Fund for the Public Interest - Direct Mail Director

location: Denver, CO

Fund for the Public Interest (The Fund) is a national nonprofit organization working
to raise money and increase visibility, membership and political power for the nation’s leading environmental and progressive groups.

We are looking for an experienced, innovative and ambitious candidate to oversee the Fund’s
Direct Mail Fundraising Department, which raises $1.5 million to $2 million annually for 60+ Public Interest Network groups, including USPIRG, Environment America, Toxics Action Center and Green Corps.

The Direct Mail Director will have a few major priorities guiding his or her work in the near future:
• Coming up with new strategies for direct mail’s role in a changing fundraising landscape,
such as integration with online and email fundraising and recruitment of monthly givers.
• Improving the fundraising model, including letter content and mailing strategy. A significant part of this is working with our partner groups to best package their programs and organizational identity.
• Expanding the use of direct mail for acquiring new members and building lists for our partner groups.

The Direct Mail Director’s responsibilities are to:
• Develop fundraising messages and campaigns: consult with group directors and our creative team to choose the most effective messages and stories for each organization’s
special appeal letters and membership renewals.
• Create and edit direct mail packages: write, edit and design direct mail fundraising packages. Steer and edit all copy going out to supporters.
• Track performance: analyze fundraising results and report regularly to partner groups and
senior staff. Manage a large database of all mailings and results.
• Identify new strategies for expanding our membership and deepening support.
• Work closely with group directors, our Membership Services staff and outside consultants
on mailing content and strategies. Work alongside the leadership of other Fund citizen outreach departments (Canvass and Telephone Outreach Project) to coordinate
fundraising efforts.
• Manage staff: oversee the day-to-day management of an administrator and part-time,
hourly staff.
• Oversee all administrative functions of the department: supervise large materials orders
with multiple vendors, follow a complex fundraising schedule for several groups, keep
mailings arriving on time, manage the departmental budget to ensure we are spending wisely to maximize fundraising net and reduce costs, pay the department’s bills.

The Direct Mail Director reports to the Director of Citizen Outreach for the Fund for the Public Interest.

Job Qualifications:

Demonstrated commitment to environmental protection and social change -- 4-8 years of relevant professional experience, and a proven track record of
running a department or large project -- Overall relevant experience includes (but
