Sightline has a rare opening on its management team: development director.
The development director plays a central role in Sightline’s success. The position is described in detail here, but the life of Sightline’s development director is perhaps best understood by the relationships s/he manages. Sightline is largely funded by a a stable of about two dozen private foundations in the Northwest and beyond, a community of major donors that includes about 100 families and individuals who make gifts in the four- or five-figure range each year, and several hundred additional donors who make smaller gifts. The development director, working closely with the executive director, his/her development staffers, and Sightline’s directors and trustees, strengthens the organization’s relationships with these honored people and institutions.
