The Development Assistant works alongside fundraisers, university colleagues and external constituents to develop, support and maintain programs and activities consistent with securing philanthropic support for the university. Primary responsibilities include: responding to inquiries made through the BC Fund's toll-free number and/or email account, supporting Annual Giving direct mail, telemarketing, and web-based e-marketing programs, coordinating pledge collection and gift acknowledgement mailings via mail and email, ongoing reporting of results and analyses, preparing materials for weekly team meetings, processing of invoices, and assisting with select events. Done well, these tasks assist the Marketing & Participation team in achieving its annual alumni participation goals. Given the extensive independent contact with external constituents including alumni and parent volunteers, donors, and university officials, this position requires strong interpersonal and organizational skills with attention to detail and accuracy; excellent oral and written communications skills; and complete discretion regarding the handling and storing of confidential data.
Positions in the Annual Giving unit provide support for up to four annual giving officers. Fundraising work in the Marketing & Participation unit is focused on direct mail, telemarketing, and digital and email marketing.
