National Center for Family Philanthropy - NCFPThe National Center for Family Philanthropy (NCFP) is pleased to invite nominations and applications for Director of Fund Development and Community (Director).

Today, the field of family philanthropy is calling for support to respond to an increasingly intersectional world, such that individual and collective social-impact investments are more strategic, justice-minded, and effective. Technological advances are allowing us to engage, magnify, and measure impact in ways we could not have envisioned 20 years ago. Covid-19 has further pushed the nonprofit and philanthropic sector to reimagine systems of funding and support for addressing growing health and economic crises. Motivations for engaging in philanthropy, the structures that support giving, and the very definitions of philanthropy and family, are changing and being challenged.

The new Director of Development and Community is invited to build upon NCFP’s strong base of support from families and partner organizations who engage as participants, investors, community members, and co-creators in NCFP’s efforts to catalyze and strengthen the field of family philanthropy. Reporting to the Chief Impact Officer and in direct partnership with the CEO, the new Director will contribute to the evolution and execution of NCFP’s next-stage vision internally and externally. Internally, the Director will lead the work of the development team, supporting alignment and integration of fundraising strategy with the work of the program and events teams, leveraging data and technology to ensure NCFP supporters experience the responsive programming, community building, and impact that their contributions enable. Externally, the Director will build upon his/her/their deep understanding of the field of philanthropy to identify and cultivate opportunities for families and partner organizations to meaningfully engage with and support NCFP.

NCFP seeks a proven fundraiser and partnership builder with a minimum 10 years of experience across a variety of fundraising strategies, including campaigns, and relevant knowledge of the field of philanthropy - particularly with family philanthropy, high-net-worth individuals, and institutional donors. The successful candidate will be an exceptional relationship builder, increasing rapport, trust, and investment across a diverse and growing community of passionate stakeholders. S/he/they will be a strong listener, communicator, and storyteller who can articulate and amplify the values, lived experiences, and lessons that demonstrate the potential and impact of the work.
