The National Domestic Workers Alliance (www.domesticworkers.org) organizes domestic workers in the United States for respect, recognition and labor standards. We work to guarantee labor protections for domestic workers by winning legislation at the state level, pushing for regulatory changes at the national level, through the International Labor Organization at the global level, and elevating domestic workers as key leaders in building a powerful movement for social and global justice. The Alliance formed in 2007 at the US Social Forum and currently represents 60+ affiliates in 19 states nationally. NDWA has a partially remote staff, with headquarters in NYC and offices in Atlanta, Chicago, Washington, DC and Oakland. Current members of the Development team are based in New York City, Oakland, and Washington, DC. NDWA has a growing civic engagement program, which is implemented in partnership with our c4 sister organization, Care In Action.
NDWA seeks a results-oriented, adaptable, and relationship-driven Development Manager to help manage a growing foundation and individual fundraising program. The person will serve a key support role toward our goal to increase the number of philanthropic partnerships for NDWA and its sister entities, NDWA Labs, an LLC that experiments with innovations for improving standards in the marketplace for domestic workers, and Care in Action, a 501(c)4, dedicated to organizing domestic workers and working families to make their voices heard, and advocate for respect and recognition. The Development Manager will have an opportunity to learn about all aspects of our fundraising while helping to adapt and build systems to meet evolving needs, and working in an exceptionally mission-driven environment. The Development Manager’s key responsibilities will include the management of a subset of foundation and major donor relationships; coordination with program leads on concept notes, grant proposals, and reports; and oversight of a donor engagement plan for a portfolio of mid-level and major donors.
