As RIVET’s Director of Development, you will translate our compelling mission focused on providing micro-grants to youth innovators in “capital deserts” around the globe into significant philanthropic support from high networth individuals, family offices, and foundations. 

You will be responsible for three work streams pertaining to fundraising: 

  • Strategy: As a strategic philanthropic leader, you will set the strategy for fundraising efforts to accomplish a two year, $3MM campaign. Your efforts and funds raised will build the infrastructure needed to get RIVET to the next phase of organizational development where we will not be reliant on philanthropic funding.

  • Fundraising: Along with support from the CEO and volunteer leadership, you will develop and own a full portfolio of donors and prospects capable of supporting RIVET at the $10K-$250K level. While there is ongoing pipeline development work needed, much of your initial portfolio has been identified and is in the process of being qualified; some have been researched, some are already engaged. 

  • Systems: While RIVET will not be dependent on philanthropic support in the future, there are systems that need to be refined or put in place to achieve fundraising goals over the next two years and to continue to nurture donor relationships and funding opportunities beyond 2025. We have built an initial CRM platform and you will further define and refine necessary system work. 

The Director of Development will join a dedicated, passionate, low-ego team of founders in launching a first-of-its-kind social movement led by young people. This new role reports into the CEO, working across the organization with all team members and volunteer leadership.
