Two of the more important sources of fundraising for organizations are major gifts and planned giving. These jobs are usually headed by separate individuals but this is not the case with our latest featured nonprofit job.

This individual is responsible for developing and implementing a major and planned gifts development plan, building a high-performing team, to achieve fundraising goals, managing a portfolio of donors, and serving as the primary liaison with financial advisors, attorneys, and other partners in the promotion and acquisition of gifts.

Applicants should also have at least a Bachelor's Degree and a minimum of five years experience in planned giving, major giving, or related financial planning work.
