Job Title: Development Coordinator

 

Reports to: President and CEO

 

Classification: Full-time, salaried, exempt



United Way of Greater New Bedford (UWGNB) fights for the health, education, financial stability, and basic needs of every person in the nine communities it serves. Through strategic collaborations, direct services and financial support, we actively engage with our communities to identify gaps and create initiatives to address them. The Development Coordinator will build upon the organization’s long-standing partnerships with corporate donors while further enhancing our engagement and support from individual donors, businesses and foundations.


UWGNB has a diversified stream of overall revenue. While the annual campaign is a cornerstone of United Way fundraising, it also presents challenges and opportunities in an evolving economic climate. The traditional, annual campaign makes our grant-making to other organizations as a funder possible. Grants, sponsorships, program contracts and events make up the rest of our revenue and fuel our programming and operations. The breadth and depth of our work requires a nimble professional who is comfortable with a wide array of audiences and people from philanthropists and corporate CEOs to factory workers and community volunteers.

The Development Coordinator plays an important and visible role within UWGNB and drives fundraising strategy and philanthropic revenue generation. Every United Way of Greater New Bedford staff member serves as an ambassador for the organization, demonstrating a culture of fundraising, service and volunteer engagement. The Development Coordinator will lead the efforts to leverage our philanthropic potential and establish goals for donor identification, cultivation, solicitation and stewardship- all leading to the achievement of increased levels of support.
