Founded in 1976, the Fulbright Association (FA) is the official alumni association of the Fulbright Scholarship Program in the United States with a mission of advocating for the Program and promoting international education. Fulbright students and scholars travel to 165 countries to teach, research, and engage in ways that promote peace and understanding. Returning scholars, other alumni and friends join the FA to support international educational programs and personal diplomacy: community outreach, events sponsored by 52 chapters nationwide, an annual conference, “impact” travel, and efforts to promote Fulbrighters as a resource for international peace and other global challenges. The FA also awards the prestigious Fulbright Prize to world leaders such as Nelson Mandela, Corazon Aquino, Bill and Melinda Gates, and Jimmy Carter.
This year, the FA will focus on expanding advocacy efforts, working with chapters to share the Fulbright experience with communities nationwide, growing membership, piloting a networking portal for members, and developing an enriched digital presence in social media. The position of Senior Manager of Development will play a critical role in expanding fundraising efforts, particularly in major gift cultivation. The Executive Director and the Board of Directors are fully engaged in and supportive of these efforts.
The senior manager is a one-person, full-time staff position devoted exclusively to development, with the support of one intern and a data management consultant. She/he will report to and work daily with the Executive Director, collaborate closely with the Deputy Director, and work with the FA Board regularly. We seek applications from hard-working professionals who are enterprising, entrepreneurial and energetic.
Annual salary is commensurate with experience and skills, but expected between $55,000 to $65,000. Benefits include medical, dental and disability insurance, paid annual leave, and a matching retirement plan.
