Sorry for another job board posting, but wanted to see if anyone had any leads for this open position at the Progress & Freedom Foundation.

Vice President, Development & Outreach

The Progress & Freedom Foundation (PFF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, market-oriented think tank founded in 1993 and based in Washington, D.C. that studies the digital revolution and its implications for public policy. Our four centers cover (i) communications law and policy; (ii) intellectual property, especially copyright; (ii) media policy; and (iv) Internet policy. PFF is looking for a development director to oversee outreach to supporters and other third parties, and to help us grow the organization going forward.

  • Craft effective proposals that will help PFF grow its base of support over time;

  • Manage correspondence with donors;

  • Develop and maintain a solid database of past, current, and prospective funders;

  • Help prepare PFF's leadership to initiate and maintain relationships with funders; and

  • Lead internal meetings about fundraising strategies and tactics.

The ideal candidate will:

  • Possess excellent writing, speaking, persuasive, and organizational skills;

  • Have prior related work experience in fundraising and development, preferably in politics or public policy, dealing with corporations, trade associations, foundations and individuals;

  • Enjoy working in a fast-paced environment;

  • Have a working knowledge of technology policy and an affection for information technology tools; and

  • Understand and embrace PFF's mission and public policy objectives.

Qualified candidates should send a cover letter explaining their philosophical interest in the organization, as well as a resume, salary history/requirements and a development-related writing sample to PFF President Adam Thierer (athierer [at] pff.org ). Candidates will be interviewed on a rolling basis until one is selected, so please apply as soon as possible.

PFF is located in downtown D.C. PFF is an equal opportunity employer.
