The League to Save Lake Tahoe is searching for an exceptionally organized, detail-oriented, and creative individual to join our fun and growing team of environmental enthusiasts and experts. The Philanthropy Director is responsible for planning, managing, and implementing all fundraising activities that sustain, diversify, and increase philanthropic support for the League. This is an exciting opportunity for a creative and experienced fundraising professional as the League envisions and executes the next phase of its growth.
The ideal candidate will have comprehensive knowledge of fundraising strategies, infrastructure, and best practices, preferably in a large operation with diversified funding streams. They will be creative and data-driven, and comfortable with both the tactical “science” and relational “art” of successful philanthropy. They will be a hands-on team player and a skilled manager, leading a team currently comprised of four direct reports.
We are highly interested in candidates who have been in fundraising leadership roles for 5+ years with a single organization and have successfully managed programs that raise $3M+ on an annual basis.
Our world-renowned “Keep Tahoe Blue” sticker is both a symbol of an increasingly important mission and an intentional, sustainability-focused lifestyle. Founded in 1957, the League is the oldest and most successful environmental organization focused on protecting and restoring Lake Tahoe’s beauty. We have a culture of trust and respect that supports and guides our decision-making and planning for the future.
We have embarked on a thoughtful DEI journey that focuses on delivering our programs and services in a culturally mindful manner that centers and lifts a wide array of partners and supporters. Our work environment is collaborative, respectful, and inclusive, with a focus on building allyship and a sense of belonging that empowers all team members to show up as their full selves every day. Come to learn, grow, and succeed while sharing your passion for protecting one of America’s most treasured regions.
The League has a hybrid work policy that does not require employees to report to the office on a daily basis. However, because of the nature of this work, we ask that this candidate be located in the Lake Tahoe Basin.
