St. Louis Public Radio, the region's NPR member station, is looking for a practiced fundraising leader to serve as our next Associate Development Director for Membership. This person will manage all membership operations and non-major gift fundraising initiatives for more than 26,000 donors.
That means we're looking for a relationship builder in every sense of the phrase. Someone who is an exemplary communicator, especially considering communications involving the cultivation, solicitation and stewardship of donors, would be well-suited for this position. The Associate Development Director for Membership should also have demonstrated success in managing a dynamic and diverse staff, and be an enthusiastic facilitator and collaborator.
With supervision and support from the Development Director, the Associate Director will manage and develop fundraising staff, ensuring they are properly supported and have the tools they need to do their jobs effectively. We're seeking out a leader who is committed to equity and an inclusive working environment, and who can clearly articulate their vision of what that looks like in nonprofit fundraising and/or public media.
