19. Part time fundraiser for Campus Election Engagement Project

Paul Loeb (Paulloeb-articles@npogroups.org) Our Campus Election Engagement Project (CEEP) is looking for another half-time staffer and I thought you just might be interested or know someone else who'd be good for the job. As you know, (CEEP) works to help America's colleges and universities get as many of their 20 million students as possible to register, volunteer in campaigns, educate themselves on issues and candidates, and turn out at the polls. Our non-partisan engagement project had a major impact in 2008 and 2012 and is now addressing major off-year elections, beginning this year in Virginia. We’re currently recruiting a half-time Associate National Development Officer, who will work with us to help raise the money that allows us to hire our state staffers. That way we can continue to broaden our support base and engage more states, while allowing me to carve out enough time to being doing some writing again.

Here's the description. If you're interested, get back to National Director Jonathan Romm at the email at the bottom. Unfortunately, he'll only be able to respond to people who are short-listed for an interview.

Thanks much

Paul Loeb
Founder Campus Election Engagement Project, author Soul of a Citizen and The Impossible Will Take a Little While

Campus Election Engagement Project: Position Description – Half-Time Major Donor Fundraiser
The Campus Election Engagement Project (CEEP) works to help America's colleges and universities get as many of their 20 million students as possible to register, volunteer in campaigns, educate themselves on issues and candidates, and turn out at the polls. Our non-partisan engagement project had a major impact in 2008 and 2012 and is now addressing major off-year elections, beginning this year in Virginia. We’re currently recruiting an Associate National Development Officer, who will work with CEEP’s founder, Soul of a Citizen author Paul Loeb and National Director Jonathan Romm to raise money for the project.

CEEP Summary: Founded in 2008, CEEP works through academic networks that schools know and trust, like the state Campus Compact affiliates, to compile and distribute the most effective practices to get their students involved in elections. Our outreach staffers then follow up by phone to coach the schools in implementing them. In 2008, CEEP engaged over 500 college campuses that enrolled nearly 3 million undergraduates. In 2012, we worked with over 750 campuses in 26 states, enrolling over 5.5 million students. According to follow-up surveys, 74% of the schools CEEP approached used at least some of our resources or ideas, and 49% used many of them. Our project has a huge multiplier effect because we work with administrators, faculty, and staff whose salaries are covered by their schools, and help them collaborate to engage their students. CEEP focuses on students both because they historically vote at lower rates than other groups—particularly in non-presidential elections, where four out of five tend to stay home—and because when they do participate, their habits of involvement can last a lifetime. See www.campuselect.org

Job Summary: CEEP founder Paul Loeb has had excellent success identifying potential new major donors from various lists, mailing them descriptive materials, and following up by phone. You would conduct comparable outreach from lists we’d provide, of similar people who we haven’t yet approached. Since these people usually don’t know our project before we approach them, are inundated with requests, and often haven’t read what we’ve sent, you’re going to have to be good to engage them. But once you do start a conversation and give them a sense of our project, they tend to really respond. You can then email them more information and offer them the option of talking with project founder Paul Loeb. Many will end up making tax-deductible contributions.

The donors we connect with through this process are smart and accomplished people who will ask hard questions. If you give them good answers, they’ll appreciate the power of our project’s approach, and respond. (About a third of the potential major donors who we actually spoke with ended up contributing in 2012, often for $5,000 or more) But you’ll need to get and hold their attention, while conveying our project’s unique strengths.


Required Skill-set:

--Ability to understand CEEP’s approach, to convey its power and vision, and to sum up concisely why our project matters.

--Excellent interpersonal outreach skills. Your first 15-60 seconds on the phone are critical.

--Fundraising background preferable but we’d consider other related skills and experience.

--Knowledge of the current political landscape. Knowledge of higher education a plus.

--Thoughtful enough to get into serious conversations with potential donors after you’ve summed up our key talking points. We’re looking for someone they’ll enjoy talking with, who isn’t just reading a script.

--Major league persistence—will need to avoid being dispirited by endless answering machines and multiple rejections, yet be sensitive enough to respect the decisions of those who don’t choose to fund us.

Benefits:
$15/hour to start with a potential for up to $25/hour based on performance.
Work from your own home or apartment.
Support from our skilled national team. Loeb and National Director Jonathan Romm will provide coaching, role playing, letters to send out and templates for phone conversations.
·
Help our project make a major national difference.

If you are interested in joining the CEEP team, please email Jonathan Romm (jonathan@campuselect.org) with your resume and cover letter. Thanks for your interest in this opportunity. Only applicants short-listed for an interview will be contacted. CEEP is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
