American Philanthropic is a growing, national philanthropic consulting and services firm with offices in the Philadelphia, Chicago, Phoenix, Denver, Kansas City, and Raleigh metro areas. American Philanthropic works with charitable foundations and nonprofits to strengthen civil society—those nongovernmental, non-market-based associations and organizations which are vital to the health of our democracy. To do this, we offer strategic organizational and development analysis and planning services, as well as a variety of services related to fundraising and development including development training, messaging and branding assistance, creation of donor-oriented materials and solicitations, donor prospect research, and direct mail program management, among others. More information is available at www.americanphilanthropic.com.
As a senior consultant at American Philanthropic, you will be responsible for leading project management support for multiple ongoing client engagements, assisting with business development, and helping to manage other American Philanthropic employees. You will work with other members of the American Philanthropic staff and with contractors to ensure that the firm continues to meet a high standard of excellence in serving its clients and fulfilling its obligations.
The sort of work in which you may be engaged includes:
Client Deliverables and Consulting
Client Communications and Project Management
Administrative and Other Tasks
You do not need experience in each of these areas in order to apply. Ideally, you will be located near one of American Philanthropic’s offices, but a remote position may be considered for exceptional candidates. You should be willing to spend 4–6 days per month in travel, depending on client needs.
You should have 5+ years of professional experience, including some time spent in nonprofit development or programs or foundation operations. Liberal arts background preferred. You should have a portfolio that demonstrates keen intelligence, strong organization and project management skills, success in managing multiple projects simultaneously, a high degree of personal initiative and conscientiousness, and superb interpersonal skills.
You must take personal ownership of projects and be passionate about helping our clients succeed. Ideally, you will be a generalist who can adapt quickly to new situations and bring intellectual order out of sometimes ambiguous and opaque information environments. Familiarity with research tools such as Wealth Engine, iWave, and Foundation Directory, as well as Salesforce, is a plus, but not expected.
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 help build a fast-growing consulting and services firm into a major force in the philanthropic sphere.
