Paid Leave for the U.S. (PL+US) is hiring a Development Director (DD) to raise essential funds to support our groundbreaking work to win national high quality paid family and medical leave policy by 2022.
In just four short years, PL+US has won paid leave for nearly 8 million people. We’ve won change at some of the top employers in the country, including Walmart and Starbucks, and we’re taking that momentum into the fight to win national public policy. Paid leave is poised to take off as the next high-profile national issue.
Since our founding, the PL+US team has tripled in size and has cultivated a culture that is bold, curious, real, excellent, and compassionate. We are agile, collaborative problem solvers who are passionate about winning paid leave and we mean it when we say that family comes first, for those we fight alongside and for our own team.
This is a full time position that can be based anywhere in the U.S. with a major airport that has direct flights to San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and New York City.
The Development Director (DD) is an experienced and dynamic development professional who will create and lead PL+US’ annual development plan alongside the Executive Director. The DD is joining PL+US at an exciting inflection point and will play a critical role not only in raising funds for the organization, but also in building the fundraising engine and systems to fuel our campaign en route to winning landmark legislation that will change the lives of millions of people.
The DD is a proactive, strategic, and detail-oriented fundraiser who is ready to leverage their creativity to take our individual and institutional fundraising to the next level. They are equally adept at cultivating powerful donor relationships and developing streamlined donor management systems that will allow us to scope, pursue, and secure donations from a range of supporters at a time of unprecedented opportunity. This is a perfect role for an individual who has learned the ropes and is ready to spread their wings by building out and managing a first-class development shop with a team that’s in it to win.
The DD will report to the Chief Operating Officer and serve as a key thought partner to the Executive Director, PL+US’ lead fundraiser. They will manage a full-time Development and Communications Associate and a part-time Development Associate.
