Working in a culture of collegial, and dedicated professionals, the successful candidate will report to the President and CEO and be accountable to the Board of Directors. In collaboration with the Board of Directors and the President and CEO, the successful candidate will lead a major donor strategy forging new relationships and expanding The Hastings Center’s financial resources, visibility, and impact.

The successful candidate will facilitate The Hastings Center’s upcoming celebration of its 50th anniversary.
The Hastings Center is headquartered in Garrison, NY. The nature of this role and The Hastings Center’s donor base allows for flexibility of the location of the Chief Development Officer.
