The Texas Public Charter Schools Association seeks a Director of Donor Relations to advance the Association’s mission by implementing a comprehensive major gift donor relations and stewardship program.


The Texas Public Charter Schools Association (TPCSA) is committed to ensuring every child in Texas has access to a high-quality public school that will set them on the path to future success.

TPCSA’s mission is to support and advocate for public charter schools to ensure every family has the ability to choose a high-quality public school. We are committed to informing the public and policymakers about the value of charter schools and advancing policies that will enable public charter schools to serve students well. We work closely with Charter Schools Now (CSN), a 501(c)(4).


The Director of Donor Relations will work alongside the Chief of Staff to advance the mission of the Texas Public Charter Schools Association and Charter Schools Now. This position will plan and lead our major gifts program with the goal of raising $3M annually.

The Director of Donor Relations will work creatively to secure meetings with major donors and will create and deliver a powerful and persuasive case for support. This position will foster relationships with major donors, steward long-term major donor relationships, and be responsible for consistent, accurate, and appropriate information-sharing mechanisms for stewarding major gifts.

The Director of Donor Relations will be the sole full-time staff member dedicated to fundraising but will have support from a development consultant and a part-time Project Manager.

A successful candidate will possess strong written and verbal communication skills, be a self-starter who thrives in a fast-paced, rapidly-changing environment, hold high standards for work and embrace accountability for meeting targets.


TPCSA offers a competitive salary for this position, dependent on qualifications. All full-time employees are offered health insurance, including medical, dental, vision, life insurance, and a matching plan for 401k contributions.
