Media Cause is a full service digital agency for a greater good. Since 2011, we’ve worked with 300+ nonprofit organizations, cause-driven startups, foundations, educators, philanthropists, and social enterprises to accelerate growth and create positive impact in the communities they serve.

Media Cause is looking for a digital fundraising strategist to support our digital fundraising accounts, based in our DC office.

If you agree with these statements, then you’re going to be a good fit at Media Cause:

  • Technology and tools matter and not all CRMs, ESPs, CMSs are created equal. In fact, I have a couple of favorites that have stood out in my work that I would like to discuss.
  • Members or donors? I’ve spent an inordinate amount of time discussing this with colleagues. I can make an argument for both.
  • CPM or CPC? Who cares! I want to know about costs and resources used along the full funnel not just the top. Let’s talk about life time value of folks coming in from retargeting campaigns or the value of converting a crowdfunding participant into an annual fund donor.
  • Digital is just one type of touchpoint in a donor’s (or potential donor’s) relationship with an organization. But they are the most scalable and cost efficient and I can prove that through data.

You’ve got the mindset, but do you have the skills and experience?
