Fundraising Coordinator


Are you an experienced, detail-oriented coordinator or project manager? Do you have experience in organizing strategic initiatives with multiple team members? Do you wish to leverage these skills to support an innovative community organization leveraging media and communications technology to help nonprofits and low-income communities to more effectively shape public awareness and public policy? If so, the Open Media Foundation seeks a Fundraising Coordinator to help design and execute fundraising strategies, starting with individual donor cultivation and extending into corporate sponsorships, grants, Board support, fundraising events, and earned income, including:

  • Individual Donor Cultivation: Individual Donor Cultivation will be the primary focus of the position, with training and support via the Community First Foundation and Network for Good’s Jumpstart Program (learn more at to systematize OMF’s approach to engaging current and future donors.

  • Support for OMF Board of Directors:  With assistance from the Jumpstart Program, the Fundraising Coordinator will work to engage Board members in gift cultivation and donor relations.

  • Endowment/Planned Giving: The Fundraising Coordinator will work with the Jumpstart Program to create an Endowment/Planned Giving program, including Gift Acceptance Process and Policies and a planned giving marketing effort within the overall donor communication plan.


OMF has compelling, committed Board Members and Leadership who are willing to open doors and sit in front of a donor and make a hard ask. OMF has committed leaders and members, happy to engage in donor cultivation and stewardship. We have volunteers who are willing to knock on doors, visit local businesses, engage and steward current donors, and organize fund development events. The missing piece is a Fundraising Coordinator to manage these fundraising activities, allowing Board and ED to make strategic asks and focus on mission-critical aspects of donor engagement.

The Fundraising Coordinator will manage these resources to generate leads and solicit support from an expanding community of support. Additional responsibilities include:

  • Support the CEO in building a culture of philanthropy for all OMF stakeholders, i.e. Donors Board, Staff, and Volunteers.

  • Creation and implementation of a consistent Gift Acceptance Process & Policy
