Disability Policy Consortium (DPC) is hiring a development and fundraising associate! We’re a rapidly growing disability rights advocacy organization. DPC’s credo is “About Us, By Us”: the belief that when decisions are made about people with disabilities, people with disabilities must play a lead role in making them. Our mission is to ensure the voice of people with disabilities is heard on key issues, to support the health of our community through participatory research and expert policy analysis, to and empower grassroots disability leaders to transform their communities.

We need your help to bring in the revenue we need to expand our civil rights advocacy and research work. You would be working directly with our Executive Directory and our Advocacy Director as you identify and apply for grants, lead efforts to grow our individual giving program, manage our social media accounts to raise and maintain active profiles and plan our annual awards dinner and other public fundraising events.

This position would be ideal for someone who has experience in non-profit fundraising, social media management and community organizing and is excited at the prospect of taking the lead on an organization’s fundraising.

  • Create social media posts that spread awareness about DPC and promote giving
  • Work closely with the Board to inspire greater participation with development efforts, capitalizing on the resources, talents, and networks the Board offers.
