PL+US: Paid Leave for the US is hiring a part-time (with benefits) Development Associate (DA) to help support our groundbreaking work to win paid family leave for everyone in the U.S. by 2022. 

In just three short years, PL+US has won family leave for nearly 6 million people and tripled in size. We’ve won change at some of the top employers in the country, including Walmart and Starbucks, and we’re taking that momentum into the fight to win national public policy. Paid leave is poised to take off as the next high-profile national issue.

You will be responsible for assisting the team in the implementation of fundraising activities, campaigns, and special events. Key duties will include maintaining the PL+US donor database, donor correspondence, donor research, gift tracking, maintaining the PL+US gratitude calendar, and fundraising event support.
