The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) is one of the nation’s most effective environmental action organizations. We use law, science, and the support of some 2.4 million members and activists to protect human health and the environment which supports it, as well as the planet’s wildlife and wild places. Founded in 1970, NRDC staff helped write some of America’s bedrock environmental laws. Today, our staff of nearly 600 passionate environmental advocates – including lawyers, scientists, economists, policy and communications experts, the development team and others – work to protect and create environmental progress at home and abroad from offices in New York; Washington, DC; Chicago; Los Angeles; San Francisco; Bozeman, Montana; and Beijing.
Under the direction of the National Director of Donor Relations and Special Projects, the Director of Special Projects, New York, directs all fundraising events in the New York region, including large and small-scale fundraising events, cultivation and stewardship events. NRDC has a track-record of producing highly successfully and high-profile events in the New York area with the support of a robust community of donors, trustees, and other strategic partners. The Director will also participate in the planning and execution of national events, as needed. In addition, the Director oversees regional donor engagement activities like volunteer leadership groups, travel programs, and other special projects as needed and in accordance with both the national and regional strategic framework.
