Database & Annual Giving Coordinator – Gathering Waters

Come work at Gathering Waters! We’re leaders in land conservation in Wisconsin and work to support over 40 nonprofit land trust organizations all across the state. We are a small yet mighty team doing our part to protect land and water in Wisconsin.

Are you a data, logistics, and tech person? Do you perform well when you’re “in the weeds” with numbers and putting a plan into action? This role will be lovingly referred to as the “mechanic”—ensuring all data is of the highest quality and that the database is working for us, assisting with mailings and other donor-communications, and analyzing and making recommendations on best practices and new technologies for our development (fundraising) team. This position will report to the Director of Philanthropy, and will work closely with our Annual Giving & Outreach Manager and other staff members.

Our goal is to find someone who excels at working with data and logistics, is eager to learn and stay up-to-date on best practices and opportunities for improvements, and also will understand their role as an ambassador to our various stakeholder groups including donors and land trust staff and board members. Entry-level candidates are encouraged to apply. We will offer training as needed.
