Overview

The American Enterprise Institute seeks a development professional to join AEI’s team in executing a strategic and results-oriented plan to build the donor community for the nation’s premier Washington-based think tank. With your help, we will enhance AEI’s influence and impact on the debates of the day, making the case for free markets, limited government, and stronger national security.

 

You must be a creative, entrepreneurial, and hardworking person and will join a team of talented professionals who are connecting AEI donors and donor prospects with AEI’s strategic plan to promote our scholars’ work across the country. 

 

The ideal candidate will bring energy, an entrepreneurial spirit, and a fierce commitment to achieving results. Expectations will be high, as will be the sense of accomplishment when you succeed.  Willingness to work in a fast-paced, detail-oriented, and creative environment is a must. Day-to-day responsibilities include database management, donor research, and strategic operational support.  These responsibilities require strong writing and communication skills and the ability to meet tight deadlines, multitask, and prioritize.

 

A bachelor’s degree is required. A strong familiarity and experience working in fundraising or a not-for-profit environment is preferred. The position will interface directly with most members of AEI’s development team and will support department operations.

 

Title and salary will be commensurate with experience. Qualified candidates should submit an online application to www.aei.org/jobs, complete with a cover letter, resume, transcripts, and a 500-word writing sample.
