About you:

You care about Oregon and Oregonians. You believe change is possible and a new approach to firearm safety and policy can make our state a stronger, safer place. Ideally, you:

Understand historic and structural racism: You understand, or have a willingness to learn, about how gun violence is connected to historic racism and is rooted in structural inequality. You care about treating all people fairly.

Excited to make change and address root causes: We know we can prevent gun violence and gun suicides. But it will take all of us. To be truly effective, we must work across issues as we know gun violence and gun suicide is deeply connected to a lack of resources in our communities. 

Proudly represent the Oregon Alliance for Gun Safety: You want to be part of an organization bringing a new approach to help bridge the divide on guns. You’ll proudly represent the Oregon Alliance at a variety of events in the community.

Comfortable asking people to get involved in a cause you care about: Whether you have a ton of fundraising experience, or just a little, you feel excited about asking people to get involved and support this work.

Valued experiences:

  • Prefer a candidate with a minimum of 2 years prior experience in nonprofit fundraising, communications, or marketing experience. To be hired at the higher end of our salary level, candidates will be expected to have significant experience scaling nonprofit fundraising initiatives, such as building a monthly giving program, etc.

  • Prefer a candidate with experience using EveryAction or other donor/fundraising database systems and software.

Please note: if you are really passionate and excited about the opportunity to work in gun violence prevention, but have more or less experience in fundraising, we hope you’ll still apply - we have flexibility to find the right person for this work.

In addition, the Oregon Alliance will provide support towards healthcare. We provide a generous time off package and believe in a healthy work life balance. We also support opportunities for professional development and community service for all staff.

The Oregon Alliance for Gun Safety is an equal opportunity employer. 

We’re on a mission to end gun-related tragedies.

We are a nonprofit and advocacy organization focused on preventing gun deaths and injuries. We support and advocate for both community-led solutions as well as evidence-based policies that have been proven to save lives. 

We are an Alliance of individuals and organizations who care about the same thing: wanting to keep our kids, families, neighbors and friends safe. We partner with a wide range of organizations and communities across our state, working to bridge the needs of urban and rural Oregonians, youth, veterans, law enforcement, and communities of color who are most impacted by gun violence. 

We are focused on finding shared solutions -- and avoiding the kinds of political divisions that too often define this debate. We respect firearm owners, and understand that firearms are part of many Oregonians' lifestyles and families. We believe the path to creating safer communities means working with all Oregonians.
