Director of Development and Communications
Are you ready to bring your talent and expertise to an innovative non-profit organization providing quality services to the largest growing segment of our population? Do you seek work that is challenging, meaningful, and fun? Does your best day at work include knowing that what you’ve done has made a measurable difference in someone’s life?
ACCA is looking for a Director of Development and Communications to complete our leadership team and manage the strategic growth and coordination of our fundraising efforts.
Founded in 1967, the Athens Community Council on Aging is a private, non-profit organization providing services to older adults and adults with disabilities in 26 counties of Northeast and East Georgia. Through innovative program and service delivery, ACCA provides opportunities for individuals of all ages and abilities to live and age well.
Older adults are the fastest growing segment of our population in Northeast Georgia. Throughout ACCA’s history, we have offered vital services to older adults and adults with disabilities that meet the current and emerging needs of this population. ACCA must respond to the rapidly growing number of individuals in need of services while ensuring that the programs and services we provide remain innovative, relevant and meet the specific needs of older adults in Northeast Georgia.
Reporting to the President/CEO, the Director of Development and Communications will be responsible for the design and implementation of ACCA’s fundraising efforts with an emphasis on donor relations and communication. This person will cultivate and manage ACCA’s culture of generosity and gratitude and ensure that all ambassadors (board, CEO and staff) have what they need to be successful in their efforts to increase financial resources.
The Director of Development and Communications will develop systems, research prospects and ‘set the table’ for the President/CEO to cultivate prospects, steward donors and close gifts. This person will lead the efforts of the Outreach and Special Events Coordinator, overseeing the planning and execution of ACCA special events. In addition, s/he will work collaboratively with senior leadership to develop and implement communication strategies to broaden the impact of ACCA’s programs and oversee organizational messaging. S/he will work as a staff liaison with the Board Development committee to ensure that the board has tools and training and is fully engaged in the efforts to raise needed funds. Our hope is to add an emerging leader to our team who will partner with us to ensure that ACCA remains the premier provider of aging services in Georgia.
