Advocacy & Mission-Driven Nonprofits

Major Gifts Officer (x2) Greater Twin Cities United Way, Minneapolis, Minnesota

Bringing people and communities together to advance the common good, Greater Twin Cities United Way partners with local nonprofits, businesses, government, and social service agencies to address its community's most pressing needs. Those goals — stabilizing families, helping children succeed, and empowering healthy lives — encompass local issues ranging from hunger, housing, and domestic violence to educational programs, healthcare, and more. Approximately 88% of every dollar donated goes to initiatives and programs that help people in crisis get back on their feet, prevent future problems and build a stronger community.

The Opportunity

To continue this groundbreaking work, Greater Twin Cities United Way is looking to add two talented Major Gifts Officers to its development team as they embark on a historic campaign. The ingredients are all here for the right person to be successful in the role: a captivating mission; a storied history of creating transformational change; a strategic, inspired leader who is an advocate for their staff; smart, fascinating, and collaborative colleagues; a full slate of resources and services designed to support a donor-centric approach; and a portfolio of both high-capacity prospects and highly engaged donors.

With at least 5 years of development experience, closing leadership, major, principal, and blended gifts of 5 and 6 figures the Major Gifts Officer will identify, cultivate, solicit, and steward donors to generate revenue of $2-3 million. This is the ideal opportunity for an innovative individual who is passionate about changing the face of the community through major and principal gifts.
