Development Associate

Part-time, $20/hour 5 hours/week

The Nebraska Writers Collective, a 501(c)(3) non-profit in Omaha, is looking to immediately hire a Development Associate to assist with all aspects of fundraising.

Responsibilities include working with the Development Director to:

  • Maintain and run queries on the eTapestry donor database client;
  • Research prospective donors, corporations, and foundations;
  • Gather information for grant proposals and reports;
  • Help plan and execute events;
  • Help manage membership and volunteer programs;
  • Pitch in with day-to-day administrative tasks; and
  • Work with a Development Intern who will assist with all of these tasks

Development experience is preferred but not necessary. We need someone who can work consistently, independently, and proactively, contributing effort but also ideas. This would be a terrific opportunity for someone interested in a development career, or for someone with more experience to do meaningful work in our community on their schedule.

Hours are extremely flexible, averaging five per week. Most work can be done from home, either independently or collaborating electronically with other staff members.
To apply and schedule an interview, please submit a brief cover letter and a resume or CV including references to NWC Development Director Tracy Baker at tracy@newriters.org.
