Civil War Trust

The Civil War Trust is America's largest non-profit organization devoted to the preservation of our nation's endangered Civil War battlefields. The Trust also promotes educational programs and heritage tourism initiatives to inform the public of the war's history and the fundamental conflicts that sparked it.

Development Associate for Major Donors / Events
Professional Opportunity
Washington, DC, DC

A few questions: Do you love raising money? No, seriously Ė do your friends think youíre strange because of how much you love raising money? How about events experience? We put on world-class events; think you can handle the pressure? Finally, do you have a real passion for saving Americaís history by saving endangered Civil War battlefields? You wonít succeed here without that, Iím just telling you.

We recently launched a $40 million capital campaign, and we seek a Development Associate who loves building relationships and cultivating major ($5,000+) gifts, while helping to put on several major events per year. Previous non-profit fundraising / events planning experience preferred, but we sometimes hire outside the box, for the right person.

Position is based at our downtown DC national HQ; some travel required (25-35%). Qualities sought, in this order: Exceptional work ethic, incredible initiative, polished professionalism, copious creativity, superior entrepreneurial spirit, crazy computer skills (all Microsoft Office programs), and the ability to perform as part of a highly functioning and collegial team as well as in one-on-one situations with little or no supervision. Oh, and attention to detail. Experience with Raiserís Edge will give you an edge. Great benefits. Good pay and immortality await.
