New Opening With MAP: Development Coordinator


Mangrove Action Project, a non-profit project of Earth Island Institute, is looking for a Development Coordinator on either a part time or full time basis. Here are some of the job requirements:

  • The Development Coordinator (DC) must be dynamic, self-motivated and able to express her/him self clearly and concisely, possessing strong planning, communication and organization skills.
  • The applicant must have a BS/BA or equivalent minimum
  • Experience in development/ fundraising for non-profits, including grant writing, with a proven track record of success
  • Experience with public speaking and have good writing skills
  • Database management and working knowledge of various software programs
  • Involvement in/ familiarity with international conservation and tropical coastal ecosystems a plus.
  • Work closely with Steering Committee, or future Board of Directors, and Executive Director and staff
  • Prepare reports and provide other support as needed
  • Manage and maintain donor database as needed
  • Compensation based on negotiable commission. The DC position with MAP is at first a commission basis job, requiring funds raised by the DC him or her self to pay a partial amount of the DC's own salary. Until funds are actually raised by the DC, the percentage would equal zero. Otherwise, the DC would earn a certain variable percentage which is negotiable.
  • After MAP has sufficient funds in our account, we would then wish to hire the DC on a part time or full time salary basis-perhaps a fixed salary, or partially fixed and part commission.
  • All applicants must send a cover letter specifically explaining how you meet each qualification listed above, turn in a current resume, and list three to five personal references.


    This is a draft job description for the DC position, so we can refine this over time. If you think your qualifications match the requirements for a DC, please let us know.


    For The Mangroves,
