Title: Volunteer Donor Relations & Data Specialist

Reports to: Director of Development and Communications

Works with: Director of Development and Communications; Manager of Community Programs; Members of Board of Directors; other volunteers in administrative roles

Position Summary: The Donor Relations & Data Specialist provides crucial behind-the-scenes support to keep the information in FOF’s communication and financial systems up-to-date. FOF relies on the goodwill and financial generosity of supporters around the country. The Donor Relations & Data Specialist helps keep those relationships strong through diligence and accuracy, in turn helping FOF’s human and animal clients thrive.

Job Duties:

  1. Enter donor and gift data into DonorPerfect (cloud-based database management software) once a week.
  2. Run occasional donor reports from DonorPerfect.
  3. Hand write thank you cards to select donors, including addressing/sealing/stamping/mailing envelopes.
  4. Hand write or email occasional dedication messages to people in whose honor a donation has been made.
  5. Help assemble donor mailings.
  6. Other administrative tasks as needed, including possible work with website editing and social media posting.

Skills/Attributes:

  1. Impeccable accuracy in data entry; intense attention to detail in all work.
  2. Basic familiarity with MS Office using word processing, spreadsheets, and email.
  3. Independent time-management skills and the ability to meet deadlines and other commitments without supervision.
  4. Willingness to learn new skills with database software; a problem-solving mindset with regard to technology (especially for applicants with no prior database experience).
  5. Neat, presentable handwriting when necessary for written donor communications.
  6. Fluent or near-fluent comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing abilities in English. (Additional languages are always welcome.)
  7. Ability to maintain strict confidentiality with regard to donor data; a legally binding non-disclosure agreement will be required and enforced.
  8. Enthusiasm for FOF’s work and mission of providing affordable spay/neuter and essential surgery

Preferred Experience: Some combination of the following experience will be useful in this position. If you don’t have any of this experience, but you believe you may be a good fit for this role based on the Required Skills and Attributes above, we’d love to hear from you.

  1. Data entry of financial and/or demographic records
  2. Use of relational database software
  3. Development or fundraising work in a non-profit or similar environment

Working Environment: Most work may be performed remotely and independently, using a personal computer with internet access, at a secure location such as the DRDS’ home. Some tasks will require the DRDS to be present in the FOF clinic/office located at 12226 San Pablo Avenue, Richmond, CA. The office is located one mile north of El Cerrito del Norte BART station and is convenient to several AC Transit bus lines. Street parking is available in the surrounding neighborhood. Parking for vehicles with disabled person placards is available adjacent to the clinic. While in the FOF clinic, workers may be exposed to animal allergens, odors, and noise. This position does not routinely include direct contact with animals.

Commitment: Estimated 4-6 working hours required per week in the months May through July (spring campaign) and November through January (year-end campaign). Estimated 2-3 working hours required per week in other months. After a two-week trial period, FOF requests a commitment of at least 12 months for this position, due to the complexity of the work involved. After initial training, most work can be completed independently during hours of the DRDS’s choosing. Training and other occasional in-person collaboration with others will require work during FOF business hours or early evenings. Collaborators will work to accommodate the DRDS’s other commitments (work, family, school, etc.) when scheduling meetings.

Support: The DRDS is a volunteer position; no financial compensation or benefits are offered. FOF staff and/or members of the Board of Directors will offer training as necessary. Upon a DRDS’s successful service of six months, FOF staff and/or members of the Board of Directors may serve as professional references at their discretion. FOF staff may invite the DRDS to observe and learn about other FOF operations at their discretion.

Age requirement: The DRDS must be at least 18 years old.

Dress code at the clinic: Casual dress and close-toed shoes (for safety reasons).

About FOF: Since 1998 Fix Our Ferals in Richmond, CA has served tens of thousands of Bay Area low-income residents and many partner Bay Area animal welfare organizations. Our mission is to humanely end overpopulation of cats and dogs by making quality spay/neuter (SN) and crucial surgical care accessible to them, regardless of their caretakers’ ability to pay. We are part of the progressive animal welfare movement that focuses on keeping cats and dogs out of crowded shelters by reducing populations of free-roaming cats and returning them to their colonies, and keeping pet cats and dogs in their homes. We believe that the high cost of veterinary surgery should not be the reason why a loving, low-income pet guardian must surrender their cat or dog to a shelter or why free-roaming cats continue to reproduce and later occupy space in over-crowded shelters, where they will likely be euthanized.
