Based in Chicago and reporting to the Chief Development Officer at the National Audubon Society, the Vice President of Development, Upper Central & Mississippi Flyways, will be charged with increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of fundraising in the Upper Central & Mississippi Flyways, including the Rockies & Gillmor Sanctuary in Utah, Nebraska, the Dakotas, Great Lakes & Grange, Minnesota & Riverlands, and Arkansas, with a focus on managing a team of fundraisers who are responsible for securing funds for state programs, regional flyway initiatives and national programs aligned with the strategic plan. As a senior leader on the National Development team, s/he will carry a portfolio of qualified major gift donors and prospects in the region; will direct the strategy and fundraising staff within the Flyways; and will partner with state, regional, and national executives to maximize Audubon’s impact with existing and potential donors.
The successful candidate will be an entrepreneurial, results-driven, senior development professional with success in leading development teams to success and closing six-figure+ gifts. This is a new and exciting opportunity to help influence and create value for an organization-wide fundraising initiative and act as a major contributor to one of the nation’s oldest and well-known leaders in the conservation arena. The Vice President will need to have a flexible approach to work, with some evenings and weekends being required, as well as a willingness to travel regionally and nationally up to 25% of the time.
Audubon is seeking three (3) strategic, collaborative and innovative leaders to serve as Flyway Vice Presidents to help develop and support its powerful grassroots network of state offices, local chapters, nature centers, volunteers and partners.
The Vice President will be an exceptional communicator who leads by example and brings deep experience and humility in managing high-performing teams to the role.
The Vice President will drive the organization’s strategic direction as a partner and manager to the state executive directors. The Vice President will lead through integration: making the field offices more effective and efficient by helping them solve problems and creating more informed strategies and processes with the national office. As a key member of the management team, the Vice President will deepen coordination and communication between the state offices and national office.
The Vice President will improve the integration, operations, and execution in the organization by playing a key role in advocacy, conservation, campaigns, fundraising, and budgeting in the states in their region. Working side-by-side with the state executive directors, the Vice President will help them implement and fine tune strategies, establish and meet goals and benchmarks, and navigate organizational processes and procedures.
The ideal candidate is a confident leader with a proven record of success as a manager of people and operations, a history of innovative work, a sophisticated understanding of the political process in key states and experience inside a matrix organization.
This is an incredible opportunity to serve in the leadership of an organization uniquely positioned to win conservation victories in the states and to transform communities and protect birds and their habitats.
