Under the direction of the Director of Advancement, the Individual Giving Manager is responsible for helping the organization reach its fundraising goals by driving efforts to secure gifts – with a particular focus at the level of $2,500+, primarily from individuals and family foundations. At the same time, the Individual Giving Manager lays the groundwork for significant future growth in this area by deepening partnerships with existing donors and developing new donor relationships. In collaboration with the Director of Advancement and members of the board Development Committee, the Individual Giving Manager will identify, cultivate, solicit and steward prospects with a giving capacity of $5,000+, develop strategies for candidates for the board of directors, and help build a pipeline of prospects for endowment giving and planned gifts. The Individual Giving Manager stewards and cultivates a portfolio of donors and prospects and takes responsibility for meeting an ambitious annual revenue target for this area. As the organization is in a season of growth, with a goal to increase our annual operating budget to a minimum of $5M by FY26/27, the Individual Giving Manager is responsible for securing $1M in revenue annually. The position also assists with special events, including conception, planning and implementing strategic donor cultivation events and assisting with fundraising and logistics for the annual gala and other events as needed.
