Tasks include data entry, corresponding with donors and potential donors via phone and email, website updates and/or modification, and other clerical duties as assigned. Our [online] annual Auction Gala is in May 2021, so this would be support leading up to, for, and after the event.

Must have off-campus state work study, be dependable and able to work with others and have an ability to keep accurate records while multi-tasking. Some academic work with students possible. We love to have work studies stay with us long term, and will have lots of opportunities over the summer and next year, too! We give all work studies a fully-paid Orca card for the use for the duration of their time with us. Our office is open Mon-Fri 8:30am-4pm. Hours within those times are very flexible and we will accommodate changing school schedules. Rate is $16.69 per hour.
Minimum Qualifications:
Ability to lift up to 20 lbs (ie a box of paper). Experience working in an office setting or with children is a plus, but all backgrounds are considered. Must be able to pass a Washington State criminal background check.
