MIMA is looking for a part-time development associate reporting directly to the Executive Director to create and implement a fundraising strategy in central Virginia. Fundraising activities include but are not limited to business outreach (e.g. fundraising presentations, cold solicitation, fundraising event organization), individual donor outreach (e.g. in-person, social media, and email solicitation), and fundraiser organization. Some of these activities will take place in collaboration with partner organizations. A strong candidate will also be able to develop and implement a long-term strategy for increasing organizational awareness—and, in turn, fundraising outcomes—in the region.

Hours are flexible, determined primarily by the schedule of prospective donors. Compensation is on par with industry standard and dependent on the candidate’s level of experience.

Candidates will be evaluated primarily based on previous fundraising success, especially in central Virginia, familiarity with development strategies and tools, familiarity with potential donors in the region, oral and written communication skills, organization, self-directedness/independence, and effectiveness working in a team.
