Hack the Hood Development Associate Job Description
Location: OAKLAND, CA
Job Category: Part Time, non-exempt Employee
Reports To: Development Director
Compensation commensurate with experience
Hack the Hood was launched just five years ago to build a tech sector that works for everyone. We support under-resourced youth of color in communities around the state and the country to build 21st century careers in technology and social media. We turn the digital economy from threat to opportunity by joining our youth with the 58% of small businesses that don’t have a website. As one of the first organizations in this field, our programs aim to ensure that tech is making the world better for all the communities it intersects.
We are seeking a Development Associate to support our fundraising and development team. You will be instrumental in accelerating our fundraising efforts by engaging in grant research and writing, relationship-building with donors, and preparing for our end-of-year campaign. Besides providing administrative and creative support, you’ll be a key force in creating new systems and processes to organize donor and grant communications while learning to fundraise for a $2 million organization.
Work at Hack the Hood is strongly collaborative. We achieve amazing things not just through hard work, but through the value we place on our relationships with the young people we serve, with each other, our community, and the businesses, small and large, that we partner with. Come join us!
This is a wonderful opportunity to be part of a committed team doing important, innovative regional work. The position offers growth opportunities, great community engagement and tangible measurements of outcomes and impact. Candidate consideration will begin the 11th of December 2018.
