JFS has a time-limited project based opportunity that is available almost immediately.
The hours will be very flexible and can work around a graduate student or recent graduate’s other obligations and responsibilities.
At the present time, JFS does not have research capacity within our small fund development office and JFS needs to accelerate prospect research (individuals, families, foundations, corporations). A donor (in fact a former graduate of Simmons GSLIS) is seeding a start-up project.
- Perform extensive research using the Internet, on-line databases, and print resources to prepare confidential research reports for use by the CEO, development director, and volunteers for grant development as well as prospect solicitations.
- Identify and evaluate new prospects via data mining and use of internal and external non-subscription databases
- Identify and screen constituent groups to locate giving capacity and find individuals, corporations and foundations for further research
- Participate in special projects to update and improve data on existing constituents
- Instruct staff on use of non-subscription based Internet resources as needed
This opportunity can be treated as either an internship or as a part-time, time limited position. JFS is based in Framingham, and we expect that this work will be a blend of on site and off site activity.
