Managing Director of Development

CAA was founded in 1969 to protect the civil and political rights of Chinese 

Americans and to advance multiracial democracy in the United States. Today, CAA is a progressive voice in and on behalf of the broader Asian American and Pacific Islander community. We advocate for systemic change that protects immigrant rights, promotes language diversity, and remedies racial and social injustice.


CAA seeks a visionary, strategic, and goal-oriented Managing Director of Development as the most senior development executive for the organization at this critical time of growth. Reporting to one of the two Co-Executive Directors, the Managing Director of Development leads and implements CAA’s annual 

and long-term fundraising objectives and significantly contributes to long-term asset building strategies. This team leader is highly organized, effective, and excited to utilize their skills and experiences in development and communications to advance positive social change in a strong and well-established organization rooted in community. The Managing Director of Development is a people-centered leader working collaboratively with staff leadership, board members, and community members to coordinate the strategic cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship of CAA supporters, especially major donors.

This position focuses on engagement with individual donors, especially growing and leading the organization’s major donor programs, donor events, and campaigns, and oversees Stop AAPI Hate corporate engagement and fundraising. This role supervises the two dedicated development staff which include the CAA Development Manager and the Stop AAPI Hate Director of Corporate Engagement, and works closely with the administrative and communications teams. 

An exempt position, the Managing Director of Development can work at CAA’s San Francisco office located in historic Chinatown, remotely, or a combination of the two, and there is a strong preference for candidates who already reside in or are willing to relocate to the Bay Area. 


Full-time; exempt $150,000 - $175,000.
