Job Description

Rocky Mountain Immigrant Advocacy Network (RMIAN-pronounced “Remain”) provides free immigration legal services and social services to individuals in immigration detention and to children and their families throughout Colorado. RMIAN believes that justice for immigrants means justice for all. 

As a growing nonprofit, RMIAN aims to be as efficient and effective with the resources we have. In fundraising, that means a small but powerful team - and this role is essential to our development efforts. Reporting to the Development Director, the Funding Engagement Coordinator will be a key partner and collaborator who provides critical support for RMIAN’s fundraising efforts.

This position is meant for someone eager to learn who has had at least some exposure to nonprofit development (at least 1 year of experience to understand the dynamics and processes), who loves getting the job done efficiently and with a high level of attention to detail. 


The ideal candidate:

  • Is passionate about social justice, with an interest in and curiosity about immigration law and social services - this person has worked in a social justice organization and has been following immigration stories in recent years.
  • Is often described as a “doer” by their colleagues - someone who can be relied on to take a project to completion within the timeline requested, who finds joy in routine tasks that keep the team going, and who asks for help when needed.
  • Has 1+ years of development experience, including work with fundraising databases and donor acknowledgements, and event coordination or support.
  • Is a great short-form writer and storyteller – they ask questions and listen carefully to capture the details and find the connections that others can relate to and has some experience with translating that information into engaging, short articles, letters, emails, and posts that help drive people to action.
  • Has full professional, native / bilingual proficiency in speaking and writing in Spanish – this person supports the principles of language equity and is committed to supporting inclusive communications.
  • Is an organizational whiz. This person excels in handling details and multiple projects running in parallel, methodically creating and working through checklists. This is someone who might color-code their calendar or create a spreadsheet to plan a trip.
  • Has a desire to learn and grow - this is someone who is eager to build their skills and take on new challenges as they get comfortable with their role.
