Charles E. Smith Life Communities
Rockville, MD - Hybrid
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 seeks a Vice President, Resource Development to lead the creation and execution of the organization's development strategy for increasing revenue, meeting annual operating and revenue goals, and to actively grow and diversify funding streams to include major gifts, planned giving, direct mail, corporate sponsorships, and the annual Guardian Campaign. Reporting to the CEO, the Vice President will develop and manage an effective fundraising program and team with priority on developing and successfully soliciting major gift prospects. Successful candidates will be proactive and strategic thinkers with significant experience in people management and all or most areas of fundraising, such as annual campaign, capital and endowment, major gifts, and planned/institutional giving.
