About CPD

The Center for Popular Democracy promotes equity, opportunity, and a dynamic democracy in partnership with innovative base-building organizations, organizing networks and alliances, and progressive unions across the country. We currently work with 50 partner organizations in 35 states and Puerto Rico to build the strength and capacity of democratic organizations to envision and advance a pro-worker, pro-immigrant, racial and economic justice agenda. CPD is a rapidly-expanding, dynamic organization that offers an exciting opportunity to drive ambitious campaigns and partner with community-based organizations across the country to build political power and win tangible victories that improve the lives of low-wage workers, immigrants, and communities of color.

About the Position

The Director of Individual Giving and Special Partnerships is a new role within CPD’s growing Development Team, and will be responsible for building CPD’s individual donor and events programs, and building out strategic partnerships that support our work. The Director will work with the senior development team staff, the Public Affairs team, the organization’s senior leadership and will directly supervise experienced staff who directly manage our individual giving and events, and work with them to build an integrated program that dramatically increases the sources, levels, and modes of engagement for a range of donors. S/he will work to develop value-adding relationships with the people and institutions to make these events successful, and to advance our mission and broader fundraising activities. The right candidate will be passionate about our mission, and have creative, ambitious, and executable ideas about how to diversify and build new revenue streams that also elevate our work on the national stage. 

It is strongly preferred that this position be located in New York, but Washington, D.C. and other locations will be considered for the right candidate.

Develop strategic new partnerships that open opportunities for new donor engagement and which elevate our public presence (e.g., through storytelling, engagement of cultural institutions, etc.);

Collaborate closely with the Development Director and the team that anchors foundation-focused fundraising to integrate content & messaging;

Support other fundraising staff from programs to help drive individual donor cultivation, build skills needed for individual fundraising, and to find opportunities for donor engagement in program work;

Collaborate closely with the senior leadership of CPD to set ambitious goals and ensure we meet them.

Key Skills

Demonstrated ability to envision an ambitious strategy to use events to cultivate donors and build reputation, and execute on that strategy;

Ability to plan and administer multiple concurrent projects;

Strong project management and organization skills;

Company Profile
CPD’s model for change draws from the successful base-building and policy advocacy of Make the Road New York (MRNY), a membership-based organization of more than 10,000 low-income, primarily immigrant New Yorkers with dynamic community centers in Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and Long Island. Since 1997, MRNY has become one of the most effective forces for racial and economic justice in New York City and State. MRNY campaign victories have catalyzed public investments of over $500 million for low-income communities of color and fundamentally altered the legislative landscape in New York City and State on issues as broad-ranging as wage theft, immigration, school safety and health access.
