Under the direction of the National Director of Direct Response & Supporter Cultivation, the Manager of Data Management is responsible for overseeing the organizations database of record (currently ROI Revolution). The manager will also serve as the primary liaison between the direct response/development operations unit and the other fundraising programs in the External Affairs department including Major Gifts, Foundations, Planned Giving, and Online Fundraising and have a full understanding of their primary internal customers.
