Position Overview

Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and operating as a key member of the leadership team, the Chief Marketing & Development Officer (CM&DO) is a proven leader, experienced in all aspects of marketing and donor development, and works closely with donors, external partners, community stakeholders, professional advisors, board members and Foundation colleagues. The position is responsible for developing programs and materials to identify and cultivate new fundholders to assure a lasting source of philanthropic funds for the benefit of the region. The CM&DO also strengthens the Foundation’s strategic engagement with its existing fundholders, raises the visibility of the Foundation, and communicates its impact to key stakeholders in its four-county service area (El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, and Yolo).

The role of the CM&DO has become even more critical as the Foundation has become laser-focused on asset growth and leadership in support of its four Strategic Initiatives(SIs): Expanding Philanthropy in the Social Economy, Connecting the Regional Food Economy, Preparing Students to Succeed in the New Economy, and Transforming the Creative Economy. The SIs, launched in 2015, have provided a platform for the CM&DO to attract donors and position the Foundation as a leader in these areas through diversified marketing and development.
