The Fund for American Studies offers transformational programs that teach the principles of limited government, free-market economics and honorable leadership to students and young professionals. TFAS programs inspire these future leaders to make a difference in their communities and throughout the world by upholding the values essential to the preservation and success of a free society.
The Major Gift Officer, a new role within the organization, will be responsible for developing strategy and managing a portfolio of current donors and prospects to The Fund for American Studies and the Foundation for Teaching Economics, its affiliate. The assigned portfolio will cover the Western Region of the United States. This position reports to the Vice President of Development.
The ideal candidate for this role is an aggressive fundraiser who is self-motivated and comfortable working in a metrics-based fundraising team. Under a realigned development strategy, this role will step into a growing development team focused on rapid expansion of resources and capabilities. The Major Gift Officer will join two other frontline fundraisers focused on current major gift donors and campaign prospects, with new prospects being moved up in the pipeline from a re-envisioned mid-level giving program. Candidates should have a demonstrated history of building relationships and soliciting donors.
TFAS will consider candidates based in Washington, DC or a virtual office (preferably but not necessarily based in the western US). If based in a virtual office, prior history of successful virtual office work is preferred.
