NewSpring seeks an energetic servant leader to fulfill the role of our Executive Director. The Executive Director will be responsible for fundraising and outreach activities to build a strong community presence; emphasizing donations through donor outreach, the execution of successful fundraising events and other related activities as delegated by the Board of Directors. The ability to develop and maintain relationships and generate consistent sources of funding for NewSpring are essential. Key relationships with partners, foundations, schools, corporate sponsors, individual donors, Board members and volunteers, are integral to NewSpring’s growth and success.
A successful Executive Director will bring new ideas and strategies to develop alliances and deepen existing relationships for the benefit of NewSpring and those we serve. Succession planning and developing bench strength will be key to the future expansion of NewSpring Center. A successful Executive Director will jointly develop and achieve aggressive fundraising objectives while working within NewSpring's budget limitations.
The Executive Director will work closely with the leadership of the NewSpring Art Studio, the Board and other stakeholders in carrying out strategic initiatives and managing the day-to-day activities of the NewSpring staff. We also need a leader who will do what is necessary to get the job done even if that requires standing at the copy machine. A “command and control” leader will be out of place at NewSpring.
This position presents a highly rewarding opportunity to support the community and to work with great people.
The successful candidate must believe in NewSpring’s spiritual foundation and emphasis. They must be a motivator and a strong project manager, able and willing to cultivate new relationships (i.e. volunteers and donors) for NewSpring beginning the very first day. They must be well-connected and respected in the communities we serve and draw from.
