The Brookings Institution is a nonpartisan think tank based in Washington, D.C. Its mission is to conduct in-depth research that leads to new ideas for solving problems facing society at the local, national, and global levels.

At a time when leaders in business and government lurch from crisis to crisis, Brookings' experts find practical solutions to public policy challenges simmering around the world. With national and global events unfolding at a remarkable speed, the sound thinking and data-based approach that Brookings' experts bring to the table are more important than ever before. Bringing its work to key audiences - in the United States and around the world - is an essential part of Brookings' mission.

The Institution traces its beginnings to 1916, when a group of leading reformers founded the Institute for Government Research (IGR), the first private organization devoted to analyzing public policy issues at the national level.

To fulfill its mission today, Brookings brings together more than 300 leading experts in government and academia from all over the world who provide the highest quality research, policy recommendations, and analysis on a full range of public policy issues. Its research agenda and recommendations are rooted in open-minded inquiry and represent diverse points of view.

The Vice President for Development (VPD) provides philanthropic strategy, vision, leadership and guidance to the President and the Institution and serves as the catalyst for enabling Brookings to achieve its financial goals. The VPD will help Brookings to support its research and programmatic activities through solicitation of new, ongoing and sustainable sources of private funds.

The VPD will enhance efforts to generate significant gifts from individuals, corporations, foundations, and other organizations and will ensure that all areas of the development operation are strategically organized and managed to achieve maximum success.

Reporting to the President, s/he will serve on the senior management team, lead a team of approximately 15 employees and must be able to oversee and navigate a decentralized development operation.
