Director of Advancement, Pendle Hill
Posted by Pendle Hill on October 19, 2021
GENERAL SUMMARY: The Director of Advancement (DOA) embodies an appreciation for the Pendle Hill community, fostering relationships and ongoing engagement with its close-in and broader constituencies, thereby strengthening philanthropic support for Pendle Hill.
The DOA focuses 50% of their time on face-to-face visits in order to 1) increase financial support from the top 20% of Pendle Hill’s donor pyramid, and 2) deepen engagement with prospective/emerging members into the top 20% of the donor pyramid. The movement of engagement from identification -> cultivation -> solicitation –
> stewardship is key. The remaining work time is focused on in-office duties, such as donor communications, team supervision/support, and other duties related to supporting the community and the Advancement department.
One over-arching responsibility is to facilitate and implement an advancement office that is designed to be a primary point of interaction and engagement with Pendle Hill’s donors. All internal operations will be designed to either directly or indirectly fulfill this primary purpose through relationship building, annual fund appeals, foundation cultivation, mini-campaigns for special projects (e.g. building improvements), increasing planned giving, and developing yearly plans for strengthening endowment. To this end, the Director of Advancement is one of Pendle Hill’s primary representatives and a spokesperson relating to Pendle Hill’s many external constituents.
