The Sr. Manager, Mid-Level Giving will design and bring to life Rare’s first formal mid-level giving program. This position will manage an existing portfolio of approximately 50 mid-level donors (those who give between $500 and $9,999 annually) and strategically increase both the number of donors and the amount of donations over ensuing years. This is a great opportunity for an experienced mid-level leader to put their own stamp on a mid-level giving program. You will be working for an organization that is well-resourced and well-positioned to be successful in this area and that also has supportive executive leadership.
Reporting to the Vice President, Individual Giving & Board Relations, and with the support and collaboration of colleagues in Major Gifts, Development Operations, Research, and Digital Marketing and Communications, the Sr. Manager will lead each aspect of the mid-level program, including developing the structure of the program itself, developing relationships with the donors, working within budget to produce materials for stewardship and acquisition, and meeting annual financial and key performance goals.
The Sr. Manager must be capable of inspiring support from a variety of constituent groups, is highly organized, has strong communication and listening skills, is emotionally intelligent, and driven to succeed.
