The Marshall Project, the Pulitzer Prize-winning nonprofit media organization covering criminal justice, has hired Shaunice Jordan as its new major gifts officer.
Jordan will lead the research, relationship-building and outreach to major donors in the New York City area and beyond. In this role, she will work closely with Marshall Project President Carroll Bogert and senior leaders to raise six- and seven-figure gifts for the organization. She will report directly to Chief Development Officer Elizabeth Seuling.
“Passionate about our mission, Shaunice comes to us with extensive fundraising experience. Shaunice will serve as a key fundraiser for The Marshall Project, leading outreach to new and current donors,” Seuling said. “I’m delighted to welcome Shaunice to the team.”
Jordan joins The Marshall Project from Consumer Reports where she held a number of roles during her six years there, including annual gift officer. In that role, she led the cultivation, stewardship and solicitation of a portfolio of more than 300 donors and prospects with goals of raising five- to seven-figure gifts. Jordan experienced career highlights at Consumer Reports by surpassing her fundraising goal by $3 million in her first year and supporting a feasibility study for a $12 million capital campaign.
Prior to that, Jordan was a manager of individual giving and special events at The 52nd Street Project, a nonprofit theater arts organization that serves children in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan. While there, she planned and managed fundraising events, including a large-scale gala, and helped build a major donor program.
“I am thrilled to join this dynamic team at The Marshall Project. I look forward to sharing our work with new audiences in an effort to create lasting impact,” said Jordan.
Jordan’s first day with The Marshall Project is Aug. 7.
