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.

This one comes from Jenny and Stan S.: “We went with 2 neighbors to Utah prior to the lockdown for solitary bike and hiking. Photos of blue/green MTB trail in Dead Horse State Park. The trails were empty and dry. The visitor center had too many people for my comfort. Later Utah visitor centers closed. Mercifully, most  bathrooms remained open.

We traveled with bleach spray, wipes, gloves, buffs, raincoats (to wear indoors!). We ate inside our car and motel room. PBJ and frozen turkey pot pies.”
