Safe Crossings Foundation

Development Director

The Opportunity- A Little About Safe Crossings Foundation
Safe Crossings Foundation is dedicated to helping grieving children who have lost a parent, sibling, or other loved one heal and thrive. For thirty years, the foundation has funded proven and new programs around the region that each have a profound impact on the healing process of bereaved kids in our community. While continuing to invest in our tried-and-true partner organizations, we also strive to identify gaps and reach even more children who wouldn’t otherwise be able to find support. In addition, our annual Northwest Conference on Childhood Grief gives providers working directly with grieving children a unique opportunity to build community, share ideas, and learn together.

SCF’s generous donors partner with us to fulfill to our vision that all families and children have access to grief programs at little or no cost. Now, as we look ahead to our fourth decade of service to the community, we are looking for a creative, dynamic, committed development leader to help fulfill our five-year strategic vision to double our capacity to serve grieving children and teens throughout the Puget Sound region.

As an organization, we know our success depends on each employee’s success. We work to create and foster an environment of respect, appreciation, and acceptance for everyone who becomes part of our Safe Crossings Foundation family. We are a small team but a mighty one who cares deeply about our mission, delivering on our commitments, and at the same time, having fun and enjoying a flexible work place. Our board members are highly skilled, committed and engaged. We enjoy and are grateful to have such a collaborative partnership.
