Director of Advancement
National Children’s Museum
Salary Range: $125,000 – $150,000 plus benefits
The mission of the National Children’s Museum (“NCM”) is to inspire children to care about and change the world. NCM celebrates the joy of childhood through science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) exhibits and programs. While the Museum is designated by Congress, it does not receive federal funding like other museums on the National Mall. This has required Museum leadership to secure philanthropic support to sustain operations.
We seek a dynamic, externally facing leader with strength in growing philanthropic support with a focus on major individual donors. A deep commitment to the mission of NCM, demonstrable knowledge and interest in the education and development of young people is essential. The qualified candidate will have previous experience creating and executing multi-year strategies to increase private support. Comprehensive experience completing capital campaigns, a successful track record securing seven figure gifts, as well as knowledge of and experience with planned giving strategies is a plus. A minimum of 10 years of fundraising experience, preferably in the Washington, DC region is sought. Bachelors degree required, Masters degree or CFRE is preferred.
