ABOUT THE POSITION
Since 1984, Share Our Strength has led the fight against hunger and poverty by inspiring an organizing individuals and businesses to share their strengths. Today, through the No Kid Hungry and Cooking Matters campaigns, Share Our Strength is ending childhood hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need. No child should go hungry in America—we’re on our way to making that a reality and we want you to join us. We’re bold, creative, always open to new ideas, and 100% dedicated to our mission. If that sounds like you, we’d like to consider becoming part of our team.
The Development Associate collaborates with the Director of Development, Mid-Atlantic to manage all aspects of the cultivation and stewardship of major and principal donors in the Mid-Atlantic region. The Associate deepens relationships across a defined major gift portfolio (through personal outreach and communications), to increase retention and long-term value of these donor segments, and to identify prospects for continued stewardship through the major gift pipeline. As Share Our Strength hosts events post-pandemic, this position will support the Mid-Atlantic team with multiple events throughout the year including the annual DC No Kid Hungry Dinner and smaller market events. This position’s role will focus on donor outreach and stewardship as well as some administrative support.
