Now in its second century, Audubon is dedicated to protecting birds and other wildlife and the habitat that supports them. Audubon’s mission is engaging people in bird conservation on a hemispheric scale through science, policy, education and on-the-ground conservation action. By mobilizing and aligning its network of Chapters, Centers, State and Important Bird Area programs in the four major migratory flyways in the Americas, the organization will bring the full power of Audubon to bear on protecting common and threatened bird species and the critical habitat they need to survive. And as part of BirdLife International, Audubon will join people in over 100 in-country organizations all working to protect a network of Important Bird Areas around the world, leveraging the impact of actions they take at a local level. What defines Audubon’s unique value is a powerful grassroots network of nearly 500 local chapters, 23 state offices, 41 Audubon Centers, Important Bird Area Programs in 50 states, and 700 staff across the country. Audubon is a federal contractor and an Equal Opportunity Employer (EOE).
The Annual Fund Manager will help ensure the success of Audubon California’s annual fund efforts (donors of $1 to $10,000), which include direct mail appeals (renewal, upgrades, and acquisition), email appeals, online giving, stewardship newsletters, and targeted strategies for center and sanctuaries. S/he will be an invaluable member of a small development department, with opportunity to learn and grow professionally in all aspects of development.
The right candidate will be first and foremost a strong writer and project manager, and an entrepreneurial, organized, and energetic development professional interested in conservation of California’s birds and their habitats.
