About the Role 

The Shames JCC is looking for a Development Associate to support the Director of Institutional Advancement in building an intentional, organized, and strategic development shop. We are looking for someone who has exceptional attention to detail, a strong sense of customer service, and can proactively problem solve and take initiative to create systems where historically there haven’t been.

Ensure the accuracy of donor information and generate reports as appropriate. Proactively seek out ways to enhance our (currently minimal) tracking systems.
• Grant tracking/editing/preparing: Track and manage grant application and report deadlines. Monitor grant performance on success metrics. Collect language primarily from other existing grants to draft and support proposal submissions.
• Prospect Research: Research current and identify new potential individuals, foundations, and corporations who might have an interest in supporting the JCC (or already do but we need more information).
• Donor Relations: Maintain warm, friendly relationships with donors and partners. Have general curiosity about motivations for giving and manage up to support donor engagement where appropriate.
• Board Relations Support: Supports board relations, including composing and processing board correspondence; creating and maintaining board files and reports as appropriate; scheduling meetings and conference calls, and taking meeting minutes. Other duties as assigned.
• Write email appeals and other written donor engagements/appeals (plus)
• Grant Proposal and Report Writing (plus): Draft new grant narratives by working collaboratively with program team/s to gather information and prepare solid drafts of grant proposals. Work with program teams to understand how deliverables were met and draft grant interim and final reports.
