The Director of Development is responsible for planning, developing, directing, and executing a comprehensive and successful fundraising program for the museum, consistent with ICA LA’s mission, vision, and goals. This position reports directly to the Executive Director.
As a key member of senior staff, the Director of Development will provide active, collaborative leadership in conceiving and articulating fundraising strategies, programs, and goals to raise the museum’s annual operating budget, as well as supporting all aspects of a capital campaign currently underway to realize goals set forth in the museum’s strategic plan, adopted in June 2022. The Director of Development will integrate advancement efforts with all museum functions, including exhibition and education programming, public relations, marketing, and the museum’s online presence. Key priorities are expanding ICA LA’s donor base—with a particular focus on direct cultivation and solicitation of individual donors, identifying and cultivating the next generation of major donors, and expanding support through institutional giving—as well as overseeing ICA LA’s giving councils, Fieldwork Council and Curator’s Council, and its new membership program, to be launched in 2024.
