Do you have a passion for making a positive impact on people’s lives and a background in social justice fundraising? Are you a strategic leader when it comes to corporate, government, and foundation fundraising and development? Do you excel at connecting with media representatives and donors? If so, we have the opportunity for you!

As the Director of Development, you will be responsible for spearheading strategic initiatives outlined in the development plan to achieve fundraising objectives for NNEDV.

You recognize how your own identities show up in the work, and welcome, reflect on, and act on feedback with an eye toward continuous learning about race, ability, and other lines of difference.

  • Oversee the development and execution of education and outreach campaigns to increase NNEDV’s profile and increase the public understanding of the dynamics of domestic violence.
  • Oversee NNEDV’s online presence, including ensuring innovative content is created and branding is consistent across its websites (NNEDV.org, TechSafety.org, and WomensLaw.org), social media platforms, and other online platforms.
  • Build relationships with journalists, developing a strategy for media outreach.
  • Collaborate across NNEDV teams and projects to ensure compliance requirements are in place from public and private funders.
  • Work closely with NNEDV finance and program staff to ensure compliance with financial guidance for federal grants.
  • Meet regularly with program managers and finance staff to develop and monitor project budgets that meet the requirements of each project and/or funding opportunity.
  • Responsible for Fundraising, including all aspects of grant seeking, individual giving, and online fundraising.

  • Relevant communications skills and a demonstrated understanding of an intersectional, survivor-centered, trauma-informed approach.
  • Previous leadership and supervisory experience.
  • Ability to manage cooperative agreements and/or grant awards from government agencies, such as the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) at the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) at DOJ, and/or the Family Violence Prevention and Services Office at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

NNEDV offers a range of programs and initiatives to address the complex causes and far-reaching consequences of domestic violence.
