Overview of the role
The Philanthropy Coordinator is an integral member of the Individual Philanthropy team.

You will support in the creation of proposals; Event Invitations and materials; stewardship mailing content and logistics; prospect research and screening; and additional materials the team may require to meet their annual revenue goals. As a member of the both the Individual Philanthropy team and Trevor’s full Development team, you will have the opportunity to work cross functionally on specific projects, as needed.
Who You Are
- A Collaborator and Communicator - You understand relationships are at the core of any successful partnership and instinctively know how to build strong relationships. You are excited about bringing people together to reach our shared objectives. You believe that for you to win, the team has to win. You are experienced in building rapport and trust with others, particularly across departments. You ask questions and demonstrate the ability to grasp critical concepts and important details that deepen your understanding of The Trevor Project’s goals and priorities, as well as the goals and priorities of the individual philanthropists with whom we partner.
- Organized and efficient. You can contribute to multiple complex projects, meeting tight deadlines and seek guidance to manage multiple-and often conflicting- priorities. You think operationally; your favorite words are “process” and “systems.” You have a demonstrated attention to detail and consistently deliver work that is error-free and comprehensive based on the needs of both internal and external stakeholders.
- A problem solver. You don’t wait for someone to tell you what to do. You see a problem, your instinct is to identify solutions. You ask questions. You seek to understand. You’re naturally curious. You can think on the spot and troubleshoot challenges with grit, creativity, and optimism.
- Passionate. You care about LGBTQ youth. You care about saving lives. You want to come to work and feel inspired every day
- Flexible. You are comfortable navigating ambiguity and working through competing priorities.
What You'll Do
- Contribute to our critical mission of ending suicide among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning young people, while fostering an inclusive approach to your direct work and engagement with Trevor colleagues across the organization

- Support cultivation and stewardship processes and materials for the full individual philanthropy portfolio as needed - You will support in the creation of proposals; Event Invitations and materials; stewardship mailing content and logistics; prospect research and screening; and additional materials the team may require to meet their annual revenue goals.
- Ensure clean and accurate data entry and reporting - Data fidelity is key to our team’s ability to build and maintain relationships of trust with our donors. You will enter data, facilitate data uploads, QC/QA data in Salesforce, and provide data reporting as it applies to donor pledges, event invitations, mailings, and other cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship activities. Experience with Salesforce is a plus!
- Support the team on team-wide and department-wide projects - This may include liaising with colleagues in Development Operations, Corporate Partnerships, Foundations & Government Grants, Finance, Legal, and other departments, as well as external vendors.
- Serve as the administrative and logistical backbone of the Individual Philanthropy team - You will help keep us organized and moving forward by helping with scheduling, organizing files, creating templates and standard operating procedures, contributing to briefings and proposals, and improving our processes.
