Website Parkinson's Resources of Oregon


Are you ready for a position with an organization excited to leverage your extensive development experience? Working at Parkinson’s Resources as our Development Director might be a great opportunity for you! Parkinson’s disease is the second most common neurological condition – and the number of clients seeking our services grows every month. Your fundraising success will position us to meet this pressing need. This is a role for someone who is used to raising up to $1M (with assistance from volunteers and board of course)! You will join a team of high performing professionals as we accelerate our outreach and provision of service throughout Oregon and SW Washington.

At Parkinson’s Resources of Oregon (PRO) we are committed to improving the quality of life of those living with Parkinson’s disease in Oregon and SW Washington. We are an independent, regional organization which means that 100% of all contributions remain here in the Pacific NW. The pandemic was especially hard on those we serve. We are diligently reconnecting and engaging with clients across the region, with an immediate focus on those who may be recently diagnosed or are currently underserved. Our program team is fully staffed and we are launching a new peer support program and eagerly watch for opportunities to host in-person education and wellness classes as our community’s comfort grows. With three locations, passionate volunteers and dedicated leadership, PRO provides direct care and support to thousands of families. Even as you help grow our budget – you will also have opportunities to connect directly with our constituents and see how your efforts are changing lives.

This is a full-time, exempt position. We are currently working in-person (Beaverton) or hybrid (3/2). The Development Director (DD) will have significant autonomy in setting strategy, planning, organizing and executing all aspects of PRO’s giving program to include mid-level and major gifts, annual fund, monthly giving, and planned giving initiatives. Our development team is comprised of the DD and an event coordinator (currently focused on our fall walks). The DD reports directly to the Executive Director.

The successful candidate will be an experienced fundraiser with skills that will be utilized to establish a major gift program while building upon a loyal donor base. They understand the power of a database and developing relationships with donors at all levels. As a member of the leadership team, the Director will provide regular verbal and written progress reports and interact with staff, board and volunteers.

The Development Director brings keen focus to building and expanding the individual giving program. This team member will develop and execute annual strategies, must be results oriented, and exceptionally comfortable soliciting and securing gifts at all levels. The successful candidate will be poised to jump in and assume independent work.
