River Network seeks an experienced and highly organized professional to join our dynamic and geographically dispersed team. The Institutional Relations Director oversees River Network’s institutional relations and investment portfolio (foundations, corporations, and government or public funding sources), including grant research, writing, submission, and reporting. The Institutional Relations Director has lead responsibility for establishing and meeting or exceeding River Network’s institutional revenue goals, helping us grow to $3.5M in foundation grants and $1.6M in corporate funding over the next five years. This role is highly collaborative in nature, working with a wide range of River Network staff to brainstorm alignment between our current work and aspirations (see our current strategic plan) and investor priorities, develop compelling proposals, establish budgets with oversight from finance, and report on progress against deliverables associated with each grant. They are also responsible for identifying and approaching new prospects to fund our work in collaboration with other staff. We are looking for a smart, energetic, organized, and determined leader with a growth mindset, experience germane to designing and executing resource development strategies, a proven ability to excite interest and investment, and a drive to continually engage with institutional partners in person and by phone, email, and other means.
