Major and Corporate Donor Fundraiser

Hand in Hand International is looking for an entrepreneurial, self-managed Fundraiser to join our award-winning team. Working primarily with Major Donors from across the UK, US and Europe – as well as with corporate supporters as needed – you will help secure the ongoing success of a team that has grown our income by 65 percent in the last three years.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Identify new prospects, with a particular focus on Major Donors.
  • Secure meetings with new and existing donors.
  • Personally solicit gifts as and when appropriate to achieve an agreed income target.
  • Write tailored and compelling fundraising proposals.
  • Maintain and develop relationships with your own portfolio of donors.
  • Tailor and adapt reports to major donor and corporate donors.
  • Lead a highly successful village sponsorship programme.
  • Develop innovative new fundraising packages with your colleagues in the fundraising team.

Essential requirements:

  • Experience of Major Gifts Fundraising is highly desirable. However, we welcome candidates who have worked with wealth clients in a commercial setting.
  • An understanding of international development or philanthropy is highly desirable.
  • Exceptional negotiating skills with Donors, and colleagues from Afghanistan, East Africa and India.
  • Experience securing four- to six-figure gifts from Major or Corporate Donors would be highly desirable.
  • Highly polished telephone manner and excellent English writing skills are essential.
