Children International is seeking a Regional Director of Philanthropy to provides overall direction for the major gift programs in the West Coast to help ensure the growth and vitality of Children International.
Children International is a nonprofit humanitarian organization working to eradicate poverty around the world. At CI, we believe that every child matters and that it is simply unacceptable that over a billion children live in poverty. The CI approach is to invest in our kids and youth by providing a safe place, a caring team and a path out of poverty through programs in health, education, empowerment and employment. We provide this support for 250,000 children in 13 agencies working in 10 countries around the world.
The work Children International does on behalf of children in poverty is funded primarily through a one-to-one sponsorship model. We are transforming our funding model to dramatically increase the support we provide our kids. Additionally, we are taking our programs from good to great by elevating our people systems and practices worldwide. That’s where you come in.
The Regional Director of Philanthropy role will have a strong emphasis on discovering and developing new relationships and funding partnerships. This position’s duties include, but are not limited to, making personal visits and written solicitations, hosting introductory events, editing proposals and reports, timely correspondence and reporting, and initiating meetings with individuals and private foundation prospects and donors. In order to succeed, the director must be a dynamic and engaging fundraiser who can use effective techniques and resources to articulate clear and compelling cases for supporting Children International’s transformative mission.
