Dear Ms. Townsend:

The requirements you outline in the Chronicle of Philanthropy for a director of donor development closely match my background and abilities. Until December I was Director of Development in the Graduate School of Social Work at the University of Denver.

Although I've enjoyed a successful career in fundraising and have found the last several years intellectually stimulating and financially rewarding, I've decided to change direction slightly and put my skills and experience to work in areas more directly related to human and social service. Those skills include:

Strategic planning;

Major gifts cultivation and solicitation;

Planned giving;

Special events;

Community relations including public speaking, recruiting, training;

Writing and publishing.

I have enclosed my resume for your review. I am available at your convenience for an interview, and will look forward to an opportunity to discuss my credentials in more detail.

Best regards,

Skip Haley
