Greener Partners is looking for a Development Director who is excited to join a team of urban farmers and educators working to ensure that all people have access to nourishing food. The Development Director will develop and implement a comprehensive annual fundraising plan, with a focus on advancing individual giving programs (major, mid-level, small), our annual event, and corporate partnerships. 

ABOUT GREENER PARTNERS: We believe everyone has a right to healthy food. Since 2008, we have worked to remove barriers to healthy eating through urban farming, equitable fresh food access, and discovery-based learning. We partner with schools, hospitals, and community organizations to develop sustainable fresh food resources. Our staff and Board engage in ongoing work to realize our vision of being an inclusive, diverse, and equitable organization that is reflective of our partnerships. Our approach to learning and growing honors diverse culinary, agricultural, and cultural histories. We are committed to disrupting racist systems and practices both within ourselves, our organization, and through the work we do in collaboration with others.
