Position Announcement
Development Manager

The Capitol Center for the Arts is currently accepting resumes for the position of Development Manager.

Reporting to the Director of Development and the Executive Director, the Development Manager at the Capitol Center for the Arts will also work closely with the Membership Manager and Marketing Manager to achieve yearly contributed income goals.

This full-time position shall be responsible for managing the daily activities of the development department including but not limited to:

  • Ensuring timely acknowledgements of all gifts
  • Management of multi-year pledges including generating monthly invoices and tracking overdue payments
  • Management of benefits for corporate sponsors (complimentary tickets, marketing credit, management of collateral materials)
  • Management of benefits for members of the CCA’s Ovation Society
  • Assisting with filling ticket orders for major donors and sponsors

Additionally, the Development Manager will work closely with the Director of Development on donor identification, cultivation, and stewardship, building their own relationships with key stakeholders including members of the Capitol Center’s Ovation Society, CCA Corporate Partners, Trustees, and volunteers.  Other duties include helping to plan and execute yearly special donor events including the spring “Sneak Peek” events, the annual on-sale barbecue and other cultivation events.  This position may also expand to include support work on the next phase of the CCA’s Capital Campaign “Creating Our Future.”

The successful candidate will have a passion for the performing arts, a willingness to engage with patrons, donors, and corporate partners about the work of the Capitol Center through in-person, telephone and written communications, strong written and verbal skills, and proficiency with basic computer programs including Excel, Word, and Power Point, as well as experience with CRM database work.  Experience with Canva is a plus.  A Bachelor’s degree is required, and prior nonprofit development or administrative experience is helpful.  However, more valuable than prior experience is a willingness to learn and to grow, and a collegial and collaborative approach to working with a close-knit team of colleagues in an exciting and often fast-paced environment.  As is to be expected at a performing arts center, some nights and weekends will be required.

The Capitol Center for the Arts is committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion throughout our organization and in all aspects of our work, recognizing this commitment as essential to realizing our mission.  Our commitment to EDI fosters a culture where team members can truly belong, contribute, and grow.  We believe in each individual’s value and encourage applications from people of any age, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, religion, disability, veteran status, and any other characteristic or identity.
