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 Development Research Associate is part of Development Services’ Prospect Development Team and works with department leadership and fundraisers across the country. The position enhances Audubon’s fundraising efforts by providing research, analysis, and strategy recommendations for existing and prospective donors, with a focus on Institutions, Major Gifts, and Planned Giving.
The Development Research Associate would ideally work out of our National office in New York City. However, we will consider a remote work arrangement with qualified candidates based elsewhere.
A cover letter is required to be considered for this position.
