Our Mission is to bring the most proven, evidence-based addiction treatment services to those with no assets, no money, no insurance, and no ability to get the help that they need. We serve a very visible, but ignored, economically depraved street population who needs help more than anyone with a substance use disorder.
We are entirely donor supported, due to the fact that our clients cannot pay, and we need an experienced, "instant-on" self-starter who can help us to help to acquire the donated capital to exponentially grow our reach. We need a professional with contacts into the high-net-worth world of philanthropists and foundations who can take our unique mission to those who can help put this service on the map in a big way.
The is a hands-on position that will call for the quick design and execution of fundraising strategies of all types (grants, campaigns, events, sponsorships, but focusing on large private donations) that yield results quickly and without unnecessary gestation periods (we know that development requires relationship building and we are not referring to the necessary steps of building an audience). The Director will oversee all aspects of yet-to-be-designed fundraising programs as well as create fundraising goals and solicit funds to meet these goals. He or she will develop new donor bases and organize initiatives to solicit funding.
This important and highly visible position requires a bachelor's degree and at least 5 years of experience in the field in addition to a familiarity with a variety of the field's concepts, practices, and procedures. We will be relying on your extensive experience and judgment to plan and accomplish goals and you'll be performing a variety of tasks including, eventually, leading and directing the work of others. A wide degree of creativity and latitude is expected.
In order to be considered, we will need for you to take a Culture Index Survey that takes 8 minutes (mandatory): http://www.cindexinc.com/c/584F35
Telecommuting is allowed.
Additional Salary Information: Old-timers who can garner contributions will be worth much more to us than beginners, who we'd prefer didn't apply for this specific opening (there will be others down the road)
We are an outpatient addiction treatment center that provides free services to those who need it the most: the homeless, the street population that moves from shelter to shelter, and those on the margins of survival who are uninsured and invisible to the health care industry.
