Philanthropy & Stewardship Officer

The Philanthropy & Stewardship Officer is a key member of the philanthropy team and works in collaboration with colleagues across the organization to engage and steward supporters of Waterfront Park. This newly created role is an opportunity to be part of a growing team that is tasked not only with completing a $200M comprehensive campaign, but with building a robust, community-focused philanthropy program that will sustain Waterfront Park in perpetuity.

Reporting to the Associate Chief Philanthropy Officer, the Philanthropy & Stewardship Officer has two core areas of focus: 1) To create and implement a comprehensive donor stewardship and recognition program to support fundraising goals and activities for Friends’ $200M Campaign for Waterfront Park Seattle; and 2) To serve as a gift officer for FWS; identifying, cultivating, and soliciting a portfolio of prospects and donors that generates five-figure+ gifts.
