Director of Development (HIRED)
Charlotte Lab School is a diverse-by-design, progressive K-8 charter school in Center City Charlotte. We are reimagining school for the 21st century and are looking for a Director of Development to help us continue to make our vision a reality. At Lab, we empower our students with the skills and mindsets they need to grow into the thinkers, creators and innovators of tomorrow.
Charlotte Lab School is hiring a Director of Development (DoD) to grow and lead fundraising during an exciting new phase in Lab’s history. The DoD will play a critical role in telling Lab’s story and designing a fundraising strategy to help the organization reach new heights and increase its impact in the Charlotte community.
The role will be responsible for raising $500,000 annually in year one, with targets increasing annually thereafter, with a primary focus on (1) setting a comprehensive, donor-centric fundraising plan that strategically leverages the Executive Director and the Board of Directors and (2) shepherding a portfolio of individual/major gift donors through a relationship management process.
The DoD will also grow and lead Lab staff to be part of a school-wide fundraising team, ensuring all activities are systematic and aligned with the annual development plan.
This is a full-time position, with the possibility of flexible hours and work location.
