Sulgrave Manor Trust needs an experienced and hands-on fundraiser to kickstart an endowment campaign to build on our modest fund. With generous supporters, both in the UK and USA, the Trust is ready to begin formal fundraising and developing its relationships to secure the future sustainability of Sulgrave Manor and the Trust's charitable objectives.
Origninal home of the Special Relationship, Sulgrave Manor was built in 1539 by the ancestors of George Washington, first president of the USA. Founded in 1914, today Sulgrave Manor Trust preserves the Manor and its museum collections about George Washington, his family, and the close connections between Britain and the United States for public benefit and promotes its historic and symbolic role in Anglo-American relations. Programmes of activity focus on themes of leadership, collaboration and tolerance.
Mainly home based, the Fundraising Manager will be on site at the Manor at least one day per week and there may be travel related to the role as the campaign gets underway.
The Fundraising Manager will develop and manage regular giving to the Trust; attract legacy pledges; identify and cultivate donors for capital gifts; support grant applications and develop other appropriate fundraising initiatives.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
