About Catholic Charities of Idaho:

Catholic Charities of Idaho is seeking a dynamic Development Director that is aligned with our mission to alleviate, reduce, and end poverty for those we serve. We are a small but growing organization that is committed to innovation and impact. This means being part of a team that is “re-imagining” the field of social services in a way that truly improves the lives of those we serve.  We are a start-up culture with a heart and we are looking for you.

About the You we are looking for:


You are a polished development professional with extensive sales and fundraising experience. You understand how to navigate the who's who of the donor world to find the right alignment of interests and passion for giving. You can build rapport with anyone, anytime, anywhere, and know how to maintain relationships in a way that makes others feel valued and informed, but not overwhelmed by aggressive pressure.

You work collaboratively with the Executive Director, Board of Directors, and Leadership Team to create and implement fundraising strategies that will increase the agency’s support from major donors, including individuals, corporations, foundations, and other sources. You partner well with the Executive Director and other staff to provide agency and service information relevant to fundraising goals and donor interests.

You can translate that to anyone with an interest in our work, and are looking to be part of a team-oriented organization where you can be proud of the work and services you represent.

You find prospective donors, draw them into the mission and work of Catholic Charities, share

the stories of those we serve, and promote our vision of ending poverty. While you have plenty of support from the team, you need to be internally motivated to meet fundraising goals. This is an individual contributor position with the potential to help shape and grow a larger development department in the future.

This is a part-time, 30 hour a week position for the first year. We’ll work with your schedule and availability!



  • Five to seven years of development and sales experience, with a proven track record as a fundraising professional.
  • Bachelor’s degree in business, marketing or other related field.

  • Demonstrated ability to build strong relationships, motivate and work effectively with an Executive Director, board members, service staff, supporters, donors, and volunteers.
  • Ability to work within and support a culturally diverse work environment.
