The Institute for the Study and Practice of Nonviolence (ISPN) seeks to teach by word and example the principles and practices of nonviolence, and to foster a community that addresses potentially violent situations with nonviolent solutions. ISPN has helped to significantly lower violent crimes in the City of Providence, particularly youth violence. In 2009, the Institute was selected as Outstanding Philanthropic Organization by the RI Association of Fundraising Professionals.
Today ISPN seeks an experienced, creative and relentless fund development professional to bring
the organization’s fund development to the next level. The Director of Development will organize and
manage a centralized development office, and execute a comprehensive fund development plan. Areas
addressed in the plan include communications, capital/endowment campaign, grants, fundraisers and operating support. This position offers the right individual an opportunity to impact the future of a vibrant and critical community organization.
