Development Director

Mayhew Program

Fifty-three years strong, Mayhew challenges and helps at-risk New Hampshire boys to believe in themselves, work well with others, and find their best.  Over 200 boys are served annually with a transformative summer experience and school-year mentoring.  It is tuition-free for the boys and the staff are dedicated to providing them with vibrant support.  

Matching the boys with an ever more responsive and meaningful program requires a true and total team effort by the staff, the Board and Mayhew’s family of contributors and friends.

With an annual budget of $1.42 million, over 70% comes from charitable contributions, Mayhew has built an endowment of over $5.7 million and has recently completed a $630,000 capital improvements campaign.

Mayhew seeks an individual who believes fervently in its mission and work and is eager to share with others the power of its support for the boys and the vital role financial contributions play in keeping Mayhew tuition-free and strong for them.  This individual knows the importance of nurturing and stewarding existing relationships while working diligently, creatively and energetically in developing new ones that build Mayhew’s visibility and strengthen its impact. Excellent in relationship building and fundraising execution, the Development Director will monitor, measure, and report on all aspects of the development program.  Mission driven and team-oriented, the individual will be someone who works well and happily in a small organization; and who has the humor and grace to manage many relationships, tasks, and challenges.  We are looking for a patient leader, a team player, and an excellent colleague.
