The Washington Animal Rescue League and Washington Humane Society merged one year ago to form the Humane Rescue Alliance (HRA). This new, vibrant organization has dramatically increased its donor base and plans to enter a major capital campaign ($30-50 million) in the next 12 months. This individual will plan, implement, and refine HRA’s robust Direct Marketing program, which includes Online and Direct Mail fundraising. Together these two programs raise approximately $1.5 million for our mission and engage thousands of people who love animals. We are seeking a strategic thinker who can creatively retain donors and inspire them to continue their annual support. This individual will work closely with the Development and Communications teams to shape donor communications, build a mid-level donor program, and manage a small portfolio of donors. He or she will also partner closely with several key vendors who support our direct marketing program. As a Director, this individual will report to the Chief Development Officer and work with the three other Directors in the department to help set strategic directions for fundraising at HRA. He or she will manage our professional two-person Operations team, which assists with Direct Marketing; produces all donor data, reports, and analysis; and supports Planned Giving.
