Take Back California is looking for a Development Director

Take Back California is a nonprofit promoting clean-money elections. I’m on its advisory board and the Executive Director is my friend and colleague Dan Newman. They are currently searching for a part-time or full-time Development Director:

The Development Director is responsible for building, leading and growing the development functions of TakeBackCA.org. Our main focus is on major gifts and foundation grants; we have initial efforts currently underway in both these areas. The director will be expected to provide leadership to board members and staff regarding all development functions of the organization. Key responsibilities include planning and implementing:

  • An annual development plan (including task lists for staff, board, and volunteers)

  • An individual solicitation program including:

    • Major donor campaign (identification, cultivation, solicitation research)

    • Coordination of event planning (house parties and similar small events initially)

  • Grant solicitation (including local and national foundations)

  • Preparation of development materials (annual reports, e-newsletter, etc.)
