Are you experienced in leading stewardship management to ensure effective grant management? mothers2mothers (m2m) is seeking a diligent, creative and passionate Donor Relations Manager to join our Strategic Partnerships Team and provide the highest level of support across the entire portfolio of partnerships. You will be a critical asset in helping m2m position itself as a partner of choice. This role can be based in the UK, South Africa or US (LA or NY).

The Strategic Partnerships Team at mothers2mothers (m2m) seeks to deliver exceptional partnerships with a whole portfolio of Mulilateral, Bilateral, Trust, Foundation, Corporate and Philanthropy partners in order to deliver our global aims.

Through a peer-to-peer approach, these ‘Mentor Mothers’ deliver a range of health services, advice, and support to women and their families. Started in Cape Town, South Africa in 2001 with an initial focus on preventing mother-to-child transmission of HIV, m2m has innovated and built on its strengths and now provides family-centred support for a range of related health and social issues spanning pregnancy, birth, childhood, and adolescence. It also partners with governments and other NGOs on the adoption of its programme to spread the Mentor Mother Model and its benefits. m2m has a track record of scaling its services and proven impact. To date, m2m has reached over 11M women and children under two, and created more than 11,000 jobs for African women living with HIV.
