Job Description:

The Union of Concerned Scientists seeks a Director of Major Gifts to secure funding and partnerships to protect the role of science in American democracy.

 

UCS is made up of nearly 250 staff who combat efforts by special interests to sow doubts about science in public policymaking and who conduct rigorous independent research that generates meaningful solutions to the world’s most pressing problems. UCS’s public policy successes are numerous, including the adoption of more stringent fuel economy standards for cars and trucks, renewable portfolio standards for energy production, and whistleblower protections for government researchers.

 

Today UCS’s highest priorities include combating climate change; developing sustainable ways to feed, power, and transport people; reducing the threat of nuclear war; and ensuring that its solutions to all these problems simultaneously advance racial and economic equity.

 

Protecting science in the face of high-profile attacks requires funding and partnerships. As a leader in the field, UCS is continuing to grow and enhance a forward-thinking development program that ensures resources are matched to the highest priorities. It seeks a Director of Major Gifts to be a part of this important effort.

 


Qualifications:

The ideal candidate will have a broad development background, with deep personal experience in cultivating, soliciting, and stewarding major donors, a record of supervising a high-performing team, and comfort with data management systems. The candidate will combine this experience with an entrepreneurial spirit and strong commitment to the role of science in public affairs and a passion for the specific issues on which UCS works.
