Position Description

World Monuments Fund (WMF) is the leading independent organization dedicated to saving the world’s most treasured places. Since 1965, WMF’s experts have been racing against time in more than 90 countries, applying proven techniques to preserve important architectural and cultural heritage sites around the globe. Through partnerships with local communities, funders, and governments, WMF inspires an enduring commitment to stewardship for future generations.

The Development Manager will lead efforts on a new initiative that will look beyond traditional arts and preservation funders to seek new donors who would be interested to learn of the social impact of WMF’s work around the world. In close collaboration with the Executive Vice President and the Vice President for Development, the ACLS Public Fellow will conduct research to demonstrate the relevancy of WMF’s work to those funding economic development programs in the developing world; write position papers, briefing materials, and proposals to tell a richer story of WMF’s global social impact; and participate in the cultivation strategy for these new funding streams.
