About Horton’s Kids: Horton’s Kids is a community-based organization working to drive positive change in the lives of 500 children in grades K – 12 living in two of the most under-resourced communities in southeast Washington, DC - Wellington Park and Stanton Oaks. These communities are home to children and families with big dreams and the potential needed to achieve them. However, decades of disinvestment and systemic racism have created unfair barriers to access for these families. Horton’s Kids works to remove these barriers and even the playing field by providing comprehensive academic, social-emotional, health and wellness, and family engagement supports.

As an organization that serves exclusively people from low-income neighborhoods, we recognize that systemic oppression disproportionately impacts the most marginalized people in society, including BIPOC people, people with disabilities, people from low-wealth backgrounds, women, and LGBTQ+ people. We intentionally center these communities in our work and encourage people from these and other marginalized communities to apply for this position.

Position Description: 

The Director of Individual Giving (DIG) plays an integral role in the successful fund development efforts at Horton’s Kids. The DIG will join a six-person team comprised of a Chief Development Officer, Director of Events and Communications, Senior Development Coordinator, and three consultants (capital campaign, event, and direct mail) that will raise $3.9 million in FY22. The DIG has primary responsibility for the development and implementation of an individual giving strategy, including the identification, cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship of new and existing annual fund and major donors. This includes serving as a key partner to the ED and CDO in an upcoming $4-5 million capital campaign. This position reports to the CDO, manages the Senior Development Coordinator and receives administration (gift processing, database, acknowledgments) support from an intern. The ideal candidate is entrepreneurial, organized, a strong writer, flexible, and looking to make a real difference in the lives of DC children.
