Campaign Director

National Museum of African American History and Culture |

Smithsonian Institution

Washington, Dist. Columbia

The National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) is the first and largest national museum solely devoted to the study of African American history and culture. It launched in 2016 and quickly became a pilgrimage site for millions of individuals from around the world. As the newest member of the Smithsonian family, NMAAHC is already reaching millions worldwide; leading cutting-edge scholarship and global collaboration; designing transformational education and public programs; creating award winning exhibitions; and building one of the largest collections of African American artifacts to preserve this rich history.

The Museum bridges a major gap in our national memory with exhibitions and public programs that focus on a wide arc of history: Slavery, Reconstruction, the Harlem Renaissance, the Great Migrations to the North and West, Segregation, the Civil Rights movement, and beyond, including issues of the 21st century. It also celebrates African American creativity and cultural expression through art, dance, theater, and literature.

As a digital museum with 155 video programs and 50 touch-screen and 14 tablet-based interactive stations, NMAAHC harnesses data and technology to develop innovative experiences, enhance educational programs, and facilitate research and institutional collaboration and partnerships. The Museum's current award-winning digital presence includes the website, the mobile app, the social media program, and interactive experiences.

The Museum received $270 million from the United States Congress and because of the efforts of Founding Director Lonnie Bunch, the NMAAHC Advisory Council, and the Museum's staff, an additional $400 million was raised in gifts and pledges to construct the Museum and build its collection. The first capital campaign serves as an exemplar for fundraising at the Smithsonian and is reflective of a far-reaching campaign with a diverse group of more than 170,000 donors throughout the United States and beyond. Approximately 70 percent of the 144 individual founding donors to NMAAHC contributing $1 million or more are African American. The capital campaign yielded leadership gifts of $10 and $20 million as well as an illuminating emergence of first-time donors to the Smithsonian. The vision for the Museum inspired a sense of shared ownership, and a widespread affinity motivated many donors to give at higher levels.

The overwhelming success of the NMAAHC capital campaign can be attributed, in part, to a well-established Museum Advisory Council. The Council and Museum leadership team wish to continue the momentum, visibility, and social and cultural currency with a second campaign that will secure the Museum's financial well-being for future generations.

Amid this favorable, forward-looking context, NMAAHC seeks candidates for the newly created position of Campaign Director. Reporting to the Associate Director for External Affairs, the Campaign Director is a senior member of the NMAAHC Advancement team. This position will be primarily responsible for the overall strategy planning, implementation, and management of the fundraising campaign to build the Museum's endowment and secure financial support for current programs and initiatives. The Campaign Director will maintain and manage a personal portfolio of select high-potential campaign prospects in support of the Council and key volunteer solicitations. S/he will strive to attain a balance between the decidedly entrepreneurial, nimble development activity that led to the Museum's initial philanthropic success and further develop campaign activities to ensure that the Museum is fully incorporating best practices and emerging trends in philanthropy, thereby optimizing campaign fundraising. The Campaign Director must champion strategic, data-informed decision-making, and an ethos of continuous improvement, transparency, and accountability.

Required qualifications and experience:

- Dedication to the mission and goals of NMAAHC, and broad cultural knowledge regarding African American philanthropic communities and a sophisticated understanding of key issues therein. A working knowledge of African American history is strongly preferred.

- Bachelor's degree required. Advanced degree preferred.

- Minimum of seven years of experience in progressively responsible development leadership positions, which includes work in all functional areas (individual giving, institutional giving, planned giving, stewardship, board relations) and participation in a major capital campaign (planning, implementation, management, and successful conclusion), preferably within a major cultural institution, nonprofit organization, educational institution, or other environment of similar complexity.

- Experience in developing, implementing, and monitoring strategic campaign plans, including creating and managing a budget, as well as reporting on progress to senior administrative leaders and board members. Skilled at goal setting and measuring success, and agility in addressing alternate program directions to meet goals when necessary.

- Particular strength in developing the case for support and strategic, complex, and innovative fundraising plans, and executing against those plans to achieve goals and objectives.

- Hands-on experience with six and seven-figure gifts, including cultivation through solicitation and stewardship. Success in identifying prospects and securing gifts from both defined and undefined constituencies.

- Demonstrated ability in planning and executing integrated, strategic communications in support of achieving fundraising goals.

- Experience in identifying, nurturing, and motivating volunteers, particularly board members, and an appreciation for their role in building an effective fundraising network.

- The ability to extract and analyze data to make effective and efficient decisions about strategy and process. A working knowledge of modern data management practices and techniques, including database information systems, data modeling, and analysis is a plus.

- The ability and willingness to travel as necessary, nationally and internationally.

Please note: The initial appointment to this position is designated not to exceed two years, but the appointment may be extended on a biannual basis.

The Smithsonian Institution is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer. Candidates of all backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

Executive Director and Vice President of Development

The Fund for the Boston Public Library

Boston, MA

https://www.bpl.org/

Libraries have never been more important or useful.  In an era of ever-expanding horizons of knowledge, but with fewer opportunities for person-to-person connections, the Boston Public Library (BPL) and its branches serve as civic hubs spread across the city.

Established in 1848, the BPL is a pioneer of public library service in America.  It was the first large free municipal library in the United States; the first public library to lend books; the first to have a branch library; and the first to have a children’s room. Today, under the leadership of Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh, the BPL features a central library and 26 neighborhood branches and is recognized not only locally but nationally as an historic cultural institution.

The Fund for the Boston Public Library is a new and independent nonprofit designed to develop, cultivate and steward philanthropic relationships and partnerships in support of the Boston Public Library. The vision is to ensure greater alignment and interconnection with BPL leadership and governance, as well as broaden the BPL’s base of support by building relationships and investments tied to the Library’s vision and priorities, in terms of profile, programs and philanthropy.

With the commitment of the Mayor, an expanded Library Board and both a new BPL President and BPL Board Chair, this is a transformational moment for one of Boston’s most iconic institutions, destined to be a north star in Boston’s philanthropic universe. The incoming Executive Director (ED) will support an impactful mission that organizes and galvanizes donors for the benefit of the Library, for the people it serves today and for generations to come.

Leading this newly created entity for one of the nation’s premier cultural and educational institutions, the Executive Director of the Fund will be an experienced, broadly talented leader who has a deep appreciation for the multifaceted mission of libraries, including the ever-important and changing role they play nationally, internationally, and in serving their own communities.

The Executive Director of The Fund for the Boston Public Library will also serve as Vice President for Development of the Boston Public Library as a member of the President’s cabinet and leadership team. The incoming ED will be the chief architect of a new and complex endeavor and therefore must possess the entrepreneurial vision and development know-how to build a fundraising operation from the ground up.

Vice President for Advancement

University of Richmond

Richmond, VA

Founded in 1830, the University of Richmond's learning and research environment is grounded in the liberal arts and enriched by its distinctive array of schools, with a singular integration of learning and scholarship across campus. It is defined by a culture of interdisciplinary connections, collaboration, and creativity, guaranteeing students close interaction with faculty and the ability to craft their academic experience.

The University is the nation's only top liberal arts college that is also home to a top-ranked business school, the first undergraduate school of leadership studies in the nation, a highly regarded school of law, and a school of professional and continuing studies that reaches thousands of individuals in the region each year. Thus, the University of Richmond offers the intimacy of a small college and the opportunities that rival those of larger institutions, including a strong Division I athletics program. These distinctions, among others, have led to a passionate and committed alumni base with approximately 35,000 “solicitable” donors.

The University of Richmond has been consistently recognized as one of the best liberal arts colleges in the nation. It is ranked 25th among national liberal arts colleges by U.S. News & World Report, and the Robins School of Business is ranked 21st by Poets & Quants in its Best Undergraduate Business School Programs. The University of Richmond School of Law is ranked 50th by U.S. News & World Report. The University is consistently cited as a “best value” college by U.S. News & World ReportSmartMoneyKiplinger's Personal Finance, and USA Today-Princeton Review.

The University distinguishes itself in its commitment to ensuring the equity and accessibility of its transformative educational opportunities. Richmond is among a very small number of colleges and universities in the U.S. that meets 100 percent of demonstrated need for admitted first-year students and maintains a need-blind admission policy for U.S. citizens and permanent residents. Through Richmond's Promise to Virginia, the University also provides a financial aid award equal to tuition, room, and board to all Virginia students who are admitted and whose annual family income is less than $60,000.

The University seeks candidates for the role of Vice President for Advancement (Vice President). Reporting to the Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, with unfettered access to and a strong partnership with the President, the Vice President is a member of the President's Cabinet and has primary oversight responsibility for the Advancement Office, which consists of approximately 80 talented staff members. The Advancement Office is comprised of four distinct departments: Development; Advancement Systems; Foundation, Corporate and Government Relations (government grants); and Alumni Affairs/Career Services. The mission of the Advancement Office is to engage current and future alumni through meaningful programs, activities, and communication; connect the University community of alumni, parents, and friends; and sustain Spider spirit by encouraging the gifts of time, talent, and treasure. The Vice President provides strong, creative, energetic, and strategic leadership on all advancement initiatives, programs, and functions, both short and long-term, with responsibility for building a major-gifts-focused culture of philanthropy and significantly increasing annual contributed revenue. The Vice President will serve as chief campaign officer for any future University campaigns.

Required qualifications and experience:

- Genuine enthusiasm for and commitment to the University of Richmond's mission and history, as well as for the value of liberal arts education.

- Bachelor's degree required; advanced degree preferred.

- Minimum of 12 years of experience in progressively responsible advancement leadership positions, which includes work in all functional areas of development (individual giving, institutional giving, planned giving, stewardship, board relations) and leadership of a major capital campaign. Sophisticated knowledge of the respective roles of alumni relations, career services, and operational systems in a best-practices advancement program and a demonstrated track record of strategic collaboration with corresponding functional leaders. Experience working in an institution of higher education or nonprofit environment of similar complexity is strongly preferred.

- Demonstrated ability to provide management oversight, leadership, and direction with at least five years of significant supervisory experience, including creating and managing a budget.

- Must be steeped in modern philanthropy best practices and able to effectively integrate advancement-related functions.

- Strength in developing the case for support and strategic, complex, and innovative fundraising and alumni engagement plans, and executing against those plans to achieve goals and objectives.

- History of securing six and seven-figure gifts or more, including cultivation through solicitation and stewardship, as well as experience working with annual giving strategies for grooming the next generation of annual leadership and major gift donors.

- Proven ability to develop, balance, and coordinate donor bases on a national and international scale.

- Demonstrated ability in planning and executing strategic communications to complement advancement initiatives.

- Experience identifying, nurturing, and motivating trustees and other volunteer leaders, and a sophisticated understanding of their role in building an effective advancement network.

- Skill at goal setting and measuring success, and agility in addressing alternate program directions to meet goals when necessary.

- The ability to extract and analyze data to make effective, efficient decisions about prospect/constituency engagement strategy and process.
