Donor Relations Coordinator

Founded in 2008, Preemptive Love Coalition exists to go where no one else will go, to love the people no one else will love; to begin the end of violence; to bring about the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.

We do this by providing emergency relief and investing in long-term economic development for communities caught in conflict. We pursue peace and reconciliation around the world, on the frontlines right where we live, through local, chapter-based giving communities.

The Donor Relations Coordinator plays a critical role in donor engagement, donor stewardship, and donor retention through impact reporting, thank you calls, thank you cards, and automated stewardship pieces.
