A united community of competent climbers and healthy climbing landscapes.
To support our shared passion for climbing and respect for the places we climb.
We provide knowledge and inspiration, conservation and advocacy, and logistical support for the climbing community
The AAC is America’s climbing club—and we want you to be part of it.
Later this year we are embarking on an exciting new chapter: a multi-million-dollar capital campaign that will take the AAC to new heights. The campaign will further develop our suite of programs (climbing education and public lands advocacy, for example) and fund our current strategic plan.
The new Director of Development will benefit from seven consecutive years of considerable growth in membership, fundraising, and donor development. Also, he/she will be challenged to accelerate forward momentum, successfully cultivate a growing base of member-donors, and manage organizational “growing pains.”
The Director of Development will be a dynamic leader and doer who is responsible for planning, organizing, and directing every element of AAC’s fundraising, including capital campaigns, the major gifts program, annual fund, planned giving, and special events. The Director will work closely with the CEO, Managing Director, and the Board of Directors in all development and fundraising endeavors.
The Development Director reports to the CEO and works closely with all staff as appropriate to meet department objectives.
