Charles E. Smith Life Communities
Founded in 1910 as the Hebrew Home for the Aged, Charles E. Smith Life Communities (CESLC) traces its origins to a compassionate initiative. A small collective of individuals recognized the pressing need to provide housing, sustenance, and support for aging members of the Jewish community. Over the past century, CESLC has burgeoned into a multifaceted nonprofit organization situated on a 38-acre campus in Rockville, Maryland, serving over 1,100 older adults daily. CESLC operates various residences offering comprehensive services tailored to support seniors at different stages of aging, including independent living, assisted living, long-term care, rehabilitation, outpatient medical services, in-home care, advocacy, and expert medical support.
CESLC is now hiring a Director, Major and Planned Gifts who will serve as a front-line major gift officer, cultivating, soliciting, and stewarding a portfolio of prospects with the objective of maximizing their leadership and philanthropic engagement. The Director will develop and implement strategies to raise major and planned gifts as well as government grants. The ideal candidate will have at least eight years of frontline fundraising experience, with a history of successfully securing five and six-figure gifts.
