Job Description:

706 Hillsborough Street, Suite 100, Raleigh, NC, United States

Company Description Our Mission:  To prepare North Carolina for the future by empowering individuals, strengthening communities, and ensuring our economic viability in a global economy.

Our Goal:  We will work to ensure that by 2030, two million North Carolinians have high-quality credentials or post-secondary degrees.

myFutureNC (MFNC) is a newly established statewide nonprofit organization focused on educational attainment and is the result of cross-sector collaboration between North Carolina leaders in education, business and government.

MFNC was born out of North Carolina’s thought leaders in education, business, faith-based and nonprofit communities, and members of the North Carolina General Assembly and the Governor’s Office. Together, these leaders became the myFutureNC Commission and launched a statewide conversation about economic competitiveness, workforce development and educational attainment.

This is an exciting opportunity to join from the beginning and be able to shape the development activities of the organization as it matures. Strong leadership and vision for the future will be essential.

Job Description The Director of Philanthropy will be responsible for managing the strategic direction and tactical implementation of a comprehensive fundraising program with individual, corporate, and foundation objectives. This new position will work closely with the President & CEO and myFutureNC’s Board of Directors in building a diverse set of donor prospects across North Carolina and nationally.
