The Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) provides vision and voice to build strong communities that, together, transform the way people connect to Judaism and change the world. As the largest Jewish movement in North America, URJ stands for a Judaism that is inclusive and reflective of a wide range of identities and accepts the responsibility of dismantling oppression both inside and outside of their communities. Through camping, youth experiences, programs, information sharing, and networking opportunities, over 850 congregations and 15 residential camps create opportunities for the URJ to enhance their capacity to build and expand community, engage in meaningful and authentic Jewish life, deepen Jewish learning, energize worship, pursue social justice, and develop inspired leadership.
The URJ seeks a dynamic and passionate West Coast Camps Development Director to oversee fundraising activities for Camp Newman, Camp Kalsman, and 6 Points West. Reporting to the Executive Director of URJ Youth and Camping West, overseeing several development managers, and working in partnership with lay leadership, the Development Director will play a key role in creating and implementing year-round and large-scale capital development initiatives to sustain and grow the camps, including the retreat and conference centers, innovative academic year programming, and the excellence of core camp programs.
The ideal candidate brings a minimum of 5-7 years of proven relevant experience with a significant focus on fundraising, strong relationship building skills, an excellent ability to create and execute, and a sophisticated understanding of the impact and unique value of overnight immersive experiences.
