SCOPE AND PURPOSE OF ROLE
The Department of Institutional Development at El Museo del Barrio raises funds from private sources to support the mission of the museum. The Major Gifts Manager is a new position for the museum, signaling an emergent priority to build and sustain a community of major donors. The Manager will identify, cultivate, solicit, and steward a portfolio of prospective and current major donors. The successful candidate will develop a portfolio of donors giving at various levels, toward building a robust community of those giving $5,000 and more. The Manager will engage donors and prospects personally through meetings and phone, events, tours, and more and will enjoy a fair amount of latitude in creating new opportunities for engagement. The Manager will write proposals, reports, cultivation, and solicitation letters. She/he will research donors and input donor information into the database. This is a great opportunity for someone with an entrepreneurial approach and who is eager to work directly with donors. The incumbent will report to the Director of Institutional Advancement.
