Launched in 2020, the Abundance Strategies Fundraising Fellowship trains, mentors, and supports the next generation of progressive fundraising professionals. We believe that increasing the diversity of the pipeline of fundraisers and supporting young fundraising professionals is critical to the success of the progressive movement, and strongly encourage people from diverse backgrounds including people of color, members of the LGBTQ+ community, disabled people, veterans, and others from historically underrepresented communities to apply.

Our immersive program provides fellows with a holistic understanding of fundraising and development in progressive political and non-profit organizations and the opportunity to connect with other professionals. Fellows attend weekly trainings on areas critical to development, such as prospect research, foundation and corporate fundraising, email outreach, stewardship of donors, cultivation of prospects, political fundraising, and end-of-year planning. 

Fellows will: 

  • Attend client and internal team meetings
  • Train with senior staff on client engagement 
  • Conduct research on high net worth individuals, companies, and foundations 
  • Draft meeting agendas, notes, budgets, and communications
  • Learn and practice essential skills including project management, managing up, effective communications, and database management

In turn, fellows gain a broad understanding of the fundraising profession through conversations with experts in the field. When feasible, Abundance will also provide fellows with opportunities to pursue fundraising as a career upon completion of the program. 

Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities Desired

  • An interest in working in the progressive nonprofit or political sector
  • Proactive attitude and a thirst for learning
  • Excellent interpersonal skills, with the ability to work independently but collaboratively
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Excellent customer service skills
  • Detail-oriented and dependable

Applicant Availability

Applicants should be in the DMV, Washington DC metro area. The fellowship will run for 12 weeks from January to March 2022. All fellow hires will be required to share their vaccination card as this is an in-person opportunity.
