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.
New Door Ventures is a safe space for all, regardless of race, gender, sexuality, country of origin, religion, or ability.

Who we are We’re a full-service creative agency, that helps some of the world’s biggest brands communicate complex ideas effectively. We specialize in a mix of strategy and storytelling combined with visual execution. We apply our services to presentations, branding, messaging, thought leadership, live events and a lot more. Our clients include early-stage startups and Fortune 500 firms, and we are equally comfortable working with both. We’re located in San Jose next to Santana Row, in the heart of Silicon Valley. Job description We're looking for a key member of our fast-growing team that will work collaboratively with our team of content, strategy, project management, and design resources in developing narrative and visual concept ideas of our projects, which includes: Core Story, presentation strategy/flow, thought leadership communication, brand messaging, and all deliverables that touch our client's audience. This quick-thinking, strategic, and creative writer, has the unique skills to formulate and organize high-level, often technical, ideas and concepts into a simple structure and creative story flow, through their extremely talented writing skills and visual concepting abilities. The right candidate will be very comfortable working directly with clients, often in a facilitation role with the executive management and leaders of companies, we work with, as well as having natural collaborative chemistry with our entire team. Our single biggest strength is the way we collaborate, whether it’s the research we do to understand our client’s world—often in great technical depth—or the way we communicate face-to-face. Our reputation is built on our enthusiasm to learn something new with each project, whether it’s the latest technology in Enterprise SAS, A.I., oncology, or clean energy. Ideally, you’ll share our passion. What to expect We’ve been in operation for over five years but have gone to great lengths to keep our core management small, with dedicated resources that allow us to scale for larger projects. This makes team chemistry a high priority: personalities matter as much as skills, no one is interchangeable, and the experience of working together is as important as the result. More specifically, working at Creative Blue comes down to three key experiences: Joining us for client meetings, either in-person or remotely from our office Internal working sessions in our office highly collaborative, yet comfortable getting work completed independently Each is an essential part of how we work, and the balance evolves over time. An ideal candidate will be equally prepared for all three. Responsibilities Candidates are expected to be autonomous but flexible; responsibilities will range from totally self-initiated creativity to strict guidelines that need to be followed. In other words, be prepared to work as a high-level writer/communication strategist in one moment, then think like an art director in the next. This position will be directly responsible for collaboratively formulating ideas with the entire team and then direct execution of the writing and creative deliverables. Skills and traits Experienced creative writer/storyteller Several years of agency experience. This is a leadership position on our team and requires the right balance of experience, credibility, confidence, and intelligence, all with a humble, collaborative attitude. Someone with rockstar ideas, a confident, creative problem solver. Strong communication skills. You should be good at articulating ideas and explaining your thoughts and thrive on incorporating others' ideas. Eager to collaborate with art directors, writers, developers and animators on a range of projects. A flexible sense of ownership over a project. You should be able to tell the difference between the details worth fighting for and the work worth delegating to someone else. You must be located in or near San Jose and able to be at our offices when necessary. IMPORTANT TO BE CONSIDERED FOR THIS ROLE: 1) You must provide a writing sample (at least 2-5 paragraphs) of a narrative you have developed for a technology company, where you have taken complex ideas and formulated them into an easily understood and unique value proposition in a creative story structure to emotionally connect with an audience. And, include what you identified as the 3 key takeaway points being highlighted in the sample, and why the points matter to the audience. 2) Provide an example(s) where you have facilitated C-level executives of a Fortune 500 company in a working session to extract key information to formulate a value or brand proposition. How did you gain consensus with the client(s) to agree on the pillars?
