The Guthrie Theater is an esteemed center for theater performance that seeks to illuminate our common humanity and transform our world through the power of live theater. Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and firmly rooted in the community since 1963, the Guthrie is dedicated to producing classic and contemporary works with excellence, cultivating artists and inspiring the next generation of theatergoers. Considered the flagship resident theater in the U.S., the Guthrie is committed to the people of Minnesota and influences the field as a leading 21st-century arts organization.

The Guthrie is seeking a Campaign Director to organize, manage, and execute a vigorous, coherent and well-planned campaign likely to total $80M – of which $28.5M has already been raised. Working in tandem with the organization’s leadership and development team, this Campaign Director will be both internally and externally focused and will bring strong strategic and planning skills as well as the ability to cultivate and solicit gifts from the top echelon of potential donors.

This Campaign Director has the exciting opportunity to participate in designing a campaign program that complements the organization’s significant annual contributed income goals, positioning the Guthrie to remain vital and vibrant, expand its artistic initiatives, and enhance the patron experience when it is safe to do so.
