Development Director

Walk San Francisco, a pedestrian rights organization, wants nothing less than to make San Francisco the most pedestrian-friendly city in the United States. 

Walk SF works in the interest of all pedestrians in San Francisco, but prioritizes our work in order to address the needs of people who are disproportionately affected by pedestrian safety issues. This includes children, communities of color, people with disabilities, and seniors.

Walk SF's vision includes: 

-Exceptional pedestrian safety infrastructure that serves all people in every part of the city.

-Equitable streets. This means everyone – of every age and ability – should be able to get around safely, easily, and affordably. It also means prioritizing the people and places that have been left behind or discounted for too long with street safety improvements.

-A people- and safety-centered transportation system.

-More car-free and low-traffic streets and spaces.

-Astounding numbers of people walking to get to school, to work, to play, to everywhere – because it’s that safe and inviting!

-No more severe or fatal traffic crashes. None.


Walk SF, an award-winning nonprofit, seeks our first-ever Development Director

to lead and implement a revenue growth strategy by identifying connections,

cultivating relationships, and creating innovative campaigns to engage donors.

This is a collaborative position supported by staff and Board members who will

work in close partnership with the Development Director to achieve our revenue

and membership goals. Our Development Director will be instrumental in

powering our work to make San Francisco’s streets safe for everyone who walks.

The right person will be an experienced fundraiser and strong communicator,

with a proven ability to reach goals, think creatively, and serve as a team player.

Because we are a small nonprofit, our Director-level positions shape strategy and

dig in on the work, while also being very empowered in their roles.
