Director of Development

3 Day Startup
Posted on Monday, July 27, 2015

Job Description

Context
The experience of entrepreneurship unlocks human potential in powerful and unique ways. Our students tell us that starting a company–an act of creation charged with hope, promise and potential–transforms both the budding entrepreneur and the people their new venture serves. For students, the experience of entrepreneurship instills confidence, motivation, and self-understanding. For communities, entrepreneurship grows economies, creates jobs, and brings people together to solve problems.
 

We aim to spread this impact more broadly and deeply through developing a fundraising engine to cultivate more traditional nonprofit funding opportunities. We seek a development director with experience in various fundraising approaches working with established nonprofits to guide and own the development of this engine.
 

Since 3DS is in the early stages of this fundraising development, we are looking for a development director with experience planning comprehensive fund development activities and rolling them out, and who is comfortable testing and validating development hypotheses in early stages. Importantly, this position is itself extremely entrepreneurial: the type of person to succeed in this role is excited about the opportunity of building the fundraising shop at 3DS and executing innovative fundraising approaches.
 

We hope the fundraising engine will grow to add more fundraising team members, so the director’s responsibilities may also grow. Just like most early stage companies, however, the role will bring with it minimal resources and little in the way of extensive fundraising history or track record.
 

The development director will partner with the Chief Executive Officer and Operations Coordinator for strategy and planning, and collaborate with the rest of the 3DS team on fostering and developing philanthropic culture and success.
 

Responsibilities

  • Develop and execute 3 Day Startup’s annual fundraising plan

  • Secure financial support from individuals, foundations, and/or corporations

  • Manage the implementation of Raiser’s Edge

  • Develop and steward ongoing relationships with major donors

  • Create and execute a strategy for a large sustained base of annual individual donors

  • Developing and tracking proposals and reports for all foundation and corporate fundraising


Qualifications

  • BA required, MA plus

  • 3-plus years experience in development, including major gifts

  • Knowledge of the Austin community funders

  • Demonstrated excellence in organizational, managerial, and communication skills

  • Knowledge of Raiser’s Edge
 
Salary Range: $45-75k depending on experience
To ApplyIf you’re interested in applying for this position, email us (founders@3daystartup.org) the following: a) resume, b) one paragraph description of why you are a good fit for the position, c) one paragraph description of your motivations for getting involved

Job DescriptionAbout Texas CASA
Each year, there are more than 46,000 children in the Texas child protection system. But did you know that there are more than 8,000 members of the community stepping up to give these children a voice? These advocates are called CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteers.
 
When a child enters the child protection system because his or her home is no longer safe due to abuse or neglect, a judge may appoint a CASA volunteer to advocate in court for the best interests of the child and guide him or her to a safe, permanent home as quickly as possible.
 
Texas CASA is the state association that provides resources and support to the 71 local CASA programs that serve nearly 25,000 children across Texas. But with more than 46,000 children in the child welfare system, this leaves almost half of the children in care without a CASA volunteer to speak up for them.

Family Finding Program Manager

Texas CASA
Posted on Wednesday, July 15, 2015

Job DescriptionAbout Texas CASA
Each year, there are more than 46,000 children in the Texas child protection system. But did you know that there are more than 8,000 members of the community stepping up to give these children a voice? These advocates are called CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteers.
 
When a child enters the child protection system because his or her home is no longer safe due to abuse or neglect, a judge may appoint a CASA volunteer to advocate in court for the best interests of the child and guide him or her to a safe, permanent home as quickly as possible.
 
Texas CASA is the state association that provides resources and support to the 71 local CASA programs that serve nearly 25,000 children across Texas. But with more than 46,000 children in the child welfare system, this leaves almost half of the children in care without a CASA volunteer to speak up for them. Our goal is for every child in care have a CASA volunteer and to establish CASA as a household name to build awareness of this amazing volunteer opportunity.
 
Texas CASA is a team of 26 creative, world changing, have fun while we’re doing it people. Our benefits are great, and we work together as a team on most of our projects. If this feels like an organization that you would like to join, please read on.
 
The Family Finding Program Manager position is new and will be an integral part of the Texas CASA team. Family Finding is an approach that uses a model to increase the focus on placing children with relatives and help children who have been in care for many years reconnect with extended family. Family Finding is built on four core beliefs:
  • Every young person has an immediate and extended family, and they can be found if we try.
  • Loneliness can be devastating, even dangerous, and is experienced by most children and youth in care.
  • A permanent, meaningful connection to family and caring adults helps a youth to develop a sense of belonging and hope.
  • The single factor most closely associated with positive outcomes for young people is a meaningful life-long connection to a family and community support.
 
Job Summary
 
The Family Finding Program Manager will oversee and lead a startup operation of a new statewide effort to utilize Family Finding to improve outcomes for children and youth in state care. This person will work collaboratively with local CASA programs’ Family Finding Specialists, as well as Child Protective Services (CPS) caseworkers, investigators and supervisors for the state of Texas. The Family Finding Program Manager will work with a team at Texas CASA to develop a curriculum and to train and coach all local program staff and CPS caseworkers. The ideal candidate will have an enthusiastic and positive attitude and a cooperative work style. The candidate will also be confident and possess excellent leadership and facilitation skills.
 
Essential Functions
 
  • Collaborate with CPS, members of the judiciary, attorneys and other stakeholders to maximize the benefits of Family Finding work to secure permanency and connections for children in state care.
  • Implement and facilitate a training curriculum and coaching model for local CASA programs’ Family Finding staff.
  • Work cooperatively with local CASA programs to help establish Family Finding initiatives and to infuse CASA advocacy with understanding and utilization of the benefits of Family Finding for children and youth in state care.
  • Serve as a Family Finding coach and expert for local CASA program staff.
  • Identify and negotiate contracts and arrangements with Family Finding vendors, search software and other needed tools.
  • Develop and maintain a high level of understanding of Family Finding techniques, practices, strategies and research.
  • Represent Texas CASA by actively participating in stakeholder meetings, conferences and other initiatives.
  • Conduct site visits to assist with and learn about local Family Finding efforts.
 
Education and Experience
 
  • Bachelor’s degree in relevant field and experience in child welfare and/or social work preferred.
  • Experience in program administration, management, child welfare issues, training and/or coaching preferred.
  • Knowledge of the Texas child protection system and CASA is beneficial.
  • Effective verbal and written communication skills.
  • Skill in performing research and synthesizing and organizing information in oral and written form for a wide variety of audiences, including CASA staff and volunteers, state agency personnel, members of the judiciary and other stakeholders in the child protection system.
  • Skill in analysis and evaluation of complex program and policy issues.
  • Ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously, work independently and prioritize responsibilities.
