We’re Hiring: Development Director

The San Francisco Public Press, a 12-year-old independent nonprofit news organization producing web, print and radio journalism, seeks a full-time Development Director to work with the Publisher and Executive Director on the design and execution of a diversified fundraising strategy. This is an opportunity to work with an organization dedicated to publishing and broadcasting reliable, relevant and professionally produced investigative and community journalism for diverse and often under-served communities in San Francisco and the greater Bay Area. 

We are looking for a high-energy fundraising professional who believes in our public-service journalism mission and shares our desire to improve the lives of people in our region. 

The San Francisco Public Press is committed to a path that promotes diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging within our organization, and through our journalism and community engagement. These tenets are fundamental to supporting a culture of trust between our organization and the communities we serve. We seek to hire colleagues who are committed to these values. We will help the new Development Director get up to speed on the world of nonprofit and mission-driven media via direct training, conferences, newsletters and industry-specific professional development opportunities.

Journalism has changed. Thanks to the Internet, we can now find hundreds of articles, about a single topic, from multiple sources, at the push of a button. Journalism continues to change, as aggregators and community based sites combine traditional reporting with the dialogue that we share among ourselves, online, on the streets and within our neighborhoods.  
We will adapt and overcome as journalists, as dialogue makers and as those who rely on news and information, adequate enough to help us make daily decisions in a modern democracy.
