Nonprofit Career Round-Up: 8/17/2011

Sorry for not posting one of these yesterday.  I had a pretty busy schedule, so my blogging time was very limited.  So without further delay, here are today's top nonprofit jobs:

  • Foundation Relations Officer at Student Conservation Association Positioned out of our Chicago, IL office the successful candidate will manage and grow a portfolio of regional (Midwest, Northeast) and national donors as well as work in collaboration with a four-member team of Foundation Relations Officers (FROs) charged with raising more $6 million annually, and a 20-member Advancement Department raising more than $10 million annually.  (My Take: For those not that familiar with nonprofit positions yet, this is a fundraising position.)

  • Director of Capital Campaign Gifts at American University: The Director of Capital Campaign Gifts is one of the major gifts fund raisers American University Washington College of Law. This position works directly with the Associate Dean on building campaign planning and execution, prospect management issues and overall stewardship and comprehensive campaign issues.  (My Take: This is another fundraising position.  Capital campaigns are the most common way for nonprofits to raise money, and they are usually done over a short period of time.  As such, you should be prepared for an intense work environment.)

  • Western Division Director of Philanthropy at Trust for Public Land: As a member of the Senior Management Team, the Division Director of Philanthropy is responsible for managing all fund raising strategies for the Western Division, overseeing locations in the following states: CA, CO, HI, MT, OR, & WA.  (My Take: You will be responsible for all sorts of tasks in this position.  Taking a quick glance at the job requirements, I saw that you will have to do some grant writing and have some experience in closing major gifts.)
