The Development department raises private funds from individuals, foundations, and corporations to support the Library’s general operations as well as specific projects; these funds supplement the public support the Library receives from the City, State, and federal government. The Major Gifts Team is one part of this effort and works closely with other teams in the department and with other Library constituents.
The Library is seeking a dynamic and experienced development professional to significantly increase revenue from individuals. Reporting to the Senior Director of Development, the Director of Individual Giving leads the creation and implementation of a comprehensive strategy for building and sustaining an expanded Conservator and President’s Council patron program, with gifts ranging from $5k to $250k, at least.
The Director of Individual Giving is charged with identifying, securing and stewarding Annual, Education, and Restricted Funds from individuals, family foundations, and business executives, while laying the groundwork for future expanded support.
