The Center for Jewish History is home to five partners—American Jewish Historical Society, American Sephardi Federation, Leo Baeck Institute, Yeshiva University Museum, and YIVO Institute for Jewish Research. The partner collections total more than five miles of archival material and span nearly a thousand years of history. When the Center opened its doors as the new "Library of Congress of the Jewish people," it made a commitment to preserve the treasures that live within its walls and make them accessible to scholars, students, and diverse audiences. The Center relies on philanthropic support to do this work.
The Center is currently looking to fill the following position/s:
Reporting to the Chief Advancement Officer, the Institutional Giving Officer will join a team of five advancement professionals who are part of the intentional and important effort to invigorate and elevate philanthropy for the Center for Jewish History.
The Institutional Giving Officer will play a key role in expanding the Center’s overall fundraising program by taking the lead on expanding corporate sponsorship at the Center and managing a distinct portfolio of private foundations. Equal parts research, coordination, and strategy, this role is ideal for an innovator seeking a place to grow and build their own profile as an outstanding fundraiser in the nonprofit arena while making a tremendous impact for an organization with a high-stakes mission and ambitious plans for the future.
In its 23-year history, the Center for Jewish History has raised $250M and is debt free and mortgage free. The Center has a $13M endowment. Last year, development raised approximately $5M. The overall philanthropic goal for 2023 is to raise $8.3M, with a $2M goal for institutional giving.
This position is based at the Center for Jewish History on 16th Street in New York City. The work can be partially hybrid, but regular onsite time is required.
