The Virginia Civic Engagement Table (VCET) is excited to announce the expansion of its team through the creation of a new Development Director (DD) position.
As a continually growing organization, VCET is seeking a Development Director to help support the future growth of its programmatic work throughout the commonwealth of Virginia. This new team member will work closely with our Executive Director, and will be responsible for creating and implementing plans to expand our fundraising capacity with the support of an experienced fundraiser.
The ideal candidate for this role is interested in creating their own development plans, trying new approaches to fundraising, and working collaboratively with the entire VCET team to support our mission.
This position is remote, with minimal travel required for events. VCET is headquartered in Richmond, VA and has a strong preference for candidates living within the Commonwealth of Virginia.
For the right candidate, VCET may be willing to consider candidates based in DC.
Who we are:
Since 2008, VCET has been committed to building progressive power in Virginia that prioritizes economic, social, environmental, gender, and especially racial justice. VCET envisions a multi-racial democracy, where the full diversity of our Commonwealth is included, actively participating and represented.
VCET is guided by a key organizational strategy: fostering collective action around a common agenda. This creates the directional north star to build the large, sustained coalition needed to tackle challenges such as the 2020 Census, dismantling systemic white supremacy through strategic policy reform, and ensuring every voter has fair and free access to the ballot box. VCET is a statewide organization that serves a broad network of partners across the Commonwealth with a concentration in Northern Virginia, greater Richmond, and the tidewater region (which includes Newport News, Hampton Roads, Virginia Beach). The work includes cultivating a diverse and progressive leadership pipeline in Virginia, driving collaboration through equitable and inclusive relationships, and growing shared capacity and resources for the progressive movement infrastructure in the Commonwealth.
