The Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service and the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism seek a Director of Development and Partnerships to steward a fundraising strategy and forge new relationships to build Neighborhood News Service’s visibility in the business and philanthropic community.
Since its launch in 2011, Neighborhood News Service has received local funding from the Zilber Family Foundation, the Greater Milwaukee Foundation, and Bader Philanthropies, among others. It has support nationally from the Racial Equity in Journalism Fund and Report for America.
This role is funded by the American Journalism Project and is part of a multiyear partnership between Neighborhood News Service and Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism to rebuild local news in Milwaukee and across Wisconsin.
Your leadership in this new role will help us achieve our goals to double in size in the next three years and rebuild local news in Milwaukee with community-fueled journalism that provides solutions instead of merely reporting problems.
The Director of Development and Partnerships will work closely with the Executive Director and the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism to steward a fundraising strategy that includes local foundation and business support, reader revenue and major gifts.
The ideal candidate will be an entrepreneurial and collaborative revenue leader with experience working in Milwaukee and building strong relationships with various stakeholders, supporters and community members.
