Aug 3 - Development Director
In 1964, Pittock Mansion, one of Oregon’s most important historic homes, was going to be torn down and replaced by a subdivision. When Portlanders got wind of the plan they launched a grassroots campaign to save Pittock Mansion, and they succeeded. Repairs took 15 months and on June 4, 1965, a restored Pittock Mansion opened to the public. Having recently completed a public survey that informed improvements to the experience of visiting, we have become one of Portland’s premiere sights for residents and tourists alike. In recent years, we’ve gone from welcoming 72,000 visitors to over 110,000 visitors. With 90% of revenue coming from admissions and the museum store, we are ready to take the leap from a membership program with hundreds of donors to a multi-faceted development program. If you are a builder with experience designing and executing successful annual fund campaigns, major donor programs, membership programs, grant strategies, and corporate sponsorship programs, we are eager to meet you. Bonus points if you have experience with planned giving and optimizing donor software. This is an exciting time of growth and evolution for Pittock Mansion, and a unique opportunity to start and grow a development department at a well-resourced organization. ... more >
