USA - Philanthropy Manager

Closing date: 5.00pm on Thursday 8th December 2016

Salary: $59,970 gross per annum

Location: New York, USA

We are a registered US non-profit with 501(c)(3) status, working in collaboration with other Restless Development Hubs around the world. We are an essential strategic hub for the global agency, and work on policy influence, investment partnerships and thought leadership and technical assistance on youth-led development. Launched 5 years ago in New York, the US Hub has steadily grown and is now in an exciting era of increasing growth, influence and opportunity. We are looking for a passionate and hardworking fundraiser to
grow our philanthropy strategy and income from major and other individual donors.

The Philanthropy Manager is a vital new role within the small team at Restless Development USA, responsible for raising unrestricted and core funding from major donors, employee giving initiatives, and other individual donors. Across Restless Development and in the US Hub, the majority of our funding comes from multi-year restricted grants for programs and initiatives. To ensure we are reaching our aims of maintaining a balanced budget and sustainable growth, while enabling innovation and flexibility, we are expanding our team in the US with a view to growing unrestricted or core income. The Philanthropy Manager will be key to this, working closely with the US Country Director and Board of Directors to network with and cultivate new and current financial supporters.

While we have started to build foundations for major donor and individual giving, this is a newer area and will be a great opportunity for the right candidate to build and grow a structure and portfolio that will have a transformative effect on Restless Development’s ability to achieve our new global strategy.

Please send a completed application form to by Thursday 8th December 2016. Please note that we DO NOT accept CVs, resumes and cover letters and that applications will be considered on a rolling basis with candidates being invited to interview throughout this first stage of the recruitment process.
