The California Association of Food Banks (CAFB) is proud to amplify the voice of food banks on behalf of hungry Californians. We do this by influencing public policy, enhancing the social safety net, ensuring that fresh produce and healthy proteins are available to all Californians, connecting hungry residents with nutrition programs, and supporting our 41-member food banks in their work to feed our communities.

The California Association of Food Banks believes that food is a fundamental right. Food is medicine; it is fuel for learning, a teacher of cultures, and a convener of communities. Currently, 8 million Californians are food insecure, nearly double pre-pandemic rates. We’re working to change that.

We seek to reflect the diversity of California on our team and how we do business. We aim to attract, develop, retain, and promote a talented and diverse workforce in a culture where all employees will contribute to their fullest potential. Our workplace values dedication, inclusion, collaboration, transparency, and accountability.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for an innovative and energetic Development Communications Manager with experience in digital and print communications to develop and deliver critical messages, ensure consistency and continuity, and reinforce the mission and goals of CAFB, with strong skills in all areas of traditional fundraising, including major gifts, grant seeking, sponsorships, and other sources of funds to build solid and sustainable philanthropic support for CAFB. The Manager will have strong oral and written communication skills, experience with social media and technology, and experience fundraising in a nonprofit environment.

The Development Communications Manager reports to the Director of Development on the planning, management, and execution of all CAFB fundraising initiatives and donor communications. This role helps build, maintain, and steward CAFB donors and members, plan and implement development-focused communications, and oversee gift processing, data management, and reporting. The organization currently raises $3 million annually, and significant growth in these programs is planned, guided by a robust strategic plan.

What success looks like—

The ideal candidate will bring strong communication, marketing, and interpersonal skills, excellent project management, and an understanding of how to use analytics to inform strategies and improve performance. A successful candidate will understand how their work fits into the larger anti-hunger movement, be collaborative, detail-oriented, resourceful, and approach the work with humility, a willingness to learn from experiences, and a focus on customer service. This is an excellent opportunity to be part of an expanding fundraising program and work with a dynamic, passionate team.
