Think of Us (TOU) operates as an R+D lab for child welfare. We take on strategic projects with the goal of causing “good trouble” and, ultimately, driving concrete, structural changes in policy, practice, resource flows, power dynamics, relationships and mental models. Our ultimate goal is to integrate Lived Experience at every level, ensuring everyone touched by the system has the conditions they need to Heal, Develop and Thrive.
We work across the ecosystem of current and former foster youth, child welfare workers, philanthropists and policymakers to Spark, Support and Drive to systematically center lived experience touched by the system.
Examples of what this looks like include:
Note: Most of our roles are fully remote. A select few are based in DC or LA, which will be specified in the job description if applicable.
The Director of Development will serve as the department lead with responsibility for raising philanthropic funds and cultivating key relationships. You will consistently deliver world-class output and will meet (and exceed!) revenue targets consistently, year over year. While you have a knack for big picture thinking, you are an executor at heart with a knack for designing processes, building tools, and getting things done.
We are entering 2022 with an annual fundraising goal of $6M - and over $2M already committed! This role will be responsible for executing the annual development plan, launching a “Think Tank,” strengthening our Development Operations, working with the Comms team to expand our presence and, most importantly, work with the CEO and Managing Partner to raise funds across individual and institutional donors. Preferred candidates will be self-motivated, deadline-driven multitaskers.
$90,000 - $100,000 - with flexibility based on experience
