Director of Development, Communities for Restorative Justice

C4RJ is a nonprofit based in downtown Boston that has grown steadily over the last 23 years, both geographically and in the complexity of its cases, and has emerged as a leader in the restorative justice field. In partnership with 29 police departments and 3 District Attorney offices across Massachusetts, C4RJ facilitates a process that rebuilds communities in the wake of crime and offers a path forward to all those affected-the victim, the responsible party, their families, and their communities. The core of C4RJ's work is a personal, powerful, and effective circle process that gives voice to those who have been affected by a crime and helps individuals understand the harm they've caused and holds people accountable. Restorative Justice's core values of respect and accountability make it a sought-after complement to the criminal justice system.

C4RJ's work is powered by a mission-driven team of three full-time and four part-time staff members, along with approximately 150 highly trained volunteers who facilitate the circle processes in communities across Massachusetts. Their new Restorative Justice Fellowship Program engages returning citizens who have transformed their own lives through restorative justice while incarcerated. The organizational culture is one of collaboration and respect, and C4RJ is committed to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace and in all facets of its work.

The organization is financially sound, with a well-managed budget of $650,000. Its revenues come through a fairly even mix of donor contributions, grant funding, police dues, and state funding. C4RJ is governed by an engaged 14-member board of directors who contribute their strategic relationships, as well as expertise in criminal justice, legal, education, business, and financial management.


Communities for Restorative Justice (C4RJ) seeks qualified candidates to build a robust fundraising program and play a key role in helping this leader in the restorative justice field to realize its full potential. The Director of Development will step into a nonprofit with exciting opportunities to significantly broaden its scope and scale. Drawing on the organization's strong reputation, its compelling mission, and a high potential donor base, the Director of Development will collaborate with and support the Executive Director, the Board of Directors, and other colleagues to achieve C4RJ's growth-oriented philanthropic goals. The successful candidate will be a mission-driven, entrepreneurial, high-energy development, self-directed professional with strong relationship-building skills and a track record of success in leading growth in a fundraising program.
