Asia Society, a prestigious, global, educational and cultural non-profit was founded on the tenacious belief that genuine understanding across cultures unlocks the potential for a peaceful and sustainable world. Our New York headquarters on Park Avenue in NYC, coordinates work in our 13 Centers throughout the world where we’re working to galvanize people who see themselves as members of our global community and recognize that their own success, well-being and happiness are intrinsically linked to those who are different than them.
We are looking for a goal-oriented, self-directed and inspirational individual who resonates with these ideas and will join our leadership team in a critical position to help lead our development team as we inaugurate our new global strategic plan with cutting edge digital tools. This person will report to the Chief Development Officer and work closely with our top leaders in New York and throughout our global network to unlock new opportunities, identify key influencers and supporters and help actualize art, policy and education initiatives that can literally change the world.
The right person is able to think big and know how to build measurable success with an eye on critical details. They need to be able to inspire and lead a young team and are comfortable in a dynamic and fast-moving environment. This person needs to be able to hit the ground running with a Rolodex of contacts, not just in NYC but through the world. They need to know how to quickly build new relationships, steward existing ones and connect dots that others may not see.
The Managing Director of Development backs up the CDO in leading all Development efforts through the Asia Society global organization. This person will also manage their own portfolio of major gifts and will be responsible for the identification, cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship of individual prospects at the $15,000-$25,000 and-above level. The individual will help build a strong base of individual donors to support the ambitious growth of the organization over the next five years of the strategic plan.
