Location: Cambridge, Massachusetts

Position Summary: More than just a job, this is an opportunity to play a high-impact role and make a significant contribution in our fight to find a cure for kids with A-T and to bring hope to their families.
We are looking for a full-time Fundraising Coordinator to join our team of four employees. The ideal candidate will be a proactive, high-energy individual who is detail oriented and has strong interpersonal and communication skills. The successful applicant must be able to work under pressure, managing concurrent projects in a fast-paced environment, while having a willingness and flexibility to lend a hand on projects big and small. The coordinator will manage our endurance events, other peer-to-peer fundraising programs, and volunteer-led events around the country from beginning to end, including: creating content for our web pages and flyers, sending recruitment emails, creating events on various on-line platforms; answering questions from potential participants, volunteers, and donors; reaching out to prior participants; coaching fundraisers; and, managing event logistics. The candidate will also be involved in other fundraising, awareness-generating and administrative activities such as donor relations, processing donations, social media postings, and other projects as needed. Because the A-T Children's Project is a relatively small, national organization, the candidate will be exposed to all aspects of nonprofit management.
