On behalf of our client Catholic Community Foundation (CCF) of Minnesota, CohenTaylor is pleased to announce an executive search for their next Vice President of Development and Donor Engagement!
Most crucial community nonprofit institutions work hard to maintain operating funds so that they can effectively carry out their stated mission. While contributed funds flow in from a variety of avenues, one steady source in our community is through donor advised and endowed funds at the Catholic Community Foundation.
The Catholic Community Foundation (CCF) collects, grows and distributes funds on behalf of its individual and institutional donors. Their gifts and unrestricted dollars of The Legacy Fund sustain many of the programs that serve our communities. While all grantees are nonprofits whose missions align with Catholic social teaching, the Foundation serves many secular groups and organizations in addition to those with faith-based missions.
The CEO of CCF is looking for candidates who might consider joining the team as the next Vice President of Development and Donor Engagement. It is an executive-level role and manages a team of development and marketing professionals responsible for: cultivating and stewarding relationships with existing individual donors and institutional partners, cultivating relationships with prospective donors and their professional advisers to establish new funds, and communicating and marketing the vision and value proposition of CCF to the wider community.
The ideal candidate is a seasoned professional with experience in fund development (major/planned gift solicitation), board/volunteer engagement and staff leadership and development. Candidates may come from traditional nonprofit roles and/or financial services sales. CCF is looking for someone who understands the art and science of a strategic development program to continue on a successful history of asset development. Candidates must be able to build authentic relationships and a donor service culture that reflects both donor intent and donors’ passion for mission and social values of the Catholic Church. A bachelor’s degree is required, while a master’s, law or business administration degree is preferred.
