We're looking for a Director of Development!

The Portland Museum of Art is proud to partner with the Aspen Leadership Group in our search for a Director of Development. The PMA is an incredible place to work—an ambitious museum with a passionate Board of Trustees and staff, in a beautiful city—and for the right person, someone who is enthusiastic for the arts, who enjoys being around people, and who wants to play a major part of an institution on the rise, this is a dream job.

Under the direction of the PMA Director, the Director of Development will lead the continuing transformation of fundraising efforts at the Portland Museum of Art (PMA) and serve as a key cultivator and solicitor of donors, inspire constituents to higher levels of giving, and work collaboratively with museum staff and volunteers to ensure success in building strong constituent relationships that support our strategic goal to build financial strength and sustainability.

The Director of Development will have a unique opportunity to steward our established donors, foster new relationships, and strengthen the museum’s culture of philanthropy. The Director of Development will continue to fortify our financial foundation by identifying spending priorities and enhancing the case for support; by achieving ambitious operating, special project, and endowment revenue goals, resulting in a better balance among primary revenue sources.

The Portland Museum of Art is an institution steeped in history and alert to the opportunities of the future. Our collection of more than 18,000 artworks guides our exhibitions and educational programs, and gives shape to our identity. As a vibrant art institution in the heart of a singular American city, we also maintain a steadfast commitment to our community and region. We believe that art can help us understand the vital relationship between the local and the global, and can serve as an anchor as individuals seek to interpret the most pressing issues of their time. Across every department, the work of the PMA is informed by its respect for artwork and art makers; by its high level of attention to the complexity of art and history; and by its engagement with its audiences and community, in the past, present, and future.
