We are thrilled to announce that the Washington State Opportunity Scholarship is expanding! We’re looking for people who share our passion in opening doors and building pathways for students to pursue high-demand science, technology, engineering, math (STEM) and health care careers in Washington state.

The Senior Development Director will build and scale our fundraising program, laying the foundation for sustainable success and increased impact for many years to come. Rather than being responsible for raising current-year revenue, your work will be primarily focused on strategic visioning and building the team and infrastructure that will be required to significantly increase the capacity of  WSOS’s development efforts over the next five years and beyond. This is a unique opportunity to work in a smaller, close-knit and  mission-driven nonprofit while still focusing your energies on planning for and securing large-scale, multi-million-dollar gifts that lead to measurable impact that you would typically only encounter in a much larger organization. You will be a pivotal leader on a collaborative team that is innovative and equity-focused, making a real difference in the lives of the thousands of under-resourced and
under-represented students WSOS serves.
The Development Operations Coordinator will play a key role in creating and implementing the administrative and operational activities that are the backbone for campaign management, major gifts fundraising, projects and events. The top responsibilities for this role include: 1) performing prospecting research; 2) preparing documentation for donor meetings; 3) conducting gift entry, processing and reconciliation support; and 4) leading the operational and administrative database support for fundraising activities, including event registration and fundraising reporting. To excel in role, the Development Operations Coordinator will be a self-starting, detail-orientated professional with a penchant for performing tasks efficiently and accurately. The ideal candidate is a team player with strong data management and customer service skills coupled with experience in a cloud-based CRM system such as Salesforce.
The Corporate Engagement Manager identifies and develops key relationships with industry partners across STEM, trade and health care organizations in Washington. The top priorities for this role include: 1) mentor recruitment, training, support and retention for nearly 1,000 mentor-mentee pairs in the Skills that Shine industry mentoring program; 2) securing industry partner commitments to offer priority access to work-like experiences (internships, shadowships, etc.) for Opportunity Scholars; 3) cultivate WSOS industry contacts as donors, including assisting in solicitations; and 4) recruiting essay reader volunteers to support in Opportunity Scholar selection. The ideal candidate will be a master relationship builder with a knack for activating corporate volunteers as part of developing a robust donor pipeline. Additionally, the Corporate Engagement Manager will have a passion for equitable education access and deep mission alignment.
