ABOUT THE POSITION
The Deputy Vice President of Development (DVP) leads fundraising efforts for UnidosUS’s core operations, with a particular focus on managing the Resource Development (RD) team and helping ensure success in meeting annual general support fundraising of $3 million and collaborating with colleagues to fundraise for specific campaigns or special projects that in previous years has ranged from $5-15 million, in addition to general support goals. As the RD team leader, the DVP contributes to budget and strategic planning processes and serves as a key partner to the Communications and Marketing and Alignment teams on marketing and outreach, audience building, and partnership development.

The DVP will be responsible for shaping and managing the infrastructure needed to sustain and grow our unrestricted and institutional fundraising and operations. The successful candidate will be able to lead and advance strategic corporate and foundation relationships, major gifts, and individual giving, planned giving, special events, and develop new revenue generating programming in partnership with the team and organizational leadership. The DVP will also lead in the stewardship and cultivation of current funders and donors and help strategically expand and diversify UnidosUS’s funder base.
The DVP serves as a thought leader to program and policy VPs on fundraising from and for the Latino community and will be expected to collaborate with VPs to support our annual organizational priorities and provide input to future fundraising goals as we develop the new strategic plan.
