Desired Skills & Experience:
The Colorado Director of Philanthropy leads all foundation, corporate, and individual donor fundraising activities to support The Trust for Public Land’s operating needs and land conservation and park creation efforts in Colorado.
General Job Description:
The Trust for Public Land In Colorado The Trust for Public Land creates and protects the places people in Colorado care about, from neighborhood parks to the snowcapped peaks of our beloved 14,000-foot mountains. We create innovative parks and trails including in and around cities where over 80 percent of Coloradans live, work, and play. Since 1981 we have conserved more than 120,000 acres in Colorado, including some of the state’s most iconic and well-loved outdoor spaces, from South Table Mountain Open Space in Golden to the summit of Wilson Peak, an iconic 14’er outside Telluride. Today, our land protection work is focused in the Arkansas Valley from Salida to Leadville; the Central Summits Region which includes the Gunnison Valley and Crested Butte; the San Juan Mountains; and the Colorado Springs & Denver metro regions. We are uniquely positioned to help shape the Colorado of tomorrow. With well over 120,000 people moving to Colorado each year, there is an urgency to our work. Through the delivery of our four core services – Plan, Fund, Protect and Create – we are focused on the inextricable link between healthy people, healthy communities and healthy landscapes. Research shows kids today spend an average of just seven minutes per day in unstructured outdoor play, compared to more than seven hours looking at screens. That’s why we are working to ensure every Coloradoan has access to close-to-home nature, and every urban resident lives within a 10-minute walk of a quality park, trail or open space. Access to nature is an essential prescription for the physical, environmental, social and economic health of our families and our communities. Parks for People In 2012, we launched our Colorado Parks for People Program, building on more than 35 years of experience working across the state. Over the last five years, this innovative and results-oriented urban conservation and park creation program has delivered a diverse array of successes, including 18 new and revitalized parks, trails, playgrounds, gardens, nature play areas, Fitness Zone® Areas, and public art. Each of these built spaces reflects its neighborhood’s special identity, culture and character, and collectively, they serve more than 85,000 metro residents within a 10-minute walk of home. Our leadership includes serving as a planner, convener and community connector, working to integrate disparate people and benefits that extend far beyond a single built space. We are pleased that the work has followed community need and opportunity beyond Denver, with select strategic investments in Aurora, Lakewood, Colorado Springs and the San Luis Valley, among other areas. Looking Ahead The Trust for Public Land’s Colorado program and its Colorado Advisory Board are currently developing a five-year strategic plan that includes these areas of focus: • Protect the lands and waters that define and sustain Colorado’s rural communities and connect people to nature and public lands. • Improve the health of Coloradoans by creating and revitalizing parks, trails and greenways where they are most needed to ensure close-to-home access to nature for all. • Engage Coloradoans to protect, sustain, fund and advocate for parks, trails and other public lands. • Assure the program’s financial sustainability. • Sustain and grow a diverse and committed Board of volunteer leaders. Position Summary The Colorado Director of Philanthropy leads all foundation, corporate, and individual donor fundraising activities to support The Trust for Public Land’s operating needs and land conservation and park creation efforts in Colorado. The Director of Philanthropy works closely with the State Director to develop fundraising goals and to build a comprehensive fundraising program that maximizes support for the organization and its activities in Colorado. The position carries a mixed portfolio of responsibilities with an emphasis on cultivating and stewarding individual major gift prospects and donors. The Director of Philanthropy supervises three staff members including an Institutional Giving Manager, an Associate Director of Philanthropy, and a Philanthropy Associate, directing the team’s efforts to identify, cultivate, solicit and steward foundations, corporations and individuals. The Director of Philanthropy also identifies, cultivates, and stewards major gift donors in Colorado and the SW Region (AZ, NM, UT) interested in supporting specific Trust for Public Land initiatives in these areas. In addition, the Director of Philanthropy helps recruit and manage the Colorado Advisory Board and directs their fundraising efforts. The Colorado Director of Philanthropy works closely with the State Director and reports to the Western Division Director of Philanthropy. Working at TPL Based in an historic building across the street from the Colorado State Capitol, our office atmosphere is casual, open and fun. We are a tight-knit team committed to working collaboratively to achieve tangible, lasting results you can walk around (or play) on. We are curious, hard-working, committed to work-life balance and share a passion for connecting people to Colorado’s outdoors…from neighborhood parks to national parks. Staff who successfully build their careers at The Trust for Public Land thrive in an environment that is driven, open-minded, entrepreneurial, and fast-paced. We collaborate regularly and willingly share our expertise in ways that allow us to all work towards the fulfillment of our mission. And, though we are driven to make a difference every day, we also take time to laugh, to take a hike, and to play. Qualifications Qualified candidates have a strong, demonstrated commitment to the Trust for Public Land’s mission and its efforts to create parks and protect land for people. Specific work experience in land conservation, sustainability, or outdoor recreation is a plus but not required. Other specific skills needed in this position include the following: Fundraising • Minimum of six years fundraising experience, including making and closing major gift solicitations. • Experience in developing and executing annual fundraising plans of at least $2 million. • Knowledge of and experience with Denver and Colorado philanthropic communities highly preferred. • Some experience with large capital, endowment, or other targeted campaigns preferred.

General Job Description:
POSITION: Director of Development, Full-time REPORTS TO: Co-Executive Director of Operations BACKGROUND: Padres & Jóvenes Unidos is a multi-issue organization led by people of color who work for racial and health justice, educational equity, and immigrant rights. Our parents and youth members work together to organize in their communities to challenge the root cause of discrimination, racism and inequity by exposing the economic, social and institutional basis for injustice as well as developing effective strategies to realize meaningful change. Padres Unidos was formed in 1992 by a group of parents who joined forces to remove the principal at Denver’s Valverde Elementary School who was punishing Spanish-speaking students by forcing them to eat lunch on the cafeteria floor. Their win propelled their organizing forward taking on other racist practices throughout the district. Jóvenes Unidos, the student branch of Padres Unidos, was formed in 2000 when youth came together to turnaround their school, Cole Middle School, which at the time was the state’s lowest performing middle school. Since then, Padres & Jóvenes Unidos has evolved into a racial justice multi-issue organization whose historic wins, rooted in members’ demands to achieve institutional change, have gained local and national recognition.

The ideal candidate will be a natural leader with excellent verbal/communications skills and a thoughtful, persuasive personal style; self-starters, who can easily grasp the political goals, history and campaigns of P&JU, who are able to oversee the expansion of our grant-making goals.

Strategic Vision and Agility – Ability to think strategically, identify and take full advantage of available trends and opportunities in the funding world; make the case for general operating grants when possible; build solid relationships with funders by engaging them in the campaigns and projects they will be funding.
