About the Role

The NhRP seeks a full-time Development Director to lead and implement comprehensive fundraising and development strategies to support our mission to secure rights for nonhuman animals. Reporting to the Chief Operating Officer, the ideal candidate has an established background cultivating many different types of nonprofit donors, coordinating a diverse portfolio of donation strategies, and working easily with board members, staff and volunteers.

About the Organisation

The Nonhuman Rights Project works to secure fundamental rights for nonhuman animals. Our groundbreaking work challenges an archaic, unjust legal status quo that views and treats all nonhuman animals as “things” with no rights. We work to achieve our mission in three ways:
(1) Litigation (changing the legal status quo and catalyzing a global conversation about how nonhuman animals are viewed and treated under the law);
(2) Legislation and Advocacy (building grassroots support at the local, national, and global levels and working to pass the first nonhuman rights laws in the US); and
(3) Education (raising awareness of the need and basis for nonhuman rights and providing resources to empower others to join the fight).
Our Vision
We envision a world where respect for freedom and dignity runs so deep that we don't hesitate to extend it to nonhuman animals and where we make decisions at all levels based on justice, scientific evidence, and the interconnectedness of life on earth.
