The Oregon Humanities team is a group of idealistic, collaborative, creative people who are committed to bringing Oregonians together across differences, beliefs, and backgrounds. Each year, we offer hundreds of public conversations and programs across the state, train and support dozens of discussion leaders, and award tens of thousands of dollars in grants to organizations that, like us, believe in the power of people in rooms listening, learning, and struggling together. In our magazine and on our website, we publish essays, photographs, films, and audio recordings that explore the thoughts, perspectives, and experiences of Oregonians, especially those who have been ignored, generalized, or oppressed.
We are looking for a development assistant to support our team’s work in planning, developing, and executing all fundraising efforts at Oregon Humanities. The development assistant role is an entry level position. We’re looking for someone who can be flexible and responsive to the evolution of our team’s needs, who enjoys taking initiative, balancing multiple tasks, paying attention to details, and has great organizational and communication skills for both collaboration and independent work.
