Growth Development Manager (Fundraiser), Full-Time
Our growing nonprofit seeks a Growth Development Manager who is enthusiastic about building a fundraising community from an early stage. SWP is committed to approaching fundraising from a community-centric lens and bringing racial equity into all partnerships and conversations. An ideal candidate views this role from a servant leadership perspective, teaching and bringing other leaders and team members along as a critical part of the practice.

SWP has steadily grown private and public philanthropic revenue over the last five years. As SWP seeks to scale its work and advance its mission, the new full-time Growth Development Manager will support strategic planning and lead daily implementation of a community-centric fundraising program including annual fund, major and planned giving, institutional and government support, and special events including Rising Voices, our annual end-of-year student celebration that attracts more than 500 attendees each year.

The Growth Development Manager will work to ensure that community members such as SWP alumni, donors, parents, and school partners have access to volunteer opportunities and ways to provide in-kind donations. We fully recognize that not all gifts are monetary and want to encourage family engagement without creating a barrier to access.
