Direct experience with Bainbridge Island/Puget Sound arts, cultural or public garden nonprofits is preferred.  A college degree, impeccable communications skills (written/oral), budget management expertise, and familiarity with fundraising philosophies are required.  You should be well versed in office computer systems, including common CRM’s used in fundraising.  And equally important, you should have a demonstrated passion for what we do.
