Job description

At a pivotal moment in AfriKids’ history, join us to take our fundraising to the next level. We have a bold strategy to reach more children than ever over the next decade and you can help make it possible. 

Summary of role

As Philanthropy Manager, you will be responsible for raising critical funds to enable our rapid growth and the expansion of our impact. Reporting to the Fundraising Director, you will be responsible for growing unrestricted and restricted income through developing relationships with AfriKids’ existing major donors and prospective major donors, writing compelling and tailored proposals to increase our reach. You will design effective ways to continue to engage, inspire and approach them, ensuring all donors have a brilliant experience supporting AfriKids. You will also spend some time identifying new prospective donors and developing lasting relationships with them. As Philanthropy Manager, you will line manage the Supporter Care and Fundraising Officer, and thus will also be the budget holder for our small individual giving and community/challenge programme. 

Joining our small but award-winning team, you will work closely with the Director of Fundraising, a Philanthropy & Partnerships New Business Manager and the team in Ghana, so strong relationship management skills will be essential. You are a values-driven, confident and determined fundraiser who thrives in a people orientated, target driven role.

Key responsibilities and duties

Managing relationships with prospects, donors and volunteers

  • Through meetings and correspondence, you will develop excellent relationships with existing major donors, communicating the impact of their support and keeping them engaged to maximise the value of AfriKids’ major donor income long-term
  • Where appropriate, you will involve AfriKids’ senior staff and the Board of Trustees to make the most of opportunities to engage and build relationships with existing and potential major donors
  • You will create and develop inspiring and compelling funding proposals, feedback and impact reports for major donors, ensuring they understand the impact of their gifts and are inspired to continue supporting

Securing donations

  • You will come up with great ideas for how to effectively build relationships, and engage and inspire people to support AfriKids with major gifts, ideally through multi-year commitments eg. events
  • You will manage a portfolio of both current and potential new major donors, to secure four to five figure donations and pledges to transform lives, delivering against an ambitious team target
  • You will ask major donors for financial gifts and engage appropriate senior leadership to increase the likelihood of a successful ask
  • Through relationship building, you will understand the motivations of each existing and potential new major donor, identifying the most suitable projects for them to support (where appropriate), enhancing their long-term value and experience as an AfriKids supporter
  • You will research, develop and write high quality partnership proposals, cases for support, appeal letters and reports to secure income.

Identifying new major supporters

  • A portion of your time will be spent building and developing a pool of realistic major donor prospects who have the potential to make a big difference to young lives with AfriKids by giving four to five figure gifts
  • You will work closely with current major donors and volunteers to identify potential new donors, and come up with effective plans to engage them and bring in new major gifts
  • You will identify potential new high-value donors through networking e.g. attending events


  • Prepare phased budgets and reforecasts in line with activity plans and progress to ensure the value and timing of planned restricted and unrestricted income to the organisation is accurate.
  • Develop an excellent knowledge of AfriKids; work, liaise with colleagues to prepare and present high-quality information such as tailored presentations and proposals for the donor.
  • Maintain an awareness of philanthropy and corporate giving trends, news, events and legislation in the UK, USA and Ghana. Be aware of the changing external environment to pick up on opportunities and keep abreast of current trends, circumstances or topical issues that will enhance the event or the charity.
  • Work to an agreed target to deliver a team income target annually.
  • Create and maintain accurate records in line with GDPR on the CRM database of all leads, knowledge about partner organisations, individuals and any communications sent out/received as well as fundraising forecasts.  Develop and use reports to analyse performance and activity.
  • Assist with arranging event, including but not limited to launch events and cultivation events
  • Represent AfriKids at fundraising and other events as required as well as at occasional corporate and partner events
  • Undertake other tasks that are within the scope, spirit and purpose of the job, to contribute to fundraising objectives and those of AfriKids
