  • Fundraising Assistant: This critical support position is a literal extension to everything the sales team is doing to share our impact, which will drive our income – from setting up visits with prospects and managing follow-up, to supporting the detailed work of donor management and stewardship.
  • Executive AssistantThis new role supports the Damascus leadership; administrative experience is helpful, but not required – more important is a service orientation, and a mindset of ownership in solving problems and making things happen through others.
