JWI addresses the cycle of violence against women and girls through three pillars of work: gender-based violence, economic security, and women’s leadership. When women can live in safe homes and healthy relationships; when we have control over our finances; and when we have women leaders supporting each other and building workplaces that are safe and equitable, we will live in a world where women may thrive.

Now in our 125th year, JWI is uniquely poised for growth. Responding to our 2021 research report assessing the unmet needs of Jewish survivors and the domestic violence programs serving the Jewish community, JWI launched the National Center on Domestic and Sexual Violence in the Jewish Community and the Collaborative of Jewish Domestic Violence Programs and the Women’s Financial Empowerment Institute. Our leadership programs engage young professional women in D.C., New York, Chicago, Denver, L.A., San Francisco, San Diego, and Tel Aviv. We are now launching similar networks for women over 35.


We are seeking a development coordinator to manage our donor database and support all fundraising initiatives.

Responsibilities will include:


  • Manage JWI’s database, including updating and maintaining information on constituents in Salsa CRM; i.e. address changes, phone number changes, name changes, etc.
  • Process gifts and pledges, including entering daily donations from the website, credit cards, and live checks.
  • Print and mail gift acknowledgment letters.
  • Send tribute and memorial cards.
  • Run queries, pull data, and create reports as needed.

Chapter Services

  • Respond to chapter inquiries and requests in a timely manner.
  • Mail chapter member dues renewals.
  • Create and run chapter membership and fundraising reports.
  • Support chapter fundraising efforts as well as chapter and membership outreach.
  • Send fundraising reports to chapters on a quarterly basis.

General Fundraising Support

  • Support the National Library Initiative.
  • Track grant applications.
  • Coordinate with Finance Department by sending monthly donation and online giving reports.
  • Support fundraisers including Women to Watch and the Flower Project.
  • Mail all FP cards.
  • Coordinate with FP shelters for flower delivery.
  • Track fundraising.
  • Additional administrative duties as assigned.

  • Is comfortable and confident working in a database;
