Founded in 2011 by award-winning author, lawyer, and journalist Amy Bach, Measures for Justice (MFJ) is a non-partisan nonprofit that works to make criminal justice data transparent for system reform. The organization was founded with dual aims of identifying trends and patterns that are otherwise invisible and grounding criminal justice policy in fact.
By making county-level criminal justice data from across the United States easier to get, easier to understand, and easier to use, MFJ is resolute in its commitment to deliver the necessary data to foster better decision-making and enable communities to hold their criminal justice systems more accountable. Today, Measures for Justice is leading a movement to change the future of criminal justice by developing data tools that help communities reshape how the system works.
Measures for Justice seeks a Director of Development (DOD) to galvanize its philanthropic investment. Reporting to the Chief of Strategy and Operations and overseeing the Donor Experience Manager, the DOD will build and execute a dynamic fundraising strategy centered around maintaining and growing MFJ’s existing revenue portfolio while developing new revenue streams for the organization’s mission.
The ideal candidate will have demonstrated success in institutional fundraising (specifically foundations) securing six- and seven-figure gifts. The DOD will possess a creative entrepreneurial spirit and act in deliberate, strategic ways to prioritize efforts that bolster philanthropic investment in a dynamic environment. The DOD will serve with enthusiasm, flexibility, and know-how to identify opportunities that propel the critical work MFJ does every day.
The salary range for this position is $160,000–$173,000.
