About this Career Opportunity

The Development Associate will provide development and administrative support to the annual giving manager and to the overall department.

This is a full-time position that regularly requires some work to be performed at our headquarters in Washington, D.C. (Friendship Heights on Metro’s Red Line). Some work can be performed remotely from a location proximate to the office if desired. The position also occasionally requires attending events that require travel and evening or weekend work.
