Is this you?

A leader, mentor, consensus-builder, strategic thinker with a bias to action and implementation; this would be how peers and colleagues describe you. You have a sense of humour, are happy and upbeat and, most of all, love to be around like-minded, capable individuals. You don’t mind rolling up your sleeves and are entrepreneurial-minded.

Have you managed and mentored philanthropy teams across the spectrum of revenue streams (major gifts, foundations, corporate partnerships, planned giving, community engagement, direct marketing and monthly giving)? You have been accountable for managing the timely implementation of fundraising programs and initiatives and ultimately the numbers.  You have a proven track record in your ability to develop meaningful relationships and to successfully integrate donor interests with organizational priorities. You are known as a consummate professional, able to tactfully manage complex situations and to motivate and inspire colleagues and volunteers. You are resilient and comfortable with ambiguity.
