Alliance House Development Director
Job Posting

Alliance House is a nonprofit International Center for Clubhouse Development (ICCD) Clubhouse in collaboration with Valley Mental Health.  Alliance House provides a socially and emotionally supportive environment for adults with serious and persistent mental illness.  Our mission is to help members gain the skills, experience and confidence necessary to determine their future through employment in the community, educational opportunities and safe, affordable housing.  Those whom we serve are "members," rather than clients or patients.  Our emphasis is not on their illness, but on who they are, and what they can do.  The culture is one of collaboration and side-by-side work.  Funding for members include Medicaid, Vocational Rehabilitation, Veterans Affairs, and Alliance House funds.

The Director of Development will be raising money to create more opportunities for unfunded members to attend the Clubhouse, increase housing opportunities for members, and assure sustainability at a time when government funding is wavering.

Salary is commensurate with experience.

Development and fundraising duties include:

  *   Soliciting major gifts from individual donors.
  *   Writing grant proposals to corporations and foundations.
  *   Planning donor events throughout the year.
  *   Conducting annual giving drive.
  *   Creating planned giving program.
  *   Hosting prospective donors for Clubhouse tours.

The successful candidate will be an integral part of the Clubhouse community, working side-by-side with both staff and members.  Alliance House is looking for a colleague who is able to empathize with individuals recovering from mental illness who are seeking to reintegrate into the community.
