At New Story, we believe a home is the foundation for a flourishing life. That’s why we're on a mission to house 1 million people by 2030 and fundamentally change the market and social structures keeping families out of safe housing today. 

As a strategic fundraising professional, you will be responsible for building New Story’s institutional giving program. While strengthening partnerships with existing funders, you will find new prospective funders, cultivate them, and successfully secure major commitments. You will do so by leading the strategy for engaging foundation partners, organizations and institutions, powerfully communicating program impact, writing/editing/submitting proposals, and stewarding relationships. 

In this entrepreneurial role, you will be charged with creating something new and building processes and structures to support it. For example, you will be critical to determining how the fundraising team works best with the Impact team to secure transformative funding while also protecting the integrity of New Story’s mission. 

This position is part of New Story’s fundraising team and will work in close collaboration with all staff and subject matter experts. You will report directly to our Senior Director Of Development.
