About the Role
Reporting to the Senior Fundraising Manager, the Major Donor Manager sits within the Communications, Engagement and Fundraising team. We are looking for an experienced, fundraising professional to join our team, to help us identify, approach and cultivate relationships with key individuals who have the potential to make major contributions to our work.
The role involves developing plans that feed into the USPG fundraising strategy to increase engagement from high net worth individuals and cultivating new high value donors. Managing the major donor income and expenditure budgets, ensuring all activity meets income targets and expenditure remains on budget. Developing and managing a pipeline of donors to approach and build relationships, securing high value (5 and 6 figure) gifts. Hosting meetings, presentations and special events to network with high value donors and cultivate new relationships.
This is a really exciting opportunity to develop and deliver a new major donor programme as well as working with our Global Mission team on developing the case for support and impact reporting.
You are a confident, passionate fundraiser and relationship manager with the proven ability to motivate and inspire others to give. You have experience of implementing fundraising plans, developing a pipeline of high value donors and securing high value (5 and 6 figure) gifts. You are pro-active and self-sufficient, equally comfortable working alone or as part of a team to achieve shared goals. You are target driven with a hands-on approach, adapting as necessary to carry out a range of tasks from writing proposals, managing events and researching prospective donors.
You are highly personable, with the ability to engage supporters and stakeholders with diplomacy and persuasiveness. An excellent communicator with strong writing skills and the ability to adapt to different audiences, you will be comfortable working closely with senior leadership, trustees and influencers to unlock peer connections and leverage new support. You are enthusiastic about collaborating with others across the organisation and enjoy working in an innovative creative environment.
