Major Gifts Officer: Catholic Leadership Institute


We see a world where each individual understands their God-given mission in life and is doing their best to fulfill it; a world where Catholic leaders are influential voices in society; a world where Jesus’ example of loving, servant leadership is modeled in every family, workplace, parish, and community.


Catholic Leadership Institute (CLI) provides bishops, priests, deacons, religious, and lay persons in the Roman Catholic Church with world-class, pastoral leadership formation and consulting services that strengthen their confidence and competence in ministry, enabling them to articulate a vision for their local church, to call forth the gifts of those they lead, and to create more vibrant faith communities rooted in Jesus Christ.


CLI is playing a critical role on behalf of the Roman Catholic Church of today and tomorrow. CLI is helping the Church to navigate generational shifts, to respond to and prepare for ever-mounting demographic challenges among ordained religious and the laity, to establish a near-term vision for the Church in the U.S., and to define an overall roadmap for the Church’s future. The organization is accompanying Catholic parishes, dioceses, and their leaders – from the seminarian to the seasoned bishop to lay leaders – on their journeys amid the complexities of the modern world, supporting them in meeting corresponding challenges and opportunities with the benefit of world-class training, fresh perspectives, and intentionality. CLI and its partners are indeed helping to build a future of hope for Catholic generations to come, one where the Church is not only sustaining but thriving with vibrant communities rooted in Jesus Christ.

As a result, the selected Major Gift Officer will be joining a growing and evolving team of individuals dedicated to our mission while expanding CLI’s reach, donor audiences, and available funding.

Creating new, upgrading, and managing current major donor relationships is a crucial piece of building our ambitious philanthropic efforts. This position will play an important role in this endeavor with faith, creativity, independence, and gratitude to all our friends.
