Job description:


Pacific Marine Mammal Center (PMMC)

Senior Director of Development

Pacific Marine Mammal Center was the first marine mammal rehabilitation facility in California and was established prior to the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972.  They now share the responsibility for marine mammal rehabilitation with six other centers along the California’s coastline. PMMC is very proud to be a leader in the field.
Over the decades, PMMC has rescued approximately 8,000 marine mammals through its high-quality rehabilitation services that are largely volunteer run. Closing in on their 50th anniversary, PMMC remains the only marine mammal rehabilitation facility in all of Orange County, California, licensed to rescue, rehabilitate, and release marine mammals that strand on local beaches. This work also leads to the marine mammal research that they take part in collaboration with other conservation organizations and academic universities to address growing problems.  In addition, the Center reaches roughly 10,000 children annually through its experiential-located education programs, most of which are provided free to at-risk communities. Building on past success and current momentum, they look ahead to the future as they explore ways to act more broadly on their mission.
One of PMMC’s key priorities is to hire a Senior Director of Development who will collaborate with, and report directly to, the Chief Executive agent. The SDoD will focus on strengthening PMMC’s resources by establishing a broader and more diversified fund development program with an emphasis on building a Major Gifts program and expanding Corporate partnerships.
PMMC is well positioned for fundraising growth, especially as many of its potential donors who already have demonstrated a financial commitment to PMMC over the years, have not yet been wealth screened and cultivated.

With an impressive board of directors, with 100% giving and commitment to continued philanthropy, and, a one of a kind mission for Orange County (only licensed rescue, rehabilitate, and release marine mammals in OC) this is a phenomenal opportunity to build a fundraising function that is poised for significant growth and impact.
The Chief Executive agent is seeking an innovative and accomplished visionary fund development leader to inspire the board and volunteers for greater success.
