Some of this work will be remote for a period of time due to COVID-19.
We are looking for someone dynamic, energetic, and engaging to take on a role that relies on the strength of relationships and building connections. As part of the Engagement Department, the Development Specialist will work with the Fundraising, Data and Digital Departments to communicate with supporters and move them up the ladder of engagement with an emphasis on recurring gifts.
This work requires a people-person–someone who takes pleasure in speaking with our supporters and building stronger relationships through mutual dedication to our goals. Our supporters care a lot, and to get the most out of this role, we need someone who cares a lot as well, and likes talking to folks about it!
The Specialist is the principal conduit in which all relevant recurring gift communications are handled. Reporting to the Head of Engagement and Lead Development Officer, the Development Specialist will work closely with key external constituents –members, stakeholders, elected officials–to develop a strategy for increasing the organization’s capacity for overall fundraising with a particular focus on the recurring gifts program. This role is integral to the ONDP in meeting its development and fundraising objectives.
