Firmly rooted in its mission to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place, Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) is a beloved brand with global visibility, an empowering and clear charge, deep grassroots reach, a community-building approach, and event platforms on local, regional, national and international levels. Right now, girls are facing unprecedented challenges such as school closures and the threat of learning loss, disrupted routines and the isolation that comes with social distancing. They are coping with illness or fear of illness with some absorbing the stress of their families’ financial hardships. Girls are also grappling with the issue of racial injustice and coming to understand their part in the future of social justice.
Despite the challenges presented, GSUSA is continuing to prepare girls to take the lead, explore their passions, and make the world a better place for generations to come. The new Director of Major Gifts (DMG) will contribute to building momentum across the movement, and directly generate the resources needed so that girls can walk boldly towards sisterhood, justice, and fairness. The DMG will execute a cohesive individual giving fundraising strategy with a focus on uncovering new areas of support; personally develop and cultivate a portfolio of major donors, initially focusing at the $500-$25K level, while carefully pursuing new and assuming existing relationships with high net worth major donors up to the $1M+ level; and champion strong, mutually-beneficial relationships with local councils to advance the impact of individual giving on behalf of the entire organization.
