Business unit: Fundraising & Supporter Development
Department: Fundraising & Supporter Dev Office
King’s College London is committed to making the world a better place, and since its foundation in 1829, King’s students and staff have dedicated themselves in the service of society. Service at King’s embodies our commitment to delivering positive social impact at home in London, across the UK and around the world.
One of our flagship international Service initiatives is the King’s Global Health Partnerships (KGHP), which works with health facilities, academic institutions and governments to strengthen health systems and improve the quality of care in Somaliland, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Sierra Leone and Zambia. With some of this work dating back twenty years, KGHP brings together expertise from King’s College London, King’s Health Partners’ NHS Trusts and international partners to educate, train and support healthcare workers, strengthen healthcare and training institutions, and enhance national health policies and systems.
To date, the work of KGHP has been supported through a blended funding model, combining institutional funding from King’s College London and King’s Health Partners with income from statutory donors (primarily the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, previously the Department for International Development), research grants and philanthropic donors. The King’s Global Health Partnerships 10-year strategy articulates an ambition to grow funding, with a significant focus on increasing philanthropic funding. The University is looking to appoint a Major Gift Fundraiser who will focus on generating philanthropic income to support the work of KGHP. This role will suit candidates with experience in raising five and six figure gifts from individuals, trusts and foundations and corporate donations.
The postholder will be responsible for generating philanthropic funds for KGHP from a mixed portfolio of high-net-worth individuals, Trusts and Foundations and Corporate prospects. Working with colleagues from across Fundraising & Supporter Development and KGHP, they will help to develop and implement the KGHP fundraising strategy, establishing the foundations for sustainable income growth and pipeline development. This will include developing the philanthropic narrative and fundraising priorities for the partnership; leading on the development of funding proposals; and engaging and cultivating new prospects with the work of KGHP.
