About National Park Trust
National Park Trust’s mission is to preserve parks today and develop park stewards for tomorrow. Our creative and innovative programs advance public parks, lands, and waters as spaces that are welcoming and accessible to every person in every community. We believe that our public parks, lands, and waters should be cared for, enjoyed by, and preserved by all for current and future generations.
As a national nonprofit organization located in the Washington D.C. metro area, the Park Trust works closely with the National Park Service to acquire important privately owned lands to expand and complete our national parks. We also annually engage tens of thousands of students from under-served communities across the country with the great outdoors. By introducing a new generation of children to our public lands and waters, we are cultivating future caretakers of our natural, historical, and cultural resources.
We are looking for a dynamic and energetic Development Coordinator to support the Park Trust's rapidly growing fundraising efforts that fuel all of our programs. This new staff member will support the Director of Development in a broad range of fundraising initiatives. The Development Coordinator will also support the Executive Director and board members in their fundraising efforts. This position is ideal for someone looking to gain experience in many areas of development – including digital and direct mail, donor and fundraising events, and capital campaigns. This staff member will also work closely with our youth programs, lands, finance, and communications team members on various aspects of their work.
The Development Coordinator will also be able to see firsthand the impact of their fundraising efforts on our programs and stakeholders. This full-time, permanent staff member will report directly to the Director of Development. The expectations for this position range from full-time in-office work to a blend of remote and in-office work, depending on the needs of the Park Trust.
