Director of Leadership Giving

The San Francisco Botanical Garden Society seeks a Director of Leadership Giving (DLG). Reporting to the Director of Development and joining a Development team of 5 staff, the DLG will lead major and planned giving programs and capital campaigns for the Garden. At the end of 2019, the Garden is launching the public phase of a $6.7M fundraising campaign to build a new nursery facility. By mid-2020, the Garden will raise the final $2M needed to break ground through a $2M challenge match. Over the next year, the DLG’s primary focus will be on the success of this effort working with the Executive Director and campaign committee. Once the nursery campaign is completed, additional capital campaigns are likely to occur and require at least 50% of the DLG’s time. The other 50% will be dedicated to donors giving $10,000 and more and to developing a robust planned giving program.
