The Wilderness Society’s Philanthropy Team is a 20-person powerhouse that is responsible for raising funds to help fuel the organization’s fight to protect our wild places for future generations. We’re looking for a highly organized and collaborative person to join our team in the role of Planned Giving Specialist. This individual will contribute to a vibrant planned giving program helping donors realize their charitable goals through informed and impactful giving in support of our mission.
The planned giving program is responsible for current and future support through a wide range of giving vehicles to meet the varied needs of a diverse membership including simple bequests, charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder and lead trusts, an endowment, and a pooled income fund. Donors expressing an intention to support our future work are welcomed into our legacy society, the Robert Marshall Council. The Council is comprised of those members who share a desire to confront the most pressing conservation challenges of our day; climate change, species extinction and inequitable access to nature’s benefits. The Planned Giving Specialist will be responsible for the discovery and cultivation of prospects, as well as enriching the engagement of legacy society members through animated stewardship and personalized contact.
This position plays an important role in supporting an inclusive organizational culture that is grounded in trust and accountability to shared goals and outcomes. TWS has made diversity, equity, and inclusion strategic priorities for the organization and the Planned Giving Specialist will integrate these priorities throughout their work. Across our team, we aspire to be campaign oriented, nimble, collaborative, innovative, transparent, and supportive of staff – our greatest asset.
