Job Details

Protect Democracy seeks a Partnerships Data Associate to join our small, highly collaborative fundraising team and play a critical part in securing the financial future of our organization.

At Protect Democracy, we anchor our work in service to our ambitious mission: to prevent American democracy from declining into a more authoritarian form of government. In the role of Partnerships Data Associate, you will support that mission by collaborating with the fundraising team to develop and achieve annual fundraising goals, managing Protect Democracy’s development database, and overseeing org-wide gifts processing.

The ideal candidate brings strong detail orientation; a flexible, collaborative approach; a commitment to excellence; a growth-oriented mindset and a desire to examine and innovate our fundraising systems; and enthusiasm for our mission. We strongly encourage candidates from diverse backgrounds and from across the political and ideological spectrum to apply. You can work remotely from any location in the United States.

The Partnerships Data Associate will:

  • Collaborate with the fundraising team to craft annual development goals and track progress towards those goals.

  • Disseminate reports and systems that track fundraising progress against annual and quarterly revenue targets.

  • Shape best practices in database usage, and ensure timely and accurate data entry in the development database.

  • Produce fundraising reports for use by leadership and the development staff.

  • Oversee the gift acknowledgment process, ensuring minimal turnaround time.

  • Work closely with the Operations team to ensure accurate recording and timely reconciliation of all gifts, especially during the financial audit process.

  • Independently seek opportunities to build and improve on Protect Democracy’s development operations by closely examining needs, assessing possible solutions, and making concise recommendations.

The ideal candidate will bring:

  • Passion for protecting and improving our democracy.

  • Facility with data management and a drive to innovate technical systems.

  • Excellent critical thinking skills––can reason through novel problems and have good instincts about how to get to efficient solutions.

  • Keen attention to detail and the highest standards for excellence in execution.

  • Project management experience, including ability to develop and implement plans and track, prioritize and balance an assortment of ongoing responsibilities and competing deadlines.

  • A belief that there is strength in diversity and a commitment to ensuring an inclusive workplace, and an enthusiasm for working with people with diverse backgrounds, characteristics, and perspectives.

  • Comfort with a transparent culture where regular and candid feedback — up, down, and sideways — is a gift to be cherished, and a growth mindset that recognizes that we all are on a constant path of improvement.


The starting salary range for this role is $56,650 – $62,046, commensurate with the candidate’s relevant experience, capabilities and skills and in alignment with internal equity.
