World Vision US - National Director, Corporations and Foundations Development
World Vision US has recently retained our executive search firm to assist in locating a National Director for Corporations & Foundations Development.
Founded in 1950, World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization serving the world’s poorest children and families in nearly 100 countries. World Vision, driven by faith, enables the world’s children to realize their God-given potential by tackling the root causes of poverty. World Vision US raises more than $1 billion annually, which is given for the five need areas: food and water, healthcare, education, economic development, and emergency relief. World Vision US, located in the Seattle Area with 1100+ employees, is a growing fundraising arm of World Vision International, which directs the worldwide operations.
Reporting to the Vice President of Major Donor Ministries, the National Director will lead a highly specialized fundraising team in defining and executing a strategy to cultivate and secure significant multi-year funding from select corporations and foundations. He/She will lead the seasoned team with the expectation of raising in excess of $50 million annually in cash gifts. Corporations now support the work with >$250 million in GIK plus employee giving. With both corporate and foundations there is a base with great potential in this sector.
We seek an individual with a minimum of 15 years of organizational experience, with at least 5 years in a key leadership role. This individual will have performed in leadership in corporate social responsibility fundraising or in corporate management of sales and marketing. Demonstrated ability to raise funds or sell intangibles at high levels is expected. Alignment with the mission of World Vision’s service to the poor and those at risk is essential.
Compensation is comparable to other nonprofits and includes a solid benefits package. This is a strategic position with excellent long-term potential doing work of significance.
