Position Description
Nonprofit Technology
The purpose of the nonprofit technology service line is to support our clients in becoming more data-driven. We do that by helping our clients with the following.

  • Assess requirements and find and adopt new technology, with an emphasis on CRM software.
  • Assess and improve systems. “Systems” include the people, processes, technology, and culture necessary to be a high-performing fundraising operation.
  • Improve analytics and business intelligence, such as enhancing code structures, establishing measures, creating reports and dashboards, and providing coaching.
  • Determine internal readiness for a campaign or major fundraising initiative by rating their current capabilities and comparing them to the needs of the proposed initiative.
  • Understand and navigate the fundraising technology marketplace.
  • Understand the comprehensive data needs of our clients (e.g., prospect research, wealth screening, affinity scoring, etc.).

Client Service
This is a consultant’s primary role and includes completing client work within the scope of the project. A key responsibility of this role will be to manipulate and interpret client data, and requires a person who is comfortable with fundraising CRMs and their data. This role also requires a good communicator, orally and in writing.

Professional Development
A successful consultant is a subject-matter expert. This requires maintaining knowledge of current fundraising tactics and trends through self-directed and firm-supported professional development. You will be invited to participate in internal professional development meetings and other learning opportunities.

We expect our consultants to be 65% utilized – meaning they spend 26 hours each week on direct client service, in alignment with each project’s estimated hours. The remaining time is spent improving skills, supporting business development and marketing, and completing administrative tasks.

The target annual compensation for this role is $52,500 – $72,000.
