Our New York office is looking for our next Director in the Wall Street Division to significantly grow financial support for AIPAC and pro-Israel candidates. Directors make a direct impact on strengthening the U.S.-Israel relationship in three ways: 1) by cultivating and increasing the political commitments of existing AIPAC members and 2) by increasing the financial support to AIPAC from existing members and 3) by inspiring pro-Israel Americans to join as significant financial supporters of AIPAC, including directly supporting pro-Israel Members of Congress and candidates. A successful Director has a proven track record in sales, client relations, political fundraising, or another field that showcases your ability to build strong relationships, close deals, and grow revenue.

The Director will be measured against effective execution of the following tasks and responsibilities:

  • Create and execute a development plan aimed at increasing support for pro-Israel political candidates and growing AIPAC’s revenue through high level solicitations, donor cultivation and stewardship
  • Build and sustain strong, personal relationships with current high-level donors in your portfolio and inspire them to increase their investment in our work to strengthen the U.S.-Israel relationship.
  • Identify, cultivate, and solicit new donors in the financial sector to commit significant resources toward pro-Israel candidates and AIPAC.
  • Solicit current AIPAC donors to fulfill their political commitments on behalf of pro-Israel candidates and Members of Congress
  • Meet quarterly and annual retention, upgrade and acquisition goals for pro-Israel politics and AIPAC
  • Identify, recruit and develop lay leadership for local political leadership roles
  • Provide timely political and policy updates that inform and inspire people to become more involved in pro-Israel politics and AIPAC
  • Maintain and update Salesforce CRM to ensure the most accurate and timely information is included including campaign projects and logging individual activities/communications, and meetings.


  • Intense passion for a strong U.S.-Israel relationship, as well as knowledge of issues related to Israel, the Middle East and American politics
  • A minimum of 5 years work experience in political fundraising/sales/fundraising or a related field with a successful track record of achieving and exceeding goals
  • Exceptional people skills and the ability to form close, personal relationships with current and prospective AIPAC members
  • Work efficiently under pressure; meet deadlines; demonstrate strategic thinking and good decision-making, as well as an entrepreneurial spirit
  • An understanding and appreciation for AIPAC’s bipartisan, single-issue approach
  • Self-motivated and highly driven and able to work independently, in addition to working with your colleagues to meet goals and objectives
  • Work experience or strong knowledge of the financial sector is a plus
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Experience with Salesforce CRM, Outreach.io or other similar tools are a plus
  • Bachelor's degree preferred or commensurate experience
