    Vice President and Chief Advancement Officer — Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation (Scottsdale)

    May 12, 2020
    Position Description:

    The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation is seeking a senior level Vice President and Chief Advancement Officer who is a proactive entrepreneurial talent, equally able to represent the organization on a local and national stage at the highest levels, and manage the day-to-day operations of a small, growing, and promising fundraising program.  Over the last several years, our contributed revenue sources have steadily grown from less than $1 million annually to more than $3 million this year, as we have expanded relationships with key funders nationally and regionally, along with growing individual support.

     The VP/CAO will be responsible for the development, implementation, and management of all aspects of community and national stakeholder engagement integral with the fundraising strategies for the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, including increased annual unrestricted and restricted support; the execution of a strategic growth campaign with a potential goal of at least $15 million; and the identification and engagement of new prospective donors at all levels - including at the highest level of leadership giving. 

    The VP/CAO will manage their own portfolio of individual and institutional major gift donors and prospects.  The VP/CAO will partner with the President and CEO on his fundraising priorities and donor and prospect portfolios, and support and oversee the fundraising activities and donor and prospect portfolios of the Board of Directors, campaign volunteer leadership, and staff. 

    The VP/CAO will also play a key role in strengthening the Foundation's presence in multiple strategically determined regional, national, and potentially, international sectors and regions. 

    THE FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT FOUNDATION

    Over a 70-year career, Frank Lloyd Wright created a modern American architecture that advanced the way we build and live around the world.  More than a designer of buildings, he was an architect of ideas about innovative design, building in ways that make our lives better.  Transforming architecture through sustainable, organic design, he is considered America's greatest architect. 

    The work of Frank Lloyd Wright is more relevant today than ever before.  His ideas teach us ways to live more beautiful lives--and lives that are healthier and sustainable through authentic connection with the natural world all around us.  Through our preservation work, we invite the world to experience his two homes--Taliesin (Wisconsin) and Taliesin West (Arizona) and understand how Wright's work can be made a part of their lives.

    VISION

    Inspire the world through beautiful spaces that are thoughtfully designed and experienced.

    MISSION

    Preserving Taliesin and Taliesin West for future generations, and inspiring society through an understanding and experience of Frank Lloyd Wright's ideas, architecture, and design.

    HOW WE DO OUR WORK

    We accomplish this mission by focusing our efforts around three core pathways: 

    • Preservation:  We steward Wright's work and collections at Taliesin and Taliesin West to provide the experience of Wright's ideas.
    • Innovation:  We continue Wright's legacy of innovation to create a more beautiful and sustainable future.
    • Education: We educate professionals, students, and lifelong learners through programs ranging from field trips and summer camps to lectures and salons.  Our campuses are offered to professional development programs in architecture and design that are in keeping with the spirit and tradition of Wright's apprenticeship program.

    PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITIES

    The Vice President and Chief Advancement Officer will be responsible for the following:

    • Plan, implement, and provide oversight of a comprehensive fundraising and membership program that secures financial resources to support the multi-faceted goals of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation.
    • Develop annual and campaign cases for support detailing leading fundraising priorities, goals, and messages.

The congregation of street trash also posed a public health risk to the clients experiencing homelessness in the area. After identifying our pilot area (a grid between 9th and 15th avenues and Jefferson and Buchanan streets), we looked to successful neighborhood clean-up programs in other cities for models and best practices. We conducted client surveys to gauge participation and appropriate rewards.

        Position Description:

        In partnership with GOYFF, Helen's Hope Chest (HHC) engages the community to provide for the basic needs of children and teens in foster and kinship care. Primarily HHC achieves this goal through our "boutique" in Mesa, AZ where youth are able to visit up to 4 times per year to "shop" for clothing, shoes, under garments, hygiene supplies and more. Extended projects throughout the year include a K to College initiative where youth are outfitted for the new school year; JaKelle's Christmas Box, which serves approximately 3,000 youth every year with gifts, books, stocking items, and books; and our new "Pop-Up" events that serve youth through the Children's Heart Gallery and other foster care organizations. After the success of these Pop-Ups, HHC's leadership would like to expand services by adding locations and developing a mobile program that will take HHC's services to harder to reach areas of Arizona. At HHC we believe we can reach more youth by bringing our services to them using a "mobile unit", reducing the financial impact of caring for these youth on the families while improving the mental health and emotional security of the children.
