As Chief Development Officer (CDO), your role will be to plan and execute a fundraising strategy that increases IINE’s private philanthropic support from our current level of $2M per year to $3M+ annually within the next three years. You will manage a small team, which you will have the opportunity to expand as revenue increases.

IINE has grown fundraising from $600K to $2M in the past three years, largely through successful signature events and increases in private foundation giving. As CDO, you will lead our effort to engage a greater number of supporters across the spectrum of philanthropic giving, including increasing individual giving, identifying and cultivating new institutional supporters, and building deeper relationships with corporate funders.

Reporting to the President and CEO, you will build on your consistent record of success by introducing and implementing methodologies and systems that can build upon our strong foundation for fundraising. You must enjoy and thrive on connecting with, cultivating, and generating support from donors. An ability to build relationships with high net worth individual donors and successfully solicit their support is a critical part of the Chief Development Officer’s role at IINE.

While your primary focus will be on the generation of resources to operate and grow the organization, you will also serve as a member of our Executive Team and participate in the leadership of the organization as a whole.
