description

Organizational Overview:  

 

ATASK is the only multilingual and multicultural domestic violence organization in Massachusetts dedicated to serving the Asian and Pacific Islander community. Our culturally specific services, offered in over 20 Asian languages, include a 24-hour hotline, emergency shelter, case management and advocacy, legal representation, and English classes.  

 

For over 30 years, ATASK has been at the forefront of empowering Asian survivors of domestic violence and abuse to rebuild their lives. Our work bridges language and cultural gaps for Asian communities and advocates for social change. 

 

The Opportunity:  

 

We are seeking a Director of Development to guide all aspects of our development strategy, inspiring and engaging donors to join us in making a meaningful impact. The ATASK team has not had a full-time Director of Development in quite some time, so this is an exciting opportunity for an experienced leader to shape the direction of our fundraising efforts, including building and managing a comprehensive development plan. ATASK is heavily government funded and we are eager to continue diversifying our donor base to include more foundation, individual, and corporate support while maintaining a strong government funding base. The Director of Development will oversee the identification, cultivation, solicitation and stewardship of donors, directly manage a portfolio of relationships, and will serve as a departmental and organizational leader.  

 

The Director of Development reports to the Co-Executive Director (who oversees development) and will work in close collaboration with both Co-Executive Directors, the Board and colleagues throughout the organization to ensure collaborative and cohesive fundraising activities. They will supervise one development team member. In addition, they will serve on our leadership team, contributing to cross-functional alignment and organization-wide health.  

 

This is an exceptional opportunity for leadership and impact for an individual with strong relationship-building and networking skills, excellent strategic planning and project management experience. Successful candidates will share our passion for empowering Asian domestic violence survivors to rebuild their lives and bring a collaborative approach to delivering results in a small team environment.
