The Director of Advancement is a senior member of the Global Engagement and Communications (GECO) team and is responsible for the overall design and execution of Jhpiego’s Individual Giving Program. The program includes initiatives that range from annual giving to leadership and major gifts, to fundraising and cultivation events as well as the communications and cultivation activities associated with each fundraising program. The Director will work closely with the President and CEO, the Vice President of GECO, and an Advisory Board to cultivate and inspire support from major donors. S/he will manage and mentor a team of three, including two Major Gift Officers and a Senior Development Coordinator. The team is raising approximately $1 million annually, with a strategic vision for growing the program to $2 million annually by 2020.
The Director will report to the Vice President of GECO and will work closely with others throughout Jhpiego, especially the organization’s senior leadership team and program staff. The ideal candidate will be a self-starter with a resourceful and entrepreneurial spirit capable of managing a team that will strengthen the fundraising program by defining funding opportunities that match Jhpiego’s institutional priorities and strategically engaging individuals with the organization and its leadership to inspire and deepen their support.
