Senior Director of Philanthropy

American Prairie
American Prairie seeks a Senior Director of Philanthropy to direct and manage American Prairie’s Forever Wild comprehensive campaign, a nine-figure, multi-year fundraising effort continuing through 2027. Reporting to the Vice President and Chief Philanthropy Officer, the Senior Director of Philanthropy will direct and execute the campaign strategy in consultation with the organization’s National Board of Directors and Executive Team. The Senior Director will assemble and manage an engaged, diverse campaign committee while developing a gift officer team, campaign communications, events, and peer-to-peer network growth of prospective individual donors and corporate and foundation institutional partners.

American Prairie, a freestanding Montana-based nonprofit, is a unique organization assembling a multi-million-acre area that conserves the species-rich grasslands on Montana’s legendary Great Plains for the enjoyment of future generations. When complete, American Prairie will span more than three million acres of private and public land, showcasing the iconic landscape that once dominated central North America and helped shape our national character. Its mission is to create one of the largest conservation areas in the United States that will serve as a refuge for people and wildlife, forever.

"We are on the threshold of an extraordinary opportunity to accelerate our vision, and you can be part of it. The Senior Director of Philanthropy is crucial to our continued success. I am seeking a deputy leader to partner with me as we grow, motivate, and develop our gift officer team and inspire our next generation of Board leaders and volunteers to achieve transformative philanthropic impacts for this campaign and beyond. I look forward to your application." — Samantha Beebout, Vice President and Chief Philanthropy Officer
