• Maintain regular communication with donors and prospects
 
We are looking for someone who has: 
• Two years of development/fundraising experience
• Written at least 5 grant proposals
• Ability to manage a large body of work, attending to both details and the bigger picture. 
• Ability to supervise and support interns and volunteers
• Proficiency in basic computer programs: Microsoft Word, Excel, databases
