American Promise seeks a Director of Ambassador Program to manage the identification, cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship of top campaign prospects and donors.
American Promise is building a nonpartisan movement to empower, inspire, and mobilize Americans to win passage of a federal Constitutional amendment to end the corrupting influence of money in elections – a top issue for almost all Americans regardless of party or political preference.
The For Our Freedom Amendment will strengthen free speech rights for all Americans, protect elections from foreign influence and systemic corruption, restore the relationship of elected representatives to their constituents strengthen federalism by enabling the States to decide what works best, and reverse the political dysfunction of American civic life.
With a proven track record of securing support and recent growth of staff and funding, American Promise is eager to leverage their momentum at this critical inflection point.
The American Promise team is passionate, collaborative, courageous, adaptable, and fun. They love setting big goals, sharing victories, and learning lessons that will allow them to continue to realize their audacious vision to positively change the political landscape nationwide. They celebrate differences and work to ensure that staff, donors, volunteers, and supporters reflect the tremendous diversity of the American people as they strive together on the most American of national projects: amending the US Constitution.
As a result of prioritization of philanthropy by the CEO and Chief Development Officer – including systems development, outreach, prospect identification, and solicitation – American Promise has consistently doubled annual revenue year over year. With a robust Salesforce database of prospects with significant capacity and inclination to support the organization, the opportunities have outpaced current staff capacity despite organizational growth. To support American Promise’s immediate plans to complete a $20M campaign in FY24 and initiate a new, larger plan in FY25, the addition of new Development team members is critical.
The Director of the Ambassador Program will steward, solicit, track, and manage prospects, many of whom will be identified by Ambassadors – a national group of top volunteers and major donors who are working to introduce members of their network to American Promise. The program has launched in Boston, San Francisco, and New York. Currently, there are 40-50 actively engaged Ambassadors who are responsible for giving or getting gifts of at least $25,000; however, the size of gifts and number of opportunities are both growing quickly, especially with the program’s expansion into three more cities. The Director will play a critical role in both managing this expansion and maximizing existing Ambassador potential through more systematized stewardship that prioritizes relationship management, regular communications to highlight successes and upcoming events, and increased giving.”
Reporting to the Chief Development Officer and working closely with the CEO and Founder, the Director will collaborate closely with executive leadership, Board members, and other supporters to continue to engage a national network of volunteers committed to helping achieve American Promise’s ambitious fundraising goals.
