Job Description

Scientists and students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology founded the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) in 1969. That year, the Vietnam War was at its height and Cleveland’s heavily polluted Cuyahoga River had caught fire. Appalled at how the U.S. government was misusing science, the UCS founders drafted a statement calling for scientific research to be directed away from military technologies and toward solving pressing environmental and social problems.


The organization remains true to that founding vision. Throughout its history, UCS has followed the example set by the scientific community: It shares information, seeks the truth, and lets its findings guide its conclusions. It’s a powerful formula.


By mobilizing scientists and combining their voices with those of advocates, educators, business people, and other concerned citizens, UCS has built a reputation for fairness and accuracy and amassed an impressive history of accomplishments.


The Director of Planned Giving is the ideal opportunity for an experienced frontline planned giving officer to join the leading national science-based advocacy organization. The ideal candidate will be well-versed in the technical and legal aspects of planned giving and complex giving assets, as well as possess a demonstrated ability to build relationships with donors and prospects that lead to planned gifts. The successful candidate will be at home in a fast-paced, collaborative, and intellectually stimulating advocacy environment, and be a skillful and personable manager, mentor, and leader.
