The mission of the Equity in Education Coalition (EEC) is to advance equity in education, foster civic engagement, and advocate for students and communities of color, native American, refugee and immigrant. Founded in 2012, the Equity In Education Coalition is Washington State’s largest coalition of stakeholders from communities of color and white allies who are striving to improve educational opportunities and outcomes for children of color.
Our Work Culture: We are highly dedicated to the important work of equity and racial justice, and strive to foster a caring, supportive and flexible work environment. We will be growing to five team members by the end of the summer.
We are seeking someone who excels in the world of development and fundraising, but will also excel in an organization whose culture embraces race-conscious conversations.
Future Development Manager
Over the past four years, EEC has had tremendous success raising funds through grants and foundation support. To advance EEC’s current strategic plan, however, we plan to add additional focus to individual donor and major gift cultivation. The new Development Manager will build, strengthen, and execute a robust engagement plan for prospecting, cultivating, and stewarding a wider range of foundations, as well as individual and major gift donors. The Development Manager will report to the Executive Director, and also work closely with the Board of Directors and other team members, including our Educational Projects Coordinator, Communications Coordinator and Community Outreach Coordinator.
This is a great opportunity for someone who wants not just a job, but an opportunity to empower communities of color and ensure an excellent education for the next generation children.
You will work closely with the Co-Founder and ED to grow the EEC. You will be challenged all the time, pushed to the limit, learn a ton of stuff, be on the cutting edge of equity and education work, have a lot of fun, be frustrated on occasion and inspired frequently, and make a huge difference.
Compensation and Benefits:
EEC is prepared to offer a competitive compensation package commensurate with candidate’s experience. Salary range for this position is $44,000-$50,000 per year, with opportunity for advancement during annual review. This position is exempt.
TO APPLY: Submit a cover letter and resume (both combined into ONE Word or PDF document) to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm 6/17/2016. If you advance to the interview stage, you will be asked for two writing samples, including at least one grant proposal.
