Friends of the Children – Detroit is seeking an extraordinary leader to take our fundraising and marketing efforts to the next level as Fund Development Director. The Friends’ innovative model is proven to break the cycle of generational poverty for children who face the highest risks and we have a recent opening in the Detroit chapter.
The Fund Development Director will be relentlessly driven to advance the Friends’ brand, achieve best-in-class marketing to reach prospective donors, and increase the organization’s fundraising capacity (through donor stewardship, events, and grant writing).
Friends of the Children is a nonprofit that is impacting generational change by empowering youth through relationships with professional mentors. We do this by providing children facing the most obstacles with a long-term, salaried, professional mentor, who we call a “Friend,” from kindergarten through high school graduation, 12+ years – no matter what. We are currently seeking an extraordinary professional to embark on a new career journey as a Friend at our Detroit Chapter.
