Help build the resources to advance our environmental protections across the state of California.
We are hiring for a Donor Development Associate to help build the resources to advance our environmental protections across the state of California.
Every day, we see more heartbreaking evidence of the damage being done to our planet: climate change, plastic pollution, wildlife disappearing forever. But we also see the solutions all around us: solar and wind power, electric cars and buses, more walkable and “bikeable” cities, reusing and repairing stuff instead of throwing it away… the list goes on. Thousands of Environment California members feel passionately about these issues, and as our Donor Associate, you would meet with members of Environment California to share more about our work, make their voices heard, and raise money to fund our work to protect wildlife, reduce plastic pollution, address the climate crisis, and more.
You’ll be part of the in-state advocacy team as well as part of our national team of dedicated development professionals that deepen the financial and political support of members of Environment California and other groups in The Public Interest Network.
The ideal candidate is passionate about protecting nature, believes in the power of building a community of supporters, and is a proven fundraiser who sees fundraising as a powerful way to advance change.
