Fundraising Manager at Media Nonprofit (VOLUNTEER WORK FROM HOME OPPORTUNITY)

Are you personable, assertive, organized and able to motivate others?

At WhoWhatWhy, we have an opening for a Fundraising Development Manager.

We’re a nonprofit news organization that, in order to maintain our integrity, accepts no advertising. All of our funding comes from the public. That means fundraising. We are building a superior fundraising development team and now seek someone with strong people and organization skills to bring it all together.

The media nonprofit WhoWhatWhy is looking for gregarious, values-driven individuals to join our fundraising development team. You will oversee a team of individuals - who each work from their remote location - in the following areas: Salesforce non-profits CRM software administration, donor communications writer, grant writer, and corporate employee donation matching. The ideal candidate will be responsible for supervising and expanding the team dedicated to obtaining the funds we need to keep on growing and providing our unique services.

WhoWhatWhy is an unusual and radically different news organization - for a public equally tired of irresponsible "fake news" and of the establishment media’s pack mentality and limited curiosity. We hunt for those narratives that somehow never get told, identifying underlying causes of political crises and structural problems that, if addressed, could result in a better world for all.

If you’re looking for a meaningful volunteer opportunity, manage others well, and can commit 10 hours a week or more on a regular basis, we’d like to hear from you. We’ll immerse you in a dynamic startup environment where you will get hands-on experience making things happen. As we grow, and with it, our fundraising success, pro bono work may evolve into partially or fully compensated positions.

Familiarity with fundraising development is preferred, but we’re open to anyone with the general skills set and aptitude needed to keep any kind of team productive and headed in the right direction.

WhoWhatWhy is a great place to volunteer. We’re a friendly bunch, highly motivated to do meaningful work in the public interest, imparting honest information to a public starved for it. We all work from our home locations and communicate remotely.

To apply, send us your resume and a cover letter. Share why you are interested in volunteering with WhoWhatWhy and how you feel that you can add value - and assist in building an amazing and valuable enterprise for the common good.
