Associate Director of Development

Great Springs Project (GSP) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working to create a greenway of contiguous protected lands between San Antonio and Austin over the Edwards Aquifer recharge zone. This green corridor will include an additional 50,000 acres of protected lands across four counties and be connected by a network of spring-to-spring trails, linking four of Texas' Great Springs: Barton Springs, San Marcos Springs, Comal Springs, and San Antonio Springs. Great Springs Project envisions unifying existing local efforts to address the most critical water, land, wildlife, and public health challenges facing the Central Texas region.


In a state which less than four percent of the land is public, through preserving open space and developing a spring-to-spring trail for the benefit of all trail users, GSP addresses social, health, and recreational equity.



The Associate Director of Development is a vital component to the development and communications team and is responsible for providing strategic support by expanding the portfolio of donors and securing major gifts at the individual and corporate levels. As a highly visible individual, this position will build donor relationships, authentically and enthusiastically, around GSP’s mission and vision. The successful candidate will have a track record of portfolio management, including a history of cultivating new and existing corporate partnerships and will focus primarily on building relationships and identifying new and innovative approaches to solicitations.


Located in either San Antonio or Austin, the Associate Director of Development supports Major Gifts, Grants, Annual Fund Giving strategy, and Communications and Marketing efforts. Reporting to the Chief Development Officer (CDO), this position works with donors, corporate partners and volunteers in donor/prospect cultivation and solicitation to enhance community visibility and establish donor relations.
