America’s premier battlefield preservation organization needs your talents to help us steward and show our true appreciation for our great donors, who are among the most committed and generous in the nation.


Previous non-profit donor development / administrative / fundraising / customer service experience highly preferred (2-5+ years), but we do sometimes hire outside the box, for the right person. Position is based at our downtown DC national HQ. Qualities sought: Exceptional work ethic, rigorous attention to detail, initiative, polished professionalism, creativity, entrepreneurial spirit, proficiency on all Microsoft Office programs, and the requirement to excel as part of a highly functioning and collegial team as well as in one-on-one situations with little or no supervision. You should be willing to “get into the trenches” and do whatever it takes to get the job done. Proficiency with Raiser’s Edge preferred. You should also excel at building quality relationships in a professional donor setting. You will get to spend your days saying “thank you,” and developing new ways to show appreciation to generous people.
