    Director of Planned Giving

    Catholic Extension

    Since 1905 Catholic Extension has been providing funding and resources to poor communities across the U.S. With the generosity of individual donors and local and national foundations, we raise funds to help these poor, forgotten and often isolated communities flourish. Annually, Catholic Extension supports over 1,200 programs and projects throughout the U.S., for a total of approximately $20 million in funding.  We invest in:

    • MINISTRIES by supporting pastoral, youth, young adult, campus and outreach ministries, Catholic schools and religious education.
    • LEADERS for the Church by providing education, training and support to seminarians, priests, sisters, deacons and lay leaders.
    • BUILDINGS by supporting the construction and renovation of churches and church facilities.

    We’re in search of a Director of Planned Giving who will oversee one of Catholic Extension’s strongest fundraising programs with almost $10 million in annual realized bequest intentions, a legacy donor society of more than 1,300 members and a gift annuity program totaling more than $30 million. Overall, Catholic Extension raises $25 million annually from 30,000 donors.


    Reporting to the Assistant Vice President of Development, this role will:

    • Be a senior leader on the 20+ member development team within a mature program.
    • Maintain a comprehensive understanding of Catholic Extension’s regional and national funding initiatives in order to articulate the organization’s mission and special initiatives.
    • Coordinate the execution of Catholic Extension’s overall planned giving strategy leveraging all resources across the entire development team.
    • Engage with new prospective planned gift donors through visits, phone calls, personalized mailings and stewardship, using a moves management system.

    Catholic Extension is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
