The Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with Children’s Law Center in the search for a Development Manager.
The Development Manager will join an organization with a life-changing mission, a strong and well-deserved reputation for getting results, an award-winning workplace culture, and colleagues who value tenacity, teamwork, an outcome-focused orientation, and laughter. This position is great for someone who thrives in bringing order and managing projects in a fast-paced environment for an organization with incredible impact.
Many donors are searching for organizations that have great impact at a local level—particularly when the national dialogue can frustrate and fatigue many into thinking that their gift won’t change lives. Children’s Law Center has had extraordinary impact on the lives of the most vulnerable kids in DC—right in the shadow of the nation’s Capitol. The organization has grown steadily over 21 years from 3 lawyers to more than 100 staff and hundreds of pro bono attorneys. It reaches more than 5,000 children and families each year through direct legal services and multiplies this impact by advocating for city-wide solutions that benefit all children.
Children’s Law Center’s board and staff are committed to long-term effective advocacy for the children and families of the District; and to growing the philanthropic relationships to sustain and expand our reach. The Development Manager will play a key role in expanding the donor base, helping the rapidly evolving major gifts program, and coordinating donor cultivation, retention, and stewardship movements. Well-positioned as a leading local nonprofit organization, Children’s Law Center offers an excellent opportunity for a development professional with extraordinary project management skills to help further transform a great organization and directly help thousands of children who are abused or neglected, who aren’t learning in school, or who have health problems that can’t be solved by medicine alone.
The position requires at least four years of development experience. A four-year college degree is preferred. All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and résumé.
