Digital Fundraising Consultant

We are hiring a digital fundraising consultant to help us create an on-demand, online training for campaign fundraising staff on digital fundraising. The consultant will:

  • Assist NDTC staff in creating outlines and drafting written training materials
  • Discuss topic areas with NDTC staff to facilitate their creation of training materials
  • Review and provide feedback on outlines, scripts, worksheets, online course drafts, and other materials, as needed
  • In some cases, the consultant may be asked to serve as the on-screen lecturer for on-demand video lectures that NDTC films or to narrate online courses
  • Experience with the most up-to-date strategies for candidate campaign fundraising using digital tools
  • At least 1–2 cycles of experience where you were responsible for digital fundraising on a candidate campaign (preferably at the state legislative or congressional levels) and 4+ years of political fundraising experience
  • The ideal person for this role is a full-time consultant who is NOT open to joining a 2020 campaign full-time
