KIPP Philadelphia Public Schools (KPPS) is hiring a Managing Director of Development (MDOD) to grow and lead fundraising during an exciting new phase in KPPS history. As KPPS welcomes a new CEO, the MDOD will play a critical role in telling the KPPS story and designing a fundraising strategy to help the organization reach new heights. The role will be responsible for raising $4M annually with a primary focus on 1) setting a comprehensive, donor-centric fundraising plan that strategically leverages the new CEO, and 2) shepherding a portfolio of individual/major gift donors through a relationship management process. The MDOD will also grow and lead the fundraising team, ensuring all activities are systematic and aligned with the annual development plan.

The MDOD will work very closely with the new CEO to help manage a portfolio of key funders and will drive all preparation for and follow-up from CEO-led solicitations.

The MDOD will report directly to the CEO and will lead a two-person development team (Grants Manager and Development Associate), with the potential for additional future departmental growth. The MDOD will serve as a key liaison with the KPPS Board of Trustees.
