Chief Development Officer

American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts

Boston, Massachusetts

Consistently reshaping and expanding the definition of freedom in America, the American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts (ACLU) works daily in the courts, in legislatures, and in communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Massachusetts Declaration of Rights. Formed in 1920, the same year as the national ACLU, the ACLU of Massachusetts is the first state affiliate in the ACLU network. Its causes range from ending the death penalty and the drug war to privacy, freedom of expression and religion, and more.

The successful candidate will provide visionary, strategic leadership to build lifelong relationships with donors with the goal of generating transformational gifts to support ACLU of MA’s current and future strategic goals.
