About KID Museum

KID Museum is the nation’s largest educational makerspace for youth. Our mission is to revolutionize how kids learn through the maker experience. Through hands-on programming and deep learning experiences, we empower youth with the creative problem-solving and STEM skills to invent the future. With a focus on engaging populations traditionally underrepresented in STEM, our programs aim to build economic opportunity and diversify the future talent pipeline.

Our vision is to become the standard of excellence for inclusive, impactful maker learning nationally, and a model for how to expand access to maker learning at scale.  Our headquarters in the Washington, DC region serves as our innovation hub.  In partnership with local school systems, government and philanthropic leaders, we design and deliver K-12 programs that produce results at scale in a large and diverse metropolitan region. We leverage the learnings from this learning lab to create resources, training, and technical support to expand high-impact maker learning nationally.  For more information, please visit  www.kid-museum.org

Position Overview

KID Museum is seeking a Director of Development to lead its fundraising efforts and drive the organization’s philanthropic growth. Reporting to the Chief Advancement Officer, the Director of Development will secure financial support, cultivate donor relationships, and strategize on comprehensive fundraising initiatives to sustain and expand KID Museum’s programs and impact.   

The successful candidate will have a Bachelor’s degree, or equivalent work experience, with a proven track record of at least 7 years experience in non-profit development with a minimum of 3 years in a leadership capacity overseeing cross-channel integration.  The incumbent will have corporate partnership experience – both securing new and growing the current robust portfolio – and will be comfortable with achieving/exceeding 7-figure annual revenue goals.  Ideal candidates are passionate about working to support youth and education, with an understanding of school systems.  Experience serving as a key external relationship builder and solicitor for donations from institutional and individual donors is required.  Familiarity with donor management software, CRM systems, and fundraising analytics tools is also required.

This is an excellent opportunity for a talented leader to be a part of an organization that has established itself as a significant resource for children and families in the greater DC metropolitan region and is poised for national growth.
