Membership & Development Director

This is a unique opportunity for a talented fundraising professional to join a dynamic, passionate, mission-driven team. The Membership & Development Director will be part of a leadership team tasked with guiding the implementation of a three-year strategic plan focused on expanding the organization’s impact. This exciting time in Bicycle Colorado’s history offers a curious, results-oriented, entrepreneurial, values-driven fundraising professional a chance to shape and lead the donation and membership giving programs, as well as the sponsorship and business development opportunities that are essential components to achieving the team’s goals. 

The Membership & Development Director will work closely with the Executive Director to build and implement a fundraising strategy that will yield a steady stream of revenue from major donors that includes individuals, foundations, and companies to achieve Bicycle Colorado’s fundraising goals. This person will also directly manage the Membership Manager to grow Bicycle Colorado’s membership revenue. 

The Membership & Development Director will also liaise with board members as needed, and will be a public face of Bicycle Colorado at events and community meetings. Finally, with support from a volunteer committee and the team, this person will lead Bicycle Colorado’s annual spring fundraiser, Gear-Up!

Bicycle Colorado is a highly collaborative team. As such, the Membership & Development Director will work closely with the policy, education and communications teams. 

The position requires frequent travel across the front range, and occasionally to other parts of the state. Some evening and weekend work is also required.

Position open until filled.

We’re thrilled to see so many people out enjoying (and often rediscovering the joy of) riding a bike right now, and we’re asking ALL bicyclists to do their part to prevent the spread of #covid19 by wearing a mask or other face covering when out for a ride. Doing so keeps you, your loved ones, those around you, and all Coloradans safer while helping reduce stress on our medical system. If you still need a mask, click the link in our bio to pre-order one now and support our advocacy work! Thanks so much to everyone who has already purchased, and to @primalwear for supporting our efforts over the years. Ride on.
  • #BicycleColorado volunteers and staff members spent time today helping @denverurbangardens and @denverfoodrescue deliver “Grow a Garden” food boxes to home-bound families in Denver—via bike! Supporting our community on two wheels makes for a great way to spend a sunny day. Many thanks to our friends @ddchen47, David M., and @juggernautcargo for your help! Head to denverfoodrescue.org or dug.org to learn more about these great local organizations. #rideyourbike
  • Tonight the #BicycleColorado team celebrated Stacey, our outgoing Development Director, with a virtual happy hour. Stacey has been an absolute rockstar for BC. We’re sad to see her leave, but thrilled for her as she heads out on a new adventure (hopefully in the #BikeAdvocacy space!) in North Carolina. Please join us in wishing her well!
