Fund Development Coordinator

Community Water Center

About the organization

Community Water Center is an environmental justice nonprofit that works alongside
under-resourced communities of color to secure universal access to safe and affordable
drinking water in California. We believe access to safe and affordable drinking water is a basic
human right, not a privilege. CWC seeks to build an enduring movement for water justice that is
powered by community activists by serving as a catalyst for community-driven water solutions
through organizing, education, and advocacy.


The Fund Development Coordinator will have the opportunity to use valuable fundraising and
relationship building skills to support a successful and effective non-profit organization focused
on access to clean water. Key projects include grant writing and reporting, donor cultivation
and appreciation, planning and managing events, using data and metrics to gauge
effectiveness, and building relationships with philanthropic partners. This position will require
occasional travel (when it is safe and allowed) and ability to occasionally work evenings and
weekends to accommodate fundraising activities, such as events, funder tours and funder
deadlines. This position reports to the Director of Strategic Partnerships and will work with
other CWC personnel, independent contractors, allies and vendors. This is a regular, exempt,
full-time, salary position.
