There are 2.2 million Americans who do not have running water or basic plumbing, while at least 44 million more do not have clean water that is safe to drink. Founded in 2012, DigDeep is a human rights non-profit organization working to ensure that every American has equitable access to clean, running water and sanitation forever. DigDeep seeks to close America's Water Gap in our lifetimes through a four-pronged Impact Model incorporating community-led solutions, innovative research, public engagement, and sector-building.
DigDeep is growing fast. The organization won the 2018 US Water Prize for its Navajo Water Project, which has brought clean, running water to hundreds of Native families across New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah. Now we're expanding that work across the country. Our operating budget has more than doubled to north of $6M; we've built new relationships with major foundations, trade groups, and companies who are passionate about our work, and we have a grassroots donor base of more than 40,000 Americans behind us.
DigDeep is seeking a highly motivated Strategic Partnerships Manager (SPM) to join an energetic and collaborative development team during an exciting time of growth. Reporting to the Chief Relationship Officer, the Strategic Partnerships Manager is responsible for taking the lead on DigDeep’s relationship management, engagement, and communication strategies with our partners, including corporate, foundation, public funders. The SPM is responsible for writing compelling proposals, reports and other materials that inspire investment and deepen engagement from current and prospective funders securing six- and seven-figure gifts.
Collaborating closely with other development team members, communications staff, contractors, and program team members the SPM will create short- and long-term plans for partner retention, diversification of revenue streams, and identification of new partnership opportunities. The ideal candidate will be an active listener, engaging storyteller, a quick learner and problem solver, and will demonstrate extreme attention to details, ability to manage multiple tasks, and a deep commitment to water as a human right.
