How We Work

  • ASP exists to inspire and support organizations to boldly achieve their goals by building innovative fundraising, board governance, strategic planning and executive search partnerships with clients.
  • Our ASP team environment is one filled with purpose, energy and dedication to each other and our clients. We are inspired by trends, motivated by change and grounded by proven techniques and experiences.
  • Plus, we all really like and respect each other and try to keep life in perspective. Culture is everything to us.
  • But we are selective. Over the past 10 years, we’ve built a national reputation by assembling an amazing core team of advisors and clients. We feel we know how important certain interpersonal skills are to making relationships work and outcomes happen.
  • We are excited to welcome a new team member to help expand our local, regional and national presence and, ultimately, enhance our vibrant work culture and daily energy.
  • We believe in and offer a “balanced” work environment. While the demands and deliverables of the work are many, the flexibility to have a personal life is encouraged and supported.


  • Bachelor’s degree required.
  • 3-5 years demonstrated fund development or similar experience a must.
  • Excellent written, verbal and interpersonal skills.
  • Outstanding time management skills and experience handling multiple projects at once.
  • Experience (and/or a willingness to learn) presenting to small and large groups is desired.
  • Some travel including overnight stays is required.
  • The ideal candidate is a dynamic, detail-oriented self-starter who learns quickly, is able to anticipate the next step in a strategy and works well as part of a team.
  • Patience and diplomacy a must.
  • Computer literate; knowledgeable of Microsoft Office products such as Outlook, Excel, Word and PowerPoint. Experience with Prezi is a plus.
  • Should be accessible for meetings before and after regular work hours as necessary.
