Development Titles

blue rule

I’ve written about this before.

For contacts beyond your organization, I believe titles are important to the outside world. They provide status and help open doors.

I’ve just recorded three I prefer to the most often used: Director of Planned Gifts.

  • Charitable Gift Planner
  • Charitable Gift Counselor
  • Director of Donor Services

And I’m still a champion of Vice President for Philanthropy-— instead of Vice President for Development (or Advancement).

No nasty notes, please. But e-mail me with your thoughts and any suggestions you might have for titles.
