NOW Seeking Director of Development

Northeast Opportunities for Wellness, Inc. (NOW) is seeking a Director of Development to manage the organization’s development, fundraising, and grant writing. NOW is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides opportunities in sports, fitness, and nutrition for children ages 3-14 who otherwise may not be able to afford such opportunities. The NOW Director of Development will manage and expand fundraising in conjunction with the Executive Committee including but not limited to annual appeals, capital campaigns, grant writing, bequests, and creation of additional income streams.

Throughout its 10-year history, NOW has provided scholarship support and wellness programs for thousands of children in northeast Connecticut. The Director of Development will play an important role in helping to maintain and expand NOW’s capabilities to continue providing important youth outreach and education programs in the 10-town area. An ideal candidate would be familiar with the business & philanthropic community of the region and have prior experience working in the non-profit, foundation, and/or family business sector.

The Director of Development will receive a 15% minimum commission on new donations brought into the organization with the potential for additional compensation, based on the total amount of new funds raised annually. Successful grant applications completed by the Director of Development will also present an opportunity for commission, with the exception of grants that do not support operational costs.
