The Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE) is a private, nonpartisan, nonprofit institution committed to rigorous, intellectually open and in-depth study and discussion of international economic policy. Its purpose is to identify and analyze important issues to make globalization beneficial and sustainable for the people of the United States and the world. PIIE develops and communicates practical new approaches for dealing with challenges confronting the global economy.
The Institute anticipates emerging issues and develops practical ideas, presented in useful, accessible formats, to inform and shape public debate. Its audience includes government officials and legislators, business and labor leaders, management and staff at international organizations, university-based scholars and their students, experts at other research institutions and nongovernmental organizations, the media and the public at large.
For the past three years in a row, PIIE has been recognized with Prospect’s Best Economic and Financial Think Tank (North America) award.
PIIE is seeking an experienced and passionate fundraising professional to serve in the newly created position of Vice President of Development (VPD). While working with the President and Board of Directors to develop the strategy in support of the Institute’s priorities, the VPD will lead a small team to expand PIIE’s fundraising platform and capabilities. The best matched professional will demonstrate a track record of building programs, organizing tasks and executing strategic plans.
The VPD must have the ability to design a new philanthropic impact model for PIIE and develop new opportunities for giving. There is a strong interest in building and diversifying the pipeline of donors, particularly unrestricted major gifts.
