Dear Mr. Swanson,
I am writing to apply for the position of Fundraising Manager with the Bennett Foundation. I am a development professional with over 12 years of experience in fund raising for organizations. In my current role as Fundraising Manager for Community Resources Unlimited I solicit donor funds from local community members as well as foundation sources manage each step of the prospecting process and plan donor events.
I am incredibly organized with a strong attention to detail. I am familiar with all aspects of writing requests for proposals at both the individual foundation level as well as through state and federal sources. I am extremely adept at making connections and networking to advance a cause and form partnerships. Supervisors have praised my abilities to follow through on donor prospects turning them into organization contributors. I would be thrilled to have the opportunity to put my skills to work as your new Fundraising Manager.
I have no doubt that you will find me to be an outstanding candidate and would love to speak with you personally to discuss my admirable track record of acquiring funding. Please contact me at your convenience to arrange an interview. I appreciate your time and consideration.
