Summary

Put yourself at the intersection of LGBTQ rights, Jewish identity, and the broader movement for social justice in American society. Keshet seeks a dynamic and experienced professional to join a phenomenal team.

The Development Operations Manager is responsible for fundraising operations, gift entry in Salesforce to ensure timely and accurate donor acknowledgement, and traffic management of fundraising initiatives as part of a 4-person, remotely-based development team that raises and processes over $4M per year. The team member will work across departments, ensuring that deadlines are kept on Development projects, reporting is accurate and timely, and staff and vendors are informed of changes to deliverables. This role is instrumental in the success of annual campaigns, fundraising events, and expanding donor engagement across the country.

The Development Operations Manager reports to the Director of Annual Giving and Events and works with Keshet staff across the country. Candidates must be based in the Greater Boston area and able to commute to Keshet offices in Jamaica Plain (moving to Newton in 2023). The position is currently partially remote, with a minimum of one day per week in the office. We expect this will increase to three days per week when the offices fully re-open.

About Keshet:

Keshet works for the full equality of all LGBTQ Jews and our families in Jewish life. We turn values at the heart of Judaism—equality, inclusion, and human dignity—into action in Jewish communities because when we stand by and allow LGBTQ Jews to be excluded, we hold all of Jewish life back from reaching its full potential. We equip Jewish organizations with the tools to build LGBTQ-affirming communities, create spaces for queer Jewish teens to feel valued for their whole selves, and mobilize the Jewish community to fight for LGBTQ justice nationwide.

As an organization that teaches the importance of proactive LGBTQ inclusive messages and actions, Keshet recognizes the similar need to make our commitment to racial equity and justice clear and explicit. We commit to embed a racial equity and justice lens into Keshet’s leadership and staff structure, political analysis, organizational policies, communications, and program content.

Keshet's national office is in Boston with offices in the Bay Area, Chicago, New York, and Florida, as well.
