Director of Development

Founded in 1994, Science Club for Girls fosters excitement, confidence, and literacy in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) for girls, young women, and gender expansive youth from underrepresented communities with free, experiential community-based programs. With women making up less than 29 percent of the STEM workforce—and Black and Latina women at less than 4 percent—SCFG addresses a critical need, offering a continuum of engaging activities in STEM for K-12 girls and gender-expansive youth, including junior mentoring and leadership experiences for high school-aged participants, and adult mentoring and role modeling by committed women with STEM careers. Over the last 13 years, over 90% of our high school juniors and seniors have gone on to college, with over 55% of our graduates majoring in STEM.


SCFG has been on a consistent upwards trajectory – more than doubling the number of girls served over the past 4 years -- and is now seeking a Director of Development to help usher in a new era of growth and expansion. Reporting to the Executive Director, and working collaboratively with staff, board members, and volunteers, the Director of Development will lead strategies to build upon a track record of fundraising success, elevate SCFG's brand visibility, and ultimately contribute to SCFG’s capacity to serve even more girls in the Greater Boston area. 

This position calls for a versatile and well-rounded development professional with 7+ years of experience, is excited to join a team that is committed to removing barriers and addressing the gender gap in STEM, and thrives in a work environment that values community, scientific thinking, lifelong learning, leadership, joyfulness, and a commitment to gender and racial equity.
