Consistently reshaping and expanding the definition of freedom in America, the American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts (ACLU) works daily in the courts, in legislatures, and in communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Massachusetts Declaration of Rights. Formed in 1920, the same year as the national ACLU, the ACLU of Massachusetts was the first state affiliate in the ACLU network. Its current program goals include reproductive rights, LGBTQ rights, immigrant rights, criminal justice reform, open government, digital privacy and free speech.
The ACLU Foundation of Massachusetts, which supports litigation, communication, advocacy and public education efforts for the ACLU, is currently preparing for the 2018 public launch of a new campaign effort.
The ACLU Foundation of Massachusetts is seeking a Major Gifts Officer to engage and establish relationships with new donors, to solicit major and planned gifts, and to establish individual donor goals. The Major Gifts Officer will work with the Executive Director, Chief Development Officer and national staff to partner on significant donor engagement opportunities. This seasoned non-profit fundraising professional should have experience closing 7-figure gifts, be an excellent communicator and presenter, and be prepared to engage in the public launch of the new campaign effort.
