You’re excited to work on a team where you support projects focused on partnership-building among funders, major donor prospecting and research, and communications to engage donors. 
You describe yourself as having these skills and traits: 
  • Exceptional project management skills to juggle multiple deadlines and requests from senior staff and clients across multiple projects. 
  • Strong research, writing, editing, and formatting skills, and the ability to put the final “polish” on documents, presentations, and other deliverables for our clients. 
  • Attention to detail in all aspects of your work. 
  • Critical thinking skills to track, manage, and analyze data relating to charitable giving and global development. 
  • A desire to be a team contributor to meet the needs of clients in a fast-paced environment.
  • Hungry, humble, and people smart – ready to invest in yourself, our team, and our clients.
  • Enthusiasm for learning and career growth in the fields of philanthropy, fundraising, or communications. 
You have a bachelor’s degree and 2-5 years of professional experience. You’re skilled using Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and may also have used Publisher, InDesign, Salesforce, and project management platforms like Asana.
