American Philanthropic’s direct response group helps nonprofits acquire new donors and cultivate a deeper relationship with current supporters by planning, consulting on, and executing direct mail, digital outreach, and other integrated fundraising campaigns.
As a Project Coordinator, Direct Response, you will be responsible for supporting American Philanthropic’s consultants in producing integrated fundraising engagements by assisting in a variety of duties including overall project management, coordinating tasks among internal and external stakeholders, ensuring deadlines are met, managing print and digital production, proofing design and copy, and maintaining quality control for each project. You will work closely with other members of the American Philanthropic staff and with outside contractors to ensure we meet a high standard of excellence in serving our clients.

Ideally, you will be located near American Philanthropic’s West Chester office, but other locations may be considered for exceptional candidates.

Well-honed organizational skills, attention to detail, keen intelligence, and ability to shift quickly between tasks required; experience in project management of direct response, marketing and creative initiatives is preferred.
In addition, you should be able to demonstrate a strong commitment to the American Philanthropic mission of strengthening society’s “little platoons”—the independent mediating institutions and voluntary associations that constitute civil society and are vital to human flourishing. And you should be enthusiastic about the opportunity to join a specialized department that is helping to build a fast-growing consulting and services firm into a major force in the philanthropic sphere.
