The Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI® Inc.) stands for the future of forests.
An independent, non-profit organization, SFI (http://www.sfiprogram.org/) provides supply chain assurances, produces conservation outcomes, and supports education and community engagement in collaboration with the forest sector, brand owners, conservation groups, resource professionals, landowners, educators, local communities, Indigenous peoples, governments, and universities.
In 2017, SFI expanded its educational programs through the acquisition of Project Learning Tree (PLT) https://www.plt.org/, which helps develop students’ awareness, knowledge, and appreciation of the environment. With the addition of PLT, SFI has grown in size, scope, and budget, and it is taking this moment of growth as a deliberate opportunity to expand its fundraising program across the board.
SFI seeks an experienced and talented Director of Development who can design, build, and continuously enhance a comprehensive fundraising program that generates $1.5M to support PLT and SFI’s broader goals. Reporting to the Chief Education Officer, the Director of Development will work closely with the President and CEO, Chief Operating Officer, Chief Conservation Officer, VP of Community Engagement, VP of Communications, and other staff to design and carry out an ambitious development strategy and to build a culture of philanthropy within SFI to support it.
