WCBE seeks a mission-driven Membership Director!

Sep 30, 2015

The Membership Director helps listeners understand the importance of becoming donors to keep WCBE on the air.  Reporting directly to the General Manager, the Membership Director shapes, produces, and is responsible for listener-based fundraising – particularly our big Spring and Fall on-air fund drives, including the accompanying direct mail and e-mail campaigns, theme development, premium design and production, staff pitch guidance, and volunteer coordination.  The Membership Director also develops other fundraising efforts; the more creative, the better!  By year’s end, this position will have generated $800,000+ in revenue.

Minimum Qualifications:
EDUCATION: Associates Degree or higher in Business, Marketing, Communications, or related field.
EXPERIENCE:  One year of fundraising
MISC:  Valid motor vehicle operator’s license.

How You’ll Stand Out from the Rest:

  • Conducted fundraising for a non-profit organization, if not a public broadcaster
  • Proficient in using Raisers Edge/Blackbaud membership software
  • Excellent writing and speaking skills
  • Experience with direct mail and e-mail fundraising campaigns
  • Ability to work independently, yet collaborate well with a team
  • A deep love for public radio in general (and WCBE in particular!)
  • Excellent sense of humor
