Director of Fundraising Partnerships


Lead and inspire sustainable growth for one of the city’s most recognized non-profits.


At Big Sisters we know that mentoring matters!  We are lucky enough to see the results it creates year over year in our organization. Not all girls have access to a mentor; we exist to make sure that they do.  Our organization is committed to making a difference in the lives of young girls who may be facing challenges like isolation, poverty, abuse, social anxiety, or low self-esteem. At Big Sisters we believe that every person has limitless potential and individual strengths. It is our mission to have this potential realized in everyone – from the Little Sisters who haven’t yet seen what they are capable of, to our mentors, volunteers and staff.


If this inspires you and you share our vision, we would love to hear from you.  We are currently seeking a motivated leader to strengthen and enrich our fundraising initiatives as the Director of Fundraising Partnerships.  If you want to make a lasting difference in the lives of young girls, this role is for you.
