Turning Point USA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2012 by Charlie Kirk. The organization’s mission is to identify, educate, train, and organize students to promote the principles of freedom, free markets, and limited government. Turning Point USA believes that every young person can be enlightened to true free market values. Since its founding, Turning Point USA has embarked on a mission to build the most organized, active, and powerful conservative grassroots activist network on high school and college campuses across the country. With a presence on over 3,500 campuses, Turning Point USA is the largest and fastest-growing youth organization in America.
Job Description: The Alumni Outreach Coordinator is an essential member of the Advancement team and is primarily responsible for leading Turning Point USA’s (TPUSA) alumni program—ultimately helping TPUSA reach its revenue goals and further its mission and vision. The Alumni Outreach Coordinator will join an active and dynamic team that is implementing a development plan to expand and deepen its fundraising efforts.
This is an exciting role for TPUSA—being the largest on-campus conservative youth organization, TPUSA has tens of thousands of donors and alumni whose support and belonging are essential to the TPUSA vision. The successful candidate will have strong organizational skills with a desire to build out a relatively new initiative (the alumni program) at TPUSA, working closely with the Director of Special Projects and the Chief Development Officer to facilitate and monitor a strategic alumni outreach and engagement plan that will be implemented with the support of other members of the Development team.
The candidate must have a personal passion for the principles of freedom, fiscal responsibility, free markets, and limited government, as well as be able to advocate persuasively for these ideas. The qualities that this position requires are strong organizational/operational skills, a strategic mindset, long-term thinking, effective interpersonal and communication skills, and an achievement-oriented personality to drive new initiatives from concept to reality. Experience working at nonprofits is strongly preferred. The ideal candidate, though not necessary, will have previous involvement in libertarian or conservative organizations—but particular preference will be given to an alum of TPUSA’s campus programs.
The primary responsibilities include, but are not limited to the following:
