Welcomes returning citizens
Are you interested in advancing racial and economic justice in the Philadelphia region? Are you passionate about inspiring people to support the work of movement builders and grassroots activists? Are you an experienced fundraiser, organizer, or project manager who’s always striving to meet that next ambitious goal? Are you skilled at connecting with people and getting them involved?
The director of resource development will work with the executive director and development committee of the board to create and implement all aspects of the annual development plan, including all fundraising efforts, planning and executing our annual gala and other special events, and producing compelling and concise communications materials. The position reports to the executive director and works closely with volunteer committees and the board of directors.
The ideal candidate will be a generalist with respect to development and a strategist with strong project management skills. While they may engage in individual and major gift solicitation directly, commensurate with experience, they will primarily be responsible for driving our entire development program and supporting the executive director, members of the board and other volunteers in making fundraising asks. We prefer candidates with fundraising experience (paid or volunteer) but are also open to candidates with organizing or project management skills and who understand the relational and intentional aspects of fundraising.
Skills and experience
While no candidate will possess every single desired skill or personal attribute, successful candidates will possess many of them. Even if you aren’t sure you have them but are excited about the position, we encourage you to apply.
Bread & Roses is committed to affirmative action and strongly encourages people of color, women, LGBTQ, elderly candidates and candidates with disabilities to apply.
Bread & Roses Community Fund believes in change, not charity. We organize donors to give at all levels to support community-based groups in building movements for racial and economic justice. Since 1977, Bread & Roses has distributed more than $10 million in grants and provided thousands of hours of leadership development and other technical assistance programming to hundreds of community-based groups fighting for better schools, good jobs, fewer prisons, quality healthcare, a safe environment, and much more.
