Job description

Sussex Community Foundation is one of the fastest growing community foundations in the UK. We strive to make Sussex a fairer, more equal place, by connecting philanthropists, companies and donors with charities in their local community.

We have a strong track record of raising funds by providing Donor Advised Funds and philanthropy advice to high value donors. Our success is built on the relationships and the trust we build with our supporters. Donations enable us to give grants to local charities today and to build a lasting endowment fund for generations to come.

As Head of Philanthropy, your role would be to lead our fund development strategy and our Philanthropy Team to the next level. We aim to achieve even more ambitious income goals by building strong and lasting relationships with high value donors.

This is an exciting time to join the Foundation. You will inspire donors, supporters and colleagues. You will have the opportunity to shape the strategic goals of our multi-year fundraising campaign, developing and implementing the major donor engagement strategy, and leading the team to grow and manage our portfolio of major donor prospects. We are a small team so you will also need a hands-on approach.

At Sussex Community Foundation, we are working hard to create a diverse and fully inclusive culture where everyone feels valued, regardless of background, identity, or ability. We encourage and welcome applications from people of all backgrounds and different communities. We know there are many ways to gain experience, so if you think you can do the job, please apply and tell us how you meet the criteria.

If you are passionate about supporting local communities to make a difference and building strong relationships with major donors, this a brilliant opportunity to make a real impact.

The closing date for applications is 1st July 2024 midday and we are only accepting applications through the Charity Job portal as we are using the anonymised application function.
