Director of Public Funding Strategy

Posted on: October 10, 2012

Posted by: Citizen Schools

Description

About Citizen Schools:

Citizen Schools accelerates student learning through an innovative expanded learning time model that is rigorous and evidence-based. We partner with middle schools to provide “apprenticeships” (hands-on projects taught by volunteers from business and civic organizations), academic support and a culture of high expectations. As a result, our students develop the skills, knowledge and beliefs they need to succeed in middle school, advance towards college, and become leaders in their careers and communities. Our goal is to demonstrate that these approaches, taken together, can transform struggling schools.

Citizen Schools currently operates in eight states (California, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina and Texas), serving approximately 5,200 students and engaging 4,200 Citizen Teachers. Building on seventeen years of programming innovation and results, Citizen Schools is in the midst of a strategic plan that will place this model at the center of school transformation. Nationally, Citizen Schools is scaling its Expanded Learning Time (ELT) model to 25 urban middle schools by 2014.

Citizen Schools has been recognized as a national model program by the White House and the U.S. Department of Education, has been named a national winner of Fast Company Magazine’s Social Capitalist Award, and has been chosen by the Skoll Foundation as a winner of the Skoll Social Entrepreneurship Award.

Position Overview:

The Director of Public Funding Strategy will refine and execute a national plan to increase organizational capacity and ability to sustainably secure public funding for its expanded learning time (ELT) program. Throughout the fiscal year, the Director of Public Funding Strategy will work with the national staff and the eight regional Executive Directors to drive each region toward network public funding goals. Furthermore, the Director of Public Funding Strategy will coach and inform regional staff on public funding opportunities and how to disseminate technical assistance on public funding to school and district partners. The Director of Public Funding Strategy will also work with national teams to develop internal tools and metrics for tracking and evaluating public funding opportunities, such as an assessment of the return on investment.

The Director of Public Funding Strategy will work with Citizen Schools Leadership Team to develop a strategy for leveraging supporters and the national movement around expanded learning time as a school reform strategy to create or favorably modify public funding and overall climate for ELT in the next 3-5 years. The Director of Public Funding Strategy will work closely with the Executive Director of Public Policy and Communications and the Field Management Team, members of the leadership team, and other national and regional staff to meet goals for Citizen Schools’ public funding strategy.

The organization has grown public funding from $2 million to $8 million per year over the last six years, and now covers approximately 70 percent of direct costs of the program with these funds. The goal in the next five years is to double the number of students served while maintaining or modestly increasing our public revenue per student through a strategy that includes influencing public policy, thought leadership to influence trends in public funding, and district-specific strategies to secure additional public funding for the organization as a leading education reform solution for school districts.

his position reports directly to the Executive Director of Public Policy and Communications. The location is flexible, but preferably in Boston or Washington DC. This position is available for an immediate start.

Responsibilities Include:

VP of Development

Posted on: September 24, 2012

Posted by: EastWest Institute

Description

Job Title: Vice President of Development

Reports to: President & Chief Executive Officer

Location: New York, NY

The EastWest Institute (EWI) is a leading international policy organization founded in 1980 to focus on collaborative and practical responses to the most critical threats to global peace and stability. EWI is known for its action bias and results-driven mandate, its fierce independence and recognized track record of building trust and fostering collaborative teams which generate practical solutions.

JOB SUMMARY

The EWI Board of Directors has determined to take EWI from an $8 million a year institution to a $10-12 million one over the course of the next two years. This position is the key officer responsible for raising the annual revenue at this accelerated level, in partnership with the CEO and the Institutional Advancement Committee of the Board of Directors. This position is responsible for all fundraising and development activities including the annual Chairman’s Recognition Dinner. A small professional development staff based in New York is supplemented by assistance from permanent public affairs and programmatic staffs based in New York, Brussels, Washington and Moscow.

The position requires demonstrated communication and marketing skills, a passion for international issues and a proven set of management and follow-up skills. A demonstrated track record of achieving concrete accomplishment and meeting goals, including the ability to ‘close’ deals is required. Success will depend upon the ability to develop and maintain close working relationships with all members of the EWI Board and existing donor community, as well as forging new relationships that result in the expansion of EWI’s pool of funders, particularly corporate and family foundations around the world.

EWI is a dynamic organization engaged in high level policy and “action-oriented’ problem solving on critical security issues among the major nations and businesses of the world. The October 2012 launching of our Economic Security Initiative will provide enormous opportunity for bringing an entirely new set of donors into EWI, much as our expanding into China and creating a cybersecurity initiative were able to do in past years. The recent association established with the 20-20 Investment Association (formerly the Russell 20-20) gives EWI institutional partnership with large investment firms controlling some $8 trillion of assets. How EWI manages such relationships is vital to our growth and is a key element of what is expected from the VP of Development’s leadership.

The VP of Development is a member of the Lead Team (management) and as such has a strong institution-wide role with respect to strategy and policy, and a strong voice in helping shape how EWI communicates and meets expectations of existing and potential major sponsors.

The VP of Development needs to have a high energy level, the ability to quickly absorb complex issues and motivate colleagues and others in the network, as well as an impressive work ethic.

The VP of Development will expand and diversify EWI’s donor base/pipeline by initiating contacts, mentoring and otherwise working closely with other team members to secure funding for new initiatives.

It is expected that the amount raised by EWI will increase in future years by at least 15 to 20% per year as the VP of Development systematically and effectively strengthens the organization’s overall fundraising capacity.

Responsibilities:

  • Support and partner with the CEO and board members on all major fundraising initiatives
  • Collaborate with the Chief of Staff (COS) to develop and implement EWI’s financial strategy
  • Actively work with the CEO and others to develop and implement a comprehensive development strategy to include corporate, foundation, government grants, etc.
  • Have primary responsibility for development and execution of all proposals; write and archive all proposals with a long-term relationship-management approach
  • Oversee research funding sources and trends, with foresight, to help position EWI ahead of major funding changes or trends
  • Monitor all donor information; provide and present statistical analysis to the board, CEO and COS
  • Develop and implement a stewardship program aimed at cultivating deeper ties with donors
  • Monitor and report regularly on the progress of the development program
  • Identify, develop and mentor the development team

Qualifications:

  • 10-plus years of professional experience in a nonprofit organization; demonstrated success in a development function (managing and forging relationships with multiple donor sources) or substantial marketing and sales experience with policy or non-profit additional experience.
  • Tangible experience of having expanded and cultivated existing donor relationships over time and bringing in new donors.
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and oral; ability to influence and engage a wide range of donors and build long-term relationships
  • A professional and resourceful style; Flexible and adaptable style; a leader who can positively impact both strategic and tactical fundraising initiatives
  • Ability to work both independently without close oversight, but also a team player who will productively engage with others at varying levels of seniority within and outside EWI
  • Bachelor’s degree required, Master’s preferred
  • High energy and passion for EWI’s mission is essential
  • Ability to construct, articulate and implement annual strategic development plan
  • Strong organizational and time management skills with exceptional attention to detail
  • Customer focus
  • Cultural sensitivity and the ability to work in an international environment.
  • Ability to travel internationally.

EWI hires staff without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, age, gender, sexual orientation, marital status or disability.
