The Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law is a nonpartisan law and policy institute that seeks to improve our systems of democracy and justice. We work to hold our political institutions and laws accountable to the twin American ideals of democracy and equal justice for all. Among our core priorities, we fight to protect voting rights, end mass incarceration, strengthen checks and balances, and preserve Constitutional protection in the fight against terrorism.
We seek a Major Gifts Manager to join an ambitious, high performing, and collaborative Development Department. Our in-house team of nine professionals is charged with raising upward of $18 million annually from a solid, diverse base of supporters, including: national foundations and institutional supporters; major donors and family foundations; direct mail and online donors; and an annual gala event, the Brennan Legacy Awards Dinner. To commemorate the Center’s 20th anniversary, we launched a special campaign for two new initiatives, the Brennan Legacy Fund and the Inez Milholland Endowment for Democracy, as well as a Planned Giving program.
The Major Gifts Manager will report to and work closely with the Deputy Director of Development to help manage all aspects of major donor and family foundation cultivation and stewardship. This rapidly growing portfolio currently accounts for more than half the organization’s annual revenue, and includes individual donors who give $5,000 or more.
Responsibilities include the following:
