CWC is hiring for a Development & Communications Manager!

Santa Cruz’s vision is becoming a reality and the Coastal Watershed Council is a leading force in creating that change. CWC is transforming the San Lorenzo River into a community asset and a destination that Santa Cruz is drawn to and proud of. So many other communities you’re visited have a thriving urban riverfront but here in Santa Cruz ours is enjoyed by a small but growing number of river lovers. CWC is improving water quality, restoring habitat and bringing positive energy to the river and surrounding Santa Cruz Riverwalk by leading family-friendly events and science field trips, after-school programs and summer camps with kids. Guided by our theory of change, we’re confident we’re doing the right things – and now we want to do more of them. That requires better communicating our work to the community and raising more funds for the water quality, habitat and river safety and access work.

In a newly created position, the Development and Communications Manager will join the CWC team and own the river community’s storytelling and take a leadership role in developing fundraising relationships, including cultivating and stewarding donors and seeking grants from private foundations, state and federal agencies and general donations and major gifts from community members and companies. Want to shape the future of Santa Cruz and work at what we’re crafting as the very best workplace in this town? Learn more and apply.
