Director of Development
We are looking for a candidate who believes strongly in Habitat's mission, vision and guiding principles. The ideal candidate will be an excellent communicator and collaborator, willing to jump in and help others generate creative ideas and solutions. Successful applicants will be committed to learning about Habitat and the neighborhoods we serve. We are looking for someone who can navigate easily between digital and offline communications channels, who is organized and able to prioritize competing tasks to achieve our organizational goals.
This position is currently our only fundraising position, which means that the Director of Development will be responsible for both high-level planning and administering daily and weekly fundraising tasks. The Director will report to and work closely with Habitat's Executive Director, who actively participates in our fundraising and communications initiatives.
As Habitat's lead fundraiser, this position must also contribute, integrate, and hold themselves accountable to community-centric fundraising principles and our values of diversity, equity, inclusion and anti-racism.
Traditional fundraising experience is not necessarily required. We view this role as a primary connector between Habitat's network of supporters - donors, volunteers, newsletter subscribers, partners - and the organization. You will join a small but efficient administrative team of colleagues that supports each other and collaborates frequently. We are the largest affordable homebuilder in the region and one of the top producing Habitat affiliates in New York State - but we're also still a bit scrappy. We are continuously refining our systems and processes, and will actively seek your input on how we can improve and grow our organization.
