  • Fulfill membership benefits and ensure that existing benefit program for Constellation Circle supporters is appropriate stewardship for their giving level.
  • Work with the Director of Individual Giving to develop annual giving plan including strategies for donor acquisition and increased individual contributions.
  • Manage all promotional materials for the Constellation Circle.
  • Work closely with the Membership team on mass appeal, multi-channel Annual Giving efforts.
  • Other duties assigned as needed.
Position Requirements
  • Bachelor degree preferred.
  • Five to seven years of development experience, preferably with a museum or other cultural institution.
  • Experience in building successful relationships and nurturing ongoing relationships with prospects, donors, volunteers, and board members.
  • Experience drafting compelling letters and crafting promotional materials.

  • Expertise with Salesforce or another CRM system.
  • Outstanding communication skills, both verbal and written, with the ability to present ideas effectively and influence donors and other audiences.
  • Must be flexible and resourceful with the ability to problem-solve in a fast-paced environment.
  • Ability to multitask and prioritize under tight deadlines while staying organized and keeping strict attention to detail and maintaining a professional demeanor.
  • Ability to work in a positive team-oriented environment while also functioning autonomously.
  • Must be goal-oriented with a high level of motivation.
