KEY CANDIDATE QUALIFICATIONS:
The successful candidate will be an experienced, self-motivated, and successful nonprofit fundraising professional with a track record of building and maintaining mutually beneficial relationships with individual donors. She/He/They will have well-honed skills in all critical competencies of individual philanthropy, including new donor identification; donor retention, cultivation, and solicitation; donor appreciation/stewardship; gift processing and acknowledgement; and donor/data management systems. (GLAAD uses Raiser’s Edge.)
This person could come from any number of environments where, major and membership giving are prioritized – higher education, arts/cultural institutions, hospital/health care foundations, social justice, LGBTQ advocacy, etc. – so long as she/he/they have a background as a front-line fundraiser and demonstrate a commitment to the issues surrounding full LGBTQ inclusion and equality.
She/He/They should also be comfortable working in mission-driven nonprofit environment and in close collaboration with people of diverse racial/ethnic, economic, sexual, and gender identities.
This position provides the successful candidate the opportunity to have a direct, tangible, and positive impact on GLAAD’s ability to achieve its goal of full equality and acceptance for all LGBTQ people. While building on legal and policy victories continues to be important, the LGBTQ movement must turn its focus to defending the progress we have achieved for equality and acceptance. The person selected for this post will join a team of committed staff, volunteers, and allies, all of whom share a deep and personal commitment to GLAAD’s mission.
