Position: Database Coordinator

Status: Full time, Non-exempt

Reports to: Director of Development

The Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy is seeking an individual with meticulous attention to detail who is passionate about the management of data and finds satisfaction in the smooth coordination of development operations for a full-time position as Database Coordinator.

The Conservancy’s five-member Development team currently raises ~$1.6M a year for the park’s operating and capital budgets. To date, the Conservancy’s fundraising success has been based significantly on corporate and foundation giving. Since the opening of the park 12 years ago, The Greenway has helped to generate billions of dollars in development along its edges, and the Conservancy is now poised to deepen the philanthropic engagement of the residents who live along The Greenway, as well as the wider community of individual donors who care passionately about issues including urban greenspace, organic horticulture, and public art. Every member of our team will be critical to our fundraising success, which will enable the organization to expand programs, deepen community partnerships, and undertake major capital improvements.
