Start your night off with a tasty cocktail, mocktail or glass of pinot, bid on some incredible silent auction items before the live auction begins, and schmooze with other movers and shakers who support science and our public lands.
Don't forget: Slide on a pair of mud boots with your favorite suit or pull out the gowns and gaiters for a night you'll always remember. Because this is no ordinary gala. This is Boots & Bow Ties!
The Development Director (DD) creates and implements strategies to build authentic relationships with and solicit support from individual donors, foundations, and corporations. This includes establishing systems and creative strategies for donor identification, cultivation, solicitation, tracking, acknowledgment, recognition, events, and donor stewardship. Reporting to the Executive Director (ED) and in partnership with MSHI’s leadership team and Board of Directors, the DD assumes an essential role in helping to develop the strategic direction and overall management of the organization while exercising a significant degree of independent decision-making within the development realm. Importantly, the DD will help lead and evolve with MSHI during a period of significant growth, while promoting a positive and progressive work environment in alignment with the Institute’s mission, values, strategic plan, and policies.
As changes occur in our everyday lives, so does the life that surrounds us. We cycle through different stages, build new relationships, say goodbye to others, and life perseveres onward. This same idea applies to the ecosystems around us. Throughout the changing seasons, from spring to summer, and into autumn, we can put our own life changes on pause to reflect on the changes occurring around us. The life that flourishes around Mount St. Helens is ever-changing, a reminder that nothing on Earth, not even the Pearly, is Everlasting.
