The Director of Philanthropy, Annual Fund and Membership is responsible for the growing of the CHM annual fund and membership programs. The primary goal will be to design and implement strategies and tactics to secure and increase annual and episodic support at all levels, including major gift ($25,000+) donors and prospective donors with the potential to support the Museum’s annual fund and priority programs at $100,000 or more.
The Director of Philanthropy, Annual Fund and Membership will lead, develop, refine, manage, and implement a plan to expand annual fund and membership in number of donors/members and in financial support, partnering with our marketing department and utilizing web technologies and our CRM—Salesforce.
