Open Positions

Development & Event Coordinator

Posted on January 6, 2023

Are you a go-getter who is comfortable working on a small team and wearing lots of different ‘hats’?

The Development & Event Coordinator assists in the management of fundraising initiatives for Detroit Children’s Fund (DCF) including special events, major gifts, sponsorships, grant writing and stewardship.

In this role the day-to-day work shifts and is heavily based on the Development team’s engagements, projects and programs. Working closely with the Chief Development Officer, the Development & Event Coordinator supports fundraising projects, communicates with current and prospective donors, and manages individual/corporate gifts.

This is an entry level position. Fundraising or event experience is preferred but not required.
