Are you interested in working as part of an innovative team charged with shaping and implementing community impact strategies?  Is coordination your middle name?  Does your heart skip a beat when you hear the term “donor-centered fundraising”? If organization and attention to detail make you happy, this role with the Northwest Credit Union Foundation might be just the position you are looking for.

NWCUF is rapidly evolving both our programmatic and fundraising efforts to help improve the financial health of people and communities across our region.  As our organization evolves, we have a rare opportunity for an experienced Community Impact Coordinator to support the team in executing on fundraising and programmatic priorities.
