Falmouth Memorial Library is so excited to announce the creation of a new position - we're hiring for a Development Director to take our fundraising efforts to the next level!

Falmouth Memorial Library, in beautiful Falmouth, Maine, is seeking an enthusiastic, creative, and experienced full-time Development Director for our newly renovated library. This is an exciting opportunity to build upon the success of the Library's recent capital campaign to further engage the community and potential donors in securing a strong financial future. This is a new position, working closely with the Library Director, to lead an active all-volunteer Board of Trustees to create and implement a comprehensive fundraising strategy. The ideal candidate is a community connector & library ambassador, talented at relationship building, project management, and collaboration with key stakeholders.

The successful candidate will build upon the success of our existing Annual Fund campaign, individual cultivation and stewardship, and help to build out grants, fundraising events, and the fundraising database (Little Green Light) to increase giving to the Library to support its long-term fiscal health. As a 501(c)3 organization, Falmouth Memorial Library receives significant funding from the Town of Falmouth, but depends on growing funding from donations, grants, and fundraising events. The recent growth of our physical location has led to corresponding increases in overall operations budget and fundraising goals. We're looking for an enthusiastic, positive professional with a passion for libraries, eager to take our development program to the next level to secure our financial future.

The Development Director will coordinate with current programming staff for events, social media, and marketing campaigns to increase awareness of Library programs and services. They will report to the Library Director, and work closely with the Fundraising and Finance Committees of the Board of Trustees.

This exempt position is full-time, with pay at $70,000 per year, and includes excellent benefits - 15 paid holidays, 12 sick days, vacation leave, 100% employer paid health insurance premiums for individuals, and retirement benefits via MEPERS, as well as offering a 401(k) with up to a 4% employer match on employee contributions.

A full job description can be found on the Library website at To apply, please send a resume and cover letter to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>, no phone calls please. Review of applications will begin June 1 and continue until the position is filled.
