Brooklyn Community Foundation
Director of Individual Giving


About the Brooklyn Community Foundation

Brooklyn Community Foundation is the first and only foundation solely dedicated to New York City’s largest borough. We are on a mission to spark lasting social change, mobilizing people, capital, and expertise for a fair and just Brooklyn.

Since our founding in 2009, Brooklyn Community Foundation has provided over $33 million in grants to more than 300 nonprofits through our Community Fund and Donor Advised Fund program. The Foundation’s innovative community-led approach stems from Brooklyn Insights, a project that engaged nearly 1,000 residents across Brooklyn whose ideas resulted in three core strategies focused on Youth, Neighborhoods, and the Nonprofit Sector. In 2015, the Foundation won the prestigious Impact Award from the National Committee for Response Philanthropy in honor of this work. Visit www.BrooklynCommunityFoundation.org for more information.


Position Summary - Director of Individual Giving

We’re looking for a self-motivated and goal-oriented team member who is passionate about developing and delivering an individual major donor program to support our mission. You will serve as our resident individual giving expert by managing this revenue channel. 

We’ll invite you to be part of a highly effective and collaborative team. Our goal is to support you but give you the space to take ownership of your portfolio as you identify, qualify and cultivate new high-net-worth individual supporters. You will work closely with our COO, Sarah Shannon, and CEO, Cecilia Clarke, to push forward a comprehensive stewardship strategy. 

You will consistently identify new prospects and opportunities to cultivate relationships. You will build a deep understanding of individual priorities and potential for upgraded gifts to help us reach our short- and long-term goals. That means you’ll have your finger on the pulse of our existing donors and guide their experience with the Foundation and its work. You’ll also plan fundraising and cultivation events, including dinners and receptions to provide interactive gatherings for our team to engage with donors.
