What Skills Does An EA Need To Support A Fundraiser?
Supporting a fundraiser requires an EA to possess excellent organizational, communication, and interpersonal skills. They should be able to manage the fundraiser’s schedule, arrange meetings, and handle correspondence efficiently. An EA should be able to track donations, grants, and other fundraising activities and provide regular updates. Knowledge of fundraising principles and practices would be useful, as well as the ability to create presentations, reports, and other documents related to fundraising. Attention to detail, accuracy, and the ability to work under pressure are also essential in this role, as an EA supporting a fundraiser would often have to work under tight deadlines. The EA should be proactive, adaptable, and able to work independently to support the fundraiser in their day-to-day operations.
