Director of Development and Communications

Who we are:

Pet Community Center is a nonprofit working to end pet homelessness and keep pets happy, healthy and with their families through accessible spay/neuter and preventive veterinary care.  We believe that all people love their pets and will do what’s best for them when given the opportunity.

We are looking for a compassionate individual who shares that belief and is motivated by serving underserved people and their pets.

Who we need:

Pet Community Center is seeking an experienced fundraising professional for the position of Director of Development and Communications. Candidates should have 3-5 years of nonprofit development experience. Major gifts experience is preferred.

The Director of Development and Communications will lead the planning and implementation of the annual fundraising plan and will oversee communications activities.

Primary responsibilities include:

+ Grow the major gifts from $120,000 to $200,000 in the short term, and create a 3-year plan to build a robust major giving program.

+ Oversee annual fundraising plan ($600,000, including major gifts, in 2018) and create a 3-year growth plan.

+ Under the leadership of the CEO and board of directors, support an 18-month capital campaign.

+ Develop a planned giving program to launch in 2019.

+ Support and guide the board of directors and the fundraising and marketing sub-committees in fundraising and marketing activities.

+ Share grant writing responsibility.

+ Supervise and support the Development Manager, who is responsible for events, database, online giving, direct mail and volunteers.

You might be the person we are looking for if:

+ The idea of joining a rapidly growing organization with an entrepreneurial spirit excites you.

+ You’re a strategist with a proven track record of planning and achieving goals.  If you were to go to the Escape Game, you’d be the one that everyone would follow – and you’d be sure to get everyone out before the deadline!

+ You’re a great communicator, an even better listener, and you love meeting new people and keeping in touch with old friends.  Your thoughtfulness and curiosity about what motivates other people makes them feel special and appreciated.  You might have an entire drawer full of note cards for various occasions (or some other mechanism for letting others know you’re thinking about them).

Pet Community Center offers competitive salary and benefits, including medical, dental and vision insurance, generous paid time off, discounted veterinary care,
