The East Bay Alliance for a Sustainable Economy (EBASE) in Oakland, CA is hiring a dynamic fundraiser to join our team! The Development Manager will help lead our grant writing and also help oversee our fundraising component in partnership with the development team.
EBASE’s Development Manager will coordinate multiple fundraising functions, with a particular focus on foundation grants to grow our annual $1.7 million budget. They will lead foundation fundraising, individual, and grassroots fundraising; annual event fundraising; and the database. They will work closely with the Executive Director to build relationships and respond to emerging foundation grant opportunities, and collaborate with program, finance, and communications staff to project our work, document our victories, and fundraise our annual budget.
We're looking for candidates who have 5+ years of foundation fundraising experience with excellent written and verbal communication skills, and ideally those with experience fundraising for social justice organizations and causes.
Applications are due September 1, 2017, and the position is open until filled. Salary is dependent upon experience, and EBASE offers a generous benefits package. EBASE is an affirmative action employer, and strongly supports the social goals of affirmative action. We therefore make special efforts to recruit individuals from groups that are historically under-represented in professional environments, or that suffer from broader societal discrimination.
