IS THIS FOR YOU?
- Do you have a track record of producing compelling fundraising event experiences on a budget?
- Are you motivated by the challenge of increasing community awareness of a non-profit home care agency with an impressive 40-year history – but that seems to be Arlington’s best-kept secret?
- Do you thrive in a small-team setting, working closely with your manager and with staff from other departments?
- Are you equally comfortable performing analytical/administrative tasks at your desk or public relations activities in person and by telephone?
Helping Restore Ability is the largest non-profit provider of in-home care services in Texas. We’re also increasingly known for inter-industry partnerships that advance innovative research and excellence in the home care industry at large. Recent examples include providing input to Texas legislators on proposed legislation to ensure timely payment to home care providers; our internship program for local university students; and our input to a university-based team that’s developing robotic prosthetics. (How cool is that!)
Great non-profits need great Development staff, and that’s where you come in! As a key member of a small team, you’ll use your proven marketing skills to promote the agency’s brand through hardcopy mass mailings, email, social media, and in person at awareness and fundraising events. You’ll report to and work closely with the Chief Development Officer (CDO) to create marketing materials and produce stellar fundraising events. You’ll support the CDO in identifying and pursuing grant opportunities that will fund our operating expenses and allow us to expand. Your communications and interpersonal skills will be crucial in expanding existing donor relationships, and following up on new relationships resulting from awareness events. You’ll be responsible for certain administrative tasks, including donor database management, recordkeeping, and producing reports. And as a team player in an environment where every person’s efforts impact the entire office, you’ll support agency operations by opening and distributing the daily mail. (Hey, it’s a fun opportunity to get a change of scenery and say hello to coworkers in other departments.) If this sounds like the kind of environment in which you truly thrive, we want to hear from you!
