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 Senior Consultant, Direct Response, you will be responsible for supporting American Philanthropic and its clients in executing integrated direct response programs by assisting in a variety of duties including client communication and cultivation, strategic guidance and support, communications planning, project management, coordinating tasks among internal and external stakeholders, and maintaining quality control for each project.
