Living The Pro-Life Calling, Hand-in-Hand with Mothers & Their Babies
Aid for Women is seeking a Development Associate to boost our growing organization’s efforts to better communicate with and solicit our donor base. This new full‐time position with benefits will provide support to senior staff on fundraising tasks, complete important donor cultivation steps and potentially take on their own basket of donor contacts to develop relationships with.
The ideal candidate will have a year or more professional experience in an office environment (not necessarily in a fundraising role) as well as an engaging personality for interactions with other staff, donors, and prospective donors. He or she should be highly skilled at managing priorities and problem solving independently and should be highly adept at building professional relationships in a variety of communication media (written correspondence, phone calls and in‐person meetings). Candidate must possess a passionate commitment to Aid for Women’s vision and mission, which include a strong commitment to pro-life and sexual integrity values.
Due to the urgency of Aid for Women’s mission and the importance of personal contact for our work, significant in‐state travel and evening/weekend hours will be required, especially for special events. As Aid for Women has an “all hands on deck” culture where all employees pitch in during major events and initiatives, flexibility and adaptability are key to the position. The Development Associate will report directly to the Executive Director.
