It's Time Texas: Senior Donor Relations Director

It’s Time Texas is growing, and we need smart, passionate, purpose-driven people to join our team. Here’s our truth: we’re ambitious, we’re different, we’re going all in on building a culture of health in Texas. To do this, we are organizing a social movement around the core value that Texas is best when Texans are healthy. By working with partners and supporters throughout the state, we are changing behaviors, practices, and policies to make healthy living central to what it means to be a Texan.
 
Our work is critically important, but it’s not easy. We work hard and we help each other. We offer a stimulating work environment where talented people who are committed to transforming health in Texas thrive. As part of our team, you will have many opportunities to learn and grow your skill set, while making a real contribution to a rapidly growing organization and awesome team.

We need someone who knows how to sell, is excited to do so, and recognizes the tremendous value this role provides to both our organization and the companies and people who invest in our success. The ideal candidate is an enthusiastic relationship-builder with an entrepreneurial spirit (independent, self-driven, self-motivated, and smart) who is looking for an amazing opportunity to share these gifts with a young, growing, and dynamic nonprofit. We need someone with vision to create a diversification strategy that grows our income and expands our impact exponentially, grit and determination to make it happen, and the flexibility to adjust as needed to deliver results.
