Chief Development Officer, Camp Corral

Camp Corral, one of the nation’s leading organizations serving military families, seeks a dynamic and entrepreneurial Chief Development Officer to lead the organization in achieving its ambitious fundraising goals for the future.  Founded in 2010 as an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit by the restaurant chain Golden Corral’s Co-Founder James Maynard and his daughter Easter, Camp Corral transforms the lives of children of wounded, injured, ill, and fallen military heroes by providing a unique and free week-long summer camp experience.  Children, ages 8 to 15, can be kids, far away from the day-to-day challenges they face as children of military service members and veterans.  To date, more than 24,000 children have been served through its proven and successful model and the organization is committed to serving more children, at more camps, in more states.

Reporting to the CEO and supervising the Director of Annual Giving, the Chief Development Officer will be a creative, fundraising leader with drive, determination and a team spirit who is just as talented at building an effective and diversified fundraising program as they are at raising significant dollars from individuals, corporations and foundations.  The Golden Corral restaurants and Disabled American Veterans play a major role in providing annual support.  The Chief Development Officer will build on their support with a national expanded donor base.

This is a wonderful opportunity to take a fundraising program to new levels of success while giving back to the military and veteran families who have given so much to our country.
