Assistant Vice President of Development
Catholic Extension

Assistant Vice President of Development
Catholic Extension
Chicago, Illinois
Catholic Extension was founded in 1905 and established by Pope Pius X as a “papal society” in 1910 with a mission to build churches in America's most rural regions. More than 112 years later, Catholic Extension remains committed to strengthening and supporting the Catholic Church across the United States.

In poor mission dioceses throughout our country, there are more than 15 million Catholics who are on fire for their faith and committed to building up vibrant parish communities. In these areas, the faith is thriving but the resources are scarce. Catholic churches are exceeding capacity during Sunday Mass; communities without access to a church building are using empty storefronts and warehouses as places to gather; and pastoral and lay leaders are traveling hundreds of miles a week to offer faith formation, lead youth ministries, and provide social outreach to numerous parishes throughout their dioceses.

It is with a strong commitment to its legacy that Catholic Extension invests in these faith communities, ensuring that Catholics across the country can experience the fullness of Church life. Catholic Extension funds church construction projects in places where old buildings are inefficient or can no longer sustain the capacity of their communities. It supports Catholic leaders of all ages so that they can increase their impact for the people they serve. It funds Catholic ministries and programs that engage Catholics in dynamic faith formation, fostering communities full of active parishioners. Together with its generous donors, Catholic Extension is celebrating the mission of the people who do God's work in their communities.

Since Catholic Extension's founding, it has distributed more than $550 million to poor Catholic dioceses right here in our own country. Through funding and initiatives, and in partnership with donors, Catholic Extension helps marginalized communities build faith, inspire hope, and ignite change where it's needed most.

Reporting to the vice president of development, the Assistant Vice President of Development (AVP) will manage the nine-person major gifts team comprising regional gift officers, support staff, and a prospect research analyst, as part of the overall 20-person development department. The AVP will be responsible for management duties related to expanding and enriching Catholic Extension's major gifts program, while also personally engaging in frontline fundraising and carrying her/his own portfolio of approximately 25 to 50 individual major gift prospects and donors. The major gifts team is the fastest growing revenue source for Catholic Extension and the organization is in the feasibility study phase of preparing for a major philanthropic campaign.

The AVP serves as a strategic partner to the vice president of development and the chief operating officer, among other Catholic Extension leaders, in setting annual and multi-year fundraising goals, and identifying and refining giving priorities. S/he will be a key figure in continuing the growth of an organization-wide, major-gifts-focused culture of philanthropy and building the donor base, while increasing overall philanthropic resources, high impact partnerships, awareness, and powerful connections with both the Catholic Extension's existing stakeholders and its emerging audiences. The AVP will champion industry best practices and an ethos of continuous improvement.

Catholic Extension seeks candidates who are dynamic, highly-organized, goal-oriented, and strategic, with outstanding presentation and writing skills, a keen sense of organizational diplomacy, and deep experience in communications and marketing. The successful candidate will be a proven leader, manager, mentor, and collaborative colleague who is comfortable leading major initiatives and supporting the leadership of others, and has a track record of effectively leading organizational change. Candidates must be motivated by matters of faith, community, service, and justice. (Note: Catholic Extension is not an ideological platform or advocacy organization.)

Required qualifications and experience: commitment to and passion for the mission of Catholic Extension, and the ability to communicate and generate excitement about its mission, history, vision, programs, and fundamental strengths; commitment to and understanding of the mission and teachings of the Roman Catholic Church; bachelor's degree required, advanced degree or professional fundraising certification preferred; minimum of 12 years of post-college work experience and at least seven years in a major gifts role or directly related experience, preferably within a faith-based, nonprofit organization(s) related to social outreach, organizational capacity building, or human services on a regional, national, or international scale, though other relevant backgrounds will be considered; demonstrated ability to provide management oversight, leadership, and direction with at least five years of significant supervisory experience; particular strength in developing the case for support and strategic, complex, and innovative fundraising plans, and executing against those plans to achieve goals and objectives; hands-on experience with six and seven-figure gifts, including cultivation through solicitation and stewardship, as well as experience working with annual giving strategies for grooming the next generation of annual leadership and major gift donors; success in securing gifts from both defined and undefined constituencies; must be steeped in modern philanthropy best practices and able to effectively integrate external relations functions; demonstrated business acumen, including experience creating and managing a budget, and the ability to extract and analyze data to make effective, efficient decisions about strategy and process; working knowledge of modern data management practices and techniques, including database information systems, data modeling, and analysis; experience identifying, nurturing, and motivating volunteers, particularly board members; ability to travel up to 25 percent of the time.

Executive Director Ministry/Development
CARITAS For Children, Inc. (and Catholic Outreach)

Every day, we hear about people in need around the world, yet we struggle to find a tangible way to personally make a difference. Through CARITAS FOR CHILDREN we’ve found a way. And for those who join us, it’s a way flowing with joy and purpose.

CARITAS For Children is a Global Ministry looking for a passionate and dynamic Executive Director of Ministry/Development. We are a Catholic Lay Apostolate recognized as a Private Juridic Person within the Archdiocese of Chicago dedicated to developing relationships globally while impacting faith locally. At its core, CARITAS For Children provides financial assistance for the health, education, and general welfare of orphaned and disadvantaged children. This is done in partnership as part of the laity of the local Catholic Church and/ or Catholic religious communities throughout the world. CARITAS brings a future and hope to children who have been born into a cycle of extreme poverty while creating a Christ centered encounter with (caritas-loving) supporters.

The person filling this position will be Christ-centered, enthusiastic, an effective communicator in writing and speaking, a servant who disciples and teaches other Christians, and could be an experienced lay worker, religious, or priest. The most successful individual to build this position will never call it work, instead, you will want to call it your personal mission to serve God. If you have a natural and heart-felt charism for human communication, you will very easily help us grow awareness of this special caritas-love among our existing and prospective sponsors and caritas-loving families. This will lead you to easily help us grow our network of Communities of Caritas. This is more than just a job, it is truly a ministry of love and sharing with others. As you consider and pray about exploring this work consider this:

As our Director of Ministry Development, you will be responsible for expanding CARITAS For Children as a Catholic Lay Apostolate recognized by the Catholic Church and operating as an ever expanding resource for The New Evangelization. A deep, personal motivation and commitment to the virtues of the CARITAS ministry is essential. Your guiding light can be found at: 1 John 13:34-35.

  • You will use your dynamic personality to touch thousands of families through our volunteers, parishes, and sponsor families. Our evangelizing work collectively creates a deep understanding of God’s love for us, leading to the creation of the most heart-felt relationships possible with a child of God and our sponsors…globally.
  • You will be giving real hope and a future to thousands of children worldwide. This will make a lasting difference in their lives as well as to all those who they in turn will touch with their love showing a true and loving mercy through direct relationships with our sponsors.
  • You will grow Catholic faith-based relationships to better engage individuals and families with their parishes thereby implementing and expanding through your New Evangelization work.
  • You will work with the Executive Director of Caritas along with our developing team using your excellent talent, energy and knowledge to build, reinforce, and expand awareness of our ministry regionally and throughout the country. There are substantial plans for growing our Caritas-outreach which will require your help in a number of areas including: (most especially) fundraising, introducing people to CARITAS and into a Christ-Centered mission encounter, going around the country in person, digitally, and through the use of social media as well as other forms of data-based methods, to reach tens of thousands of people with a message you will develop and “preach” using all of our latest technology. You will create Communities of Caritas throughout the US and beyond.
  • You will raise awareness about CARITAS For Children and establish special relationships with Catholic communities of faith and Institutes, including Archdiocesan, Diocesan, parishes, schools, universities, retirement homes and others where individuals and families come to learn about God and live their lives.
  • You will represent CARITAS at all levels of local church leadership and should have a good working knowledge of the institutional Church.
  • You will serve the needs of all age groups with a good amount of special emphasis on young-adults, creating international long- and short-term mission trips, and you will be helping to form intentional disciples who will help us with their ever-expanding collaboration.
  • You will grow and equip domestic and international volunteers and trainers of volunteers as Advocates for Caritas.
