Founded in 1990, Catholic Leadership Institute (CLI) provides bishops, priests, deacons and lay persons in the Roman Catholic Church with world-class, pastoral leadership formation and consulting services that strengthen their confidence and competence in ministry, enabling them to articulate a vision for their local church, to call forth the gifts of those they lead, and to create more vibrant faith communities rooted in Jesus Christ.
CLI is playing a critical role on behalf of the Roman Catholic Church of today and tomorrow. CLI is helping the Church to navigate generational shifts, to respond to and prepare for ever-mounting demographic challenges among ordained religious and the laity, to establish a near-term vision for the Church in the U.S., and to define an overall roadmap for the Church’s future. The organization is accompanying Catholic parishes, dioceses, and their leaders – from the seminarian to the seasoned bishop to lay leaders – on their journeys amid the complexities of the modern world, supporting them in meeting corresponding challenges and opportunities with the benefit of world-class training, fresh perspectives, and intentionality. CLI and its partners are indeed helping to build a future of hope for Catholic generations to come, one where the Church is not only sustaining but thriving with vibrant communities rooted in Jesus Christ.
CLI has already strengthened the Church through its work with tens of thousands of Church leaders and is poised for even greater impact as the nonprofit apostolate currently enjoys the best financial and overall organizational standing in its history. Propelled by entrepreneurial, visionary administrative leadership and the strategic, active engagement of multiple boards, CLI realized its most successful fundraising to date during the past two years. Yet, to meet the future needs of the Church, CLI must continue to enhance its fundraising profile, building on the over 500 lifetime donors to the organization. CLI’s senior stakeholders will be engaging in visioning and strategic planning during summer 2018 to further shape organizational priorities and corresponding fundraising goals.
Amid this favorable context of forward-thinking leadership and organizational stability, CLI is seeking candidates for the role of Vice President of Philanthropy (Vice President). Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, the Vice President serves as chief development officer and is responsible for working with the Board of Directors, Mission Implementation Team, National Advisory Board, Episcopal Advisory Board, and other volunteer ambassadors to discern, develop, and execute a vision for philanthropy at CLI that will grow donors’ hearts and provide the philanthropic investments required to support world-class leadership formation for the Roman Catholic community. The Vice President manages a team of five, with a projected Major Gift Officer opening in FY 2018. S/he will also closely collaborate with CLI Founder Tim Flanagan, who has historically driven the majority of CLI’s major donor relationships, as an extension of the Philanthropy team. The Vice President serves on the CLI Leadership Team and is expected to influence the overall direction and culture of the organization.
The Vice President will be a central figure in the ongoing success and vibrancy of CLI, enabling it to vigorously pursue its mission while taking the organization to its next level of philanthropic achievement by coalescing strategic priorities with a robust development program. S/he will construct development strategies and execute plans that will markedly increase individual (including annual, major, planned, and blended gifts), foundation, and other philanthropic support.
Required qualifications and experience: demonstrated commitment to the respective missions of the Roman Catholic Church and CLI; bachelor’s degree required, advanced degree and/or Certified Fund Raising Executive credential preferred; minimum of 10 years of experience in progressively responsible development leadership positions, which includes work in all functional areas (individual giving, institutional giving, planned giving, stewardship, board relations), oversight of comprehensive philanthropic program, and leadership in a major capital campaign; demonstrated ability to provide management oversight, leadership, and direction with at least five years of supervisory experience, including creating and managing a budget; knowledge of the dynamics of a national-scale nonprofit organization and of the Roman Catholic Church are preferred, including familiarity with diocesan and parish structures, and a thorough understanding of Catholic parish life and ministry; particular strength in developing the case for support and strategic, complex fundraising plans, and executing against those plans to achieve goals and objectives; history of securing six and seven-figure gifts, including cultivation through solicitation and stewardship, as well as experience working with annual fund strategies to effectively groom the next generation of annual leadership and major gift donors; demonstrated ability in planning and executing strategic communications to complement philanthropic initiatives and achieve goals; experience identifying, nurturing, and motivating board or other volunteer leaders, and a sophisticated understanding of their role in building an effective fundraising network; ability to extract and analyze data to make effective, efficient decisions about donor strategy and process.
