The main objective of the Director of Development & Marketing is to develop and implement strategies to raise money to support the organization, cultivate and enlist new donors and retain, renew, and grow existing ones through direct efforts and facilitation of fundraising efforts by the Executive Director and Board of Directors. The Director must be conversant with trends in charitable giving and philanthropy, best practices and non-profit organizations generally, as well as financial and tax considerations relating to Major Gifts and Planned Giving.
In addition, the Director will oversee and coordinate rebranding of the organization to target new audiences, including the cat owning public. Familiarity with rebranding and national marketing campaigns is highly desired.
