About the Organization:
80,000 youth ages 16-24 in the San Francisco Bay Area are disconnected from employment and education. Without connecting to school and work, these young people are at high risk to be poor, unemployed, homeless, or incarcerated throughout their adult lives. All youth should have the opportunity to transition to a fulfilling, economically sustainable adulthood. At New Door Ventures, we believe youth are assets. To connect young people to paid jobs and support, we offer two core programs: Employment, and Education. Our Development Department is responsible for all fundraising in support of these programs and general and administrative expenses.
About the Development Department:
The Development and Marketing Department is a small, results-oriented team, responsible for all fund development activities related to raising $3.5 million in 2020, as well as organizational communications. The current annual operating budget is approximately $7.1 million of which 63% is contributed from current philanthropy and fundraising campaigns and 37% is revenue from New Door’s two social enterprises. In 2020, the goal for institutional giving (foundations, corporate, and public) is $1.9 million. New Door Ventures is fortunate to have many longstanding, committed institutional giving partners. In 2018, New Door expanded into the East Bay and our program operations in 2020 are now roughly 50/50 on each side of the Bay. It is at this exciting stage of growth into a Bay Area-wide youth development organization that New Door seeks a motivated, experienced Institutional Giving Manager to extend and diversify our core funding base with a focus on foundations, companies and government sources. In 2014, New Door surpassed all goals for its four-year $13 million integrated fundraising campaign raising $14.7 million to purchase a larger facility, expand current programs, and invest in the start-up of new programs and social enterprises.
About the Position:
The Development Manager for Institutional Giving will take strategic leadership and tactical ownership over corporate, foundation, and government funding sources at New Door. She/he will be responsible for writing high-quality and compelling correspondence, letters of inquiry, proposals, and grant reports for all institutional funders. This position requires a strategic thinker with exceptional writing skills, strong project management skills and experience, attention to detail and the capacity to translate program initiatives and impact into targeted funding requests. The Development Manager for Institutional Giving will report directly to the Director of Development and Marketing.
Preferred Qualifications & Skills:
This position is on-site at New Door’s San Francisco office. Organization hours are 9-5:30. Compensation for the role is commensurate with experience, and up to $70K annually.
