This executive search is conducted by Nelson/Kraft & Associates on behalf of HOPE International Development Agency
HOPE International Development Agency is searching for a compassionate and dedicated fundraising professional to join their team as Director of Development.
As the Director of Development you will grow the capacity of HOPE to reach people facing extreme poverty. Directly, and with a team you build, you will secure funding from multiple sources, maintain and grow support from the general public, and secure new funding streams for HOPE’s overseas development programs in Africa, Asia, and the Americas. With vision and tenacity, you and your team will establish strategy and plans that leverage major gifts, annual gifts, special events, and new opportunities to grow the organization. Through your work, you will strengthen HOPE’s individual, foundation, private, and corporate supporters by designing and implementing programs to identify, solicit, and cultivate potential donors.
If you are an accomplished fundraiser, motivated by bringing greater equality to those marginalized and a deep care for people, we would love to hear from you!
Founded in 1975 in response to a famine ravaging Ethiopia, a group of committed families - deeply compassionate and dedicated - gathered around a kitchen table to take action. With love and Christ’s tangible compassion, they faced extreme need head on. They had one goal: help people. Today, that singular focus remains our firm foundation.
HOPE projects focus on sustainable development and demonstrate real community impact as we work in the hardest to reach locations around the world.
