Are you energetic, enthusiastic and love talk to people? Do you have great organizational skills and attention to detail? Are you eager to work for an organization making a difference?

Boston Landmarks Orchestra is looking for a candidate to help drive our fundraising efforts with individuals. 

About us

Boston Landmarks Orchestra produces free concerts and community events during the summer, with a growing focus on year-round programming. We foster a fun, accepting atmosphere not often seen at a classical music concert. Our concerts are a place where communities across Boston are brought together. We believe that when people from different backgrounds and demographics come together through the medium of music, barriers are broken down. We program works by composers of many different backgrounds and genres and collaborate frequently with an array of community partners. Our new year-round programming will have a particular focus on marginalized groups, including communities of color, low-income communities, and older adults.

About the job

As Development Associate, you’ll be responsible for:

  • Processing donations, generating reports, and maintaining donor lists.
  • Thanking donors and communicating with them in a variety of ways. 
  • Coordinating annual fund campaigns via mail, email, and social media. 
  • Playing key role in our annual Gala, including sponsorships, auction items and event logistics.
  • Supporting the Co-Executive Directors in board matters.
  • Researching current patrons to identify new donor prospects.
  • Assisting in office management tasks, including meeting notes and preparing minutes
  • Recruiting, training, and coordinating volunteers
  • Supporting our ongoing events, including concerts, and education/community engagement activities.

About you

You love to work:

  • Collaboratively as member of a team.
  • In a diverse, inclusive, and culturally responsive environment.
  • On multiple projects, adjusting priorities as needed.

You have:

  • Strong written and verbal communication skills

It’s also nice if you have:

This is a full-time position, with a salary range of $39,000 – $43,000. Benefits include health insurance, 80% paid by us, and generous paid time off of up to 18 days. We work from home right now and will move to a hybrid in person/remote model in the near future. You’ll be asked to work some evening/weekend hours, especially during summer months when we perform our main season concerts.

Landmarks Orchestra embraces diversity and equal opportunity in a serious way. We are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills. The more inclusive we are, the better our work will be.
