Does your development director want to quit?

Fundraising magnet

Fundraising jobs can be hard to fill. Staff in this area often turn over at a high rate, and chief executives frequently express frustration at a lack of growth in fundraising.

The chaos in development staffing is highlighted by a recent study by Compasspoint. Key findings from the study:
  • Half the development directors surveyed said they expect to leave their current jobs in two years or less.
  • One in four CEOs reported that their previous development director was fired.
  • More than half of the executives surveyed said their most recent development director search did not produce enough candidates with the right mix of skills and experience.
