Job Description for Director of Development, Non-Profit Organization

In a non-profit organization, the director of development (or development director) is responsible for ensuring that the organization has necessary funding to function. This means the director of development creates and implements a fundraising plan detailing how the organization can obtain financial support; often, the plan identifies sources such as individual investors, grants, charitable events, marketing opportunities, and corporate investors. The fundraising plan also contains strategies to successfully build a large donor base and ensure effective fundraising. The director of development then reports this plan to the other senior leadership and the organization’s board of directors. At a small nonprofit organization, the director of development may be required to personally solicit donors, be responsible for the organization’s branding, and play a large role in the organization’s public relations strategies. At a large nonprofit organization, the director of development most likely oversees a development team which they would be responsible for staffing and maintaining.
