The Massachusetts Director of Development (DOD) is a fundraising leader who leads a team of seasoned, collaborative professionals to raise financial support for local, regional, and international conservation priorities. They are entrepreneurial and motivated to expand our donor base in order to help us reach our full potential in the Boston market and beyond. The DOD must be results oriented and able work collaboratively with colleagues, donors, and volunteers across a dispersed and complex global organization. Across these roles, the DOD works to integrate development with conservation and policy initiatives. To that end, a key role for the DOD is to bring donor perspective to organizational decisions and ensure integration of conservation priorities within the Development Program. The DOD is responsible for the program’s portfolio of donors and, leading by example, will be accountable for managing approximately 10 significant donor relationships aimed at securing seven and eight-figure gifts.
The DOD also shares leadership responsibility for building and engaging the Board of Trustees and, with the State Director, staffs the Development Committee of the Board. They are responsible for building a culture of philanthropy within the chapter and encourages all staff and volunteers to see themselves in fundraising roles. The Director of Development reports to the State Director and serves as an active member of Massachusetts Chapter’s senior leadership team.
