The American Enterprise Institute (AEI) seeks a full-time grants associate to join our fundraising team and support the financial and analytical needs of our development department. Our ideal candidate has extensive experience with Excel, strong organizational and communication skills, and a passion for fundraising, public policy, and AEI's mission.

AEI, located in Washington, DC, is one of America's premier think tanks. The work of our fellows and staff advances ideas rooted in our belief in democracy, free enterprise, American strength and global leadership, solidarity with those at the periphery of our society, and a pluralistic, entrepreneurial culture. As a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, AEI relies on donations from individuals and organizations to support this critical work.

The development grants associate would support AEI's mission by working with staff in the development department and throughout the Institute to create custom fundraising budgets and financial reports for grant proposals and donor communications. The grants associate would be an active member, contributing strategy to the fundraising team, and would also work directly with program managers and research staff to provide information and reports on project resources.

These responsibilities require excellent communication and organization skills; the ability to meet tight deadlines and multitask; strong problem-solving skills; interest and affinity for AEI's mission; and a creative, collaborative, and detail-oriented personality. Knowledge of Excel, experience in fundraising, and a strong aptitude for databases (Salesforce) are required; experience with PowerPoint or other presentation programs is a plus. An ideal candidate has at least three years of experience.
