Greenbelt Alliance addresses a single challenge: how the Bay Area handles growth. We are the only Bay Area organization that holistically addresses land-use issues across our region—from land conservation to smart growth development.
Join our team to help us create a Bay Area where the natural and agricultural lands that provide so much to our region are protected and where everyone can live in a thriving neighborhood that they are proud to call home.
Full-time position—Focus Areas:
Project Management, Salesforce Administration, Grant Processes
We need a project manager, Salesforce administrator, and fundraiser to manage our database, oversee gift processing and data entry, develop and track timelines for foundation grants and reports, and craft and track project timelines for the Advancement Department. You will drive our departmental efficiency and contribute to our fundraising success. You will be a key contributor to achieving our fundraising goals and expanding our donor base. The perfect candidate for this position is highly collaborative and extremely organized, knows Salesforce, and is creative and innovative. The Advancement Manager reports to the department director, works collaboratively with their teammates, and supervises the Advancement Assistant. This is a full-time position.
Temporary, Part-time position
The Bay Area hosts a rich mosaic of iconic natural areas, expansive ranchlands, and working farms. These majestic landscapes provide groundwater replenishment, flood control, wildlife habitat, fresh food, and recreation. Yet today, the risk of sprawl development on many of these lands is high; Greenbelt Alliance’s 2017 At Risk research found that 293,000 acres of natural and agricultural lands are currently at risk of being lost to poorly planned development. Meanwhile, there is significant need for new homes for residents across the income spectrum in walkable, transit-oriented communities within our existing cities and towns. Such smart development patterns are essential to address the region’s pressing housing affordability crisis, protect our environment, and improve the Bay Area’s quality of life.
The Campaign Assistant will have the opportunity to make a meaningful difference in addressing these pressing challenges by supporting Greenbelt Alliance’s open space protection and smart growth campaigns.
