HistoriCorps® is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to foster a preservation ethic by engaging volunteers in saving historic places. We partner with federal, state, and local land management agencies to provide educational and outdoor opportunities, inspiring in our participants a lifelong commitment to the stewardship of our historic resources and public lands. From our Morrison, CO headquarters, we coordinate and instruct projects across every region of the United States.
The Development Manager’s role is vital to HistoriCorps’ mission and our ability to meet continuing financial obligations. This position will develop and implement fundraising strategies that strengthen the connection between HistoriCorps and its stakeholders, donors, and supporters while building new partnerships and programs to expand awareness of the organization and reach new audiences.
As a member of HistoriCorps’ administrative team, the Development Manager will work closely with the Executive Director, Chair of the Board of Directors, and the Director of Workforce Engagement and Communications to develop and provide strategic direction for HistoriCorps’ development efforts as outlined in the 2020 Strategic Plan, while responding to opportunities and changing needs among partners and target audiences. It is hoped the Development Manager can start by October 2022.
The Development Manager’s duties include but are not limited to:
Donor Management and Stewardship:
- Work with Executive Director to develop short-term and long-term fundraising strategies to meet organizational needs in line with HistoriCorps’ strategic plan identifying 1 year, 5 year, and 10-year goals;
- Set annual monetary fundraising goals to be included in yearly HistoriCorps budget approved by Board of Directors;
- Manage traditional donor engagement methods such as quarterly appeals, year-end giving campaigns, and special fundraising events
- Utilize existing CRM system to identify, cultivate, and build community of individual donors and corporate sponsors, as well as identify new partnerships for future development growth;
- Collaborate with the Communications team to ensure consistent development messaging across HistoriCorps’s marketing and communications channels.
Leadership and Culture:

- Prepare leadership and staff members for donor interactions and meetings;
- Provide support for HistoriCorps’ initiatives and events, including hands-on projects, and be an excellent brand ambassador;
- Dedication to equity and inclusion, appreciating others for the value their unique experiences and perspectives bring to the organization.
- Willingness to step out of one’s position description to support organizational functions, such as Field Staff Training, including the ability to work occasional nights, weekends, and off-site as required.
- Presenting or speaking at events related to development, as necessary
- A willingness to get the job done and help where needed. This might include filling out organizational paperwork or participating in hands-on preservation projects in remote locations – which we think is the best perk of the job!
