Job Summary:

As part of CARE’s Mid-Level Giving team, the Associate Director of Development (ADOD) manages a portfolio of individual supporters investing between $1,000 and $9,999 annually. As a member of the national Individual Giving team, the Associate Director of Development reports to the Director of Mid-Level Giving and will help develop and implement a comprehensive donor strategy that includes plans for cultivation, stewardship, and solicitation for CARE’s President’s Circle supporters.

This passionate and enthusiastic fundraiser will manage a personal portfolio and will be responsible for developing and implementing cultivation, solicitation and stewardship strategies for his/her portfolio of donors. The ADOD will also seek to engage lapsed donors through integrated strategies with the Mid-Level team. The ADOD is expected to maintain an active schedule of personal interactions with donors including Zoom calls, phone calls, personal visits (when appropriate), in order to build relationships and solicit donors. In addition, the ADOD should be conversant in Planned Giving and other giving vehicles (e.g. donor-advised funds, stocks) to provide Mid-Level donors with as broad an array of resource engagements with CARE as possible.

Approximately 500-750 of these donors will be managed through personal, one-on-one cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship. The management of the remainder of the portfolio will be implemented via a team-wide strategy designed to provide one-to-many communications that feel personalized to the donors.
    • Responsible for building relationships with mid-level donors via Zoom meetings, phone calls, personalized email communications, ongoing written contact, one-on-one meetings, and events, if appropriate. Some travel nationally may be required for donor meetings and events.
