Headlands Center for the Arts is a multidisciplinary, international arts center dedicated to supporting artists; the creative process; and the development of new, innovative ideas and artwork. Where we are is as important as what we do. Our campus comprises a cluster of artist-rehabilitated military buildings, just north of the Golden Gate Bridge at historic Fort Barry in the Marin Headlands, a part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.
Headlands provides an unparalleled environment for the creative process and the development of new work and ideas. Through a range of programs for artists and the public, we offer opportunities for reflection, dialogue, and exchange that build understanding and appreciation for the role of art in society.
Headlands’ Development Department strategizes the organization’s fundraising efforts alongside the Executive Director (ED), the Board of Directors, and the full staff with the goal of raising contributions to support Headlands’ programs. Headlands is at a pivotal moment in its trajectory; the organization will celebrate its 40th anniversary as an organization in 2022 and is in the silent phase of a significant capital campaign supporting its programs and campus. The organization’s fundraising goals and focus continue to expand as Headlands looks to deepen its impact. This expansion requires that we approach our work with strategy, flexibility, and the understanding that our duties and responsibilities are unique to the Development Department.

An early point of contact for current and prospective donors, the DCM will play a crucial role in the campaign’s donor cultivation and stewardship cycles; they should be a warm, clear, and efficient communicator and a proactive connector and relationship-builder. The DCM will report to the Senior Manager, Major Gifts, and will support the Development and Executive teams.
