Job Center

Development Officer

There is no more important work than to improve the life of a child.

If you have passion, a desire to meet people and help them change the world—you can. If you have the skills to connect with others, are well organized and looking for a way to make a difference—come to work at Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch.

The Ranch is a residential treatment and educational center for youth and their families, a place where we look the most troubled, complex and amazing kids in the eye, walk with them and help them become their best selves in this world and in Christ. Because the Ranch helps the kids that no one else can, we provide unparalleled care, expertise and presence in the name of Christ to keep today’s troubled kids from becoming tomorrow’s troubled adults. We’ve been around since 1952 and plan to be around to serve many generations to come.

Over one-third of the services we provide to the children in our care are purely donor supported. Fundraising is a critical component in meeting these amazing kids’ needs. We are currently recruiting a Development Officer (either based out of Fargo, ND, or Bismarck, ND) to raise financial, prayer and advocacy support for important services. You must love to meet people, listen to their stories, hopes, and goals; and develop ongoing stewardship relationships.

Three years of fundraising experience is preferred. Sales experience may be helpful. Technical literacy is a must, and familiarity with Raiser’s Edge and RENXT would be a real advantage. Bachelor’s degree or greater is also preferred. Travel requirements are about 50% time.
