Director Of Advancement
Outward Bound California seeks an innovative and experienced human-oriented and systems-driven leader who believes in the power of outdoor education and who has the skills and expertise to advance the organization and its fundraising, brand and communications to the next level of sophistication and excellence.
Outward Bound California (OBCA) is a dynamic state-wide non-profit that uses challenging experiences in outdoor settings to create social-emotional learning opportunities for our students (teens and adults). From our 1-day programs on our San Francisco Challenge Course to multi-day rock climbing and backpacking in the High Sierra and Joshua Tree, OBCA encourages our students to tap into their inherent potential as compassionate leaders and active participants in their communities. OBCA is deeply committed to increasing access for those who have traditionally been excluded from outdoor spaces. We do this, in part, through our 40 community partnerships and by offering partial or full scholarships to over two-thirds of our students.
We believe that all people should have safe access to the outdoors and culturally relevant and responsive educational programming. We work to build a culture where we are always learning and improving toward a vision for equity and belonging for all staff. We are looking for team members who can actively join us in this process. We are also committed to reflecting the diverse communities with whom we work and strongly encourage people of color, LGBTQ+ identifying folks, and women to apply.
The Director of Advancement will lead all aspects of Outward Bound California fundraising and external communications, and manages an experienced team of five. This includes a multi-year development strategy encompassing the Community Fund, a growing Major Gifts program, robust Institutional Giving program, and a Capital Campaign.
