Job Posting: CSCS Advancement Officer

JOB POSTING: CSCS Advancement Officer

The Center for Sustainable Climate Solutions is excited to announce that we are seeking applicants for the position of CSCS Advancement Officer!

We seek an individual who is passionate about climate issues, is committed to engaging Mennonites and other Anabaptists on this issue, and can energetically help CSCS widen our base of financial supporters. This Advancement Officer position would be part of a broader team of individuals across the country who are promoting the CSCS mission of “envisioning Anabaptists fully engaged in actions which mitigate climate change, and Anabaptist perspectives influencing the larger climate conversation”.

This position provides guidance to advancement activities for the Center, with the primary goal of engaging a larger pool of supporters through financial giving and other forms of support. The advancement officer actively works with the director to achieve fundraising goals by planning, coordinating and ensuring implementation of strategies to develop donors and contributions to support the Center.

CSCS is uniquely organized as a joint program of three core partners – Eastern Mennonite University, Mennonite Central Committee, and Goshen College. However, advancement activities occur through CSCS’s own advancement program, and are not undertaken by the core partners. As such, activities of the CSCS advancement program are not only internal, but also require a level of coordination with core partner’s own advancement offices. The advancement director will need to be comfortable with some degree of coordination with these offices; procedures are partly outlined by MOU’s, and partly negotiated depending on specific situations.

To apply, please send a cover letter, resume, and contact information for 3 references to:

Doug Graber Neufeld
CSCS, 1200 Park Rd
Eastern Mennonite University
Harrisonburg, VA 22802
540-432-4401

Review of applications will begin February 15th.
