Description

Join Fistula Foundation to make a meaningful difference in the lives of women!

Obstetric fistula is a debilitating childbirth injury that afflicts at least one million women in Africa and Asia. It leaves a woman incontinent and, as a result, too often abandoned by her family and shunned by her community. Surgery is the only cure, which we deliver through partners in 30 countries. Since 2009, we have provided more than 85,000 free, life-transforming surgeries to women in need.

We seek a Philanthropy Associate who is eager to work closely with and support the VP of Philanthropy and CEO as they engage with FF’s most generous donors through the stages of cultivating, soliciting, closing, and stewarding major gifts. Our ideal candidate will possess strong communications and project management skills and is comfortable working in an entrepreneurial culture where teamwork is crucial for effectively coordinating deadlines and workstreams. The capacity and desire to directly manage a portfolio of donors and step into a donor-facing role in the future would be a strength.

The Philanthropy Associate will be an integral part of our team that provides excellent high-touch engagement with major donors. We expect to provide valuable experience and opportunities for career growth in this position. The title, scope of responsibilities, and salary are somewhat flexible based on the candidate’s skills and experience. If you are an extraordinarily qualified candidate, or a recent graduate with a strong interest, please do not hesitate to apply.

Key Responsibilities 

  • Provide project management and communications support for the Fistula Foundation major gifts program.
  • Coordinate customization of mailings to major donors with the VP of Philanthropy, CEO, and rest of the development team.
  • Craft custom proposals and reports and execute personalized cultivation and stewardship for major donors and prospects in coordination with the VP of Philanthropy.
  • Conduct donor research and summarize results.
  • Provide logistical and administrative support for events and travel programs. 
  • Regularly track and report on major gift program metrics.
  • Respond to special requests from the VP of Philanthropy and CEO. 
  • Potential to directly manage a portfolio of donors.

Ideal Candidate

  • At least 2-3 years of nonprofit, communications, or project management experience. 
  • Excellent communications skills, both written and oral; ability to clearly and concisely articulate Fistula Foundation’s work and influence potential and existing donors. 
  • Passion for international development and commitment to advancing the status of women around the world.
  • Ability to quickly and positively react to new opportunities as they arise while managing existing and competing priorities. 
  • Able to work independently, but skilled at considering the needs and time constraints of multiple stakeholders for projects that will involve working across teams. 
  • Strong working knowledge of Microsoft Office (particularly Excel) required; experience with SalesForce and/or Raiser’s Edge preferred. Fast study of other technology platforms.

Benefits and Culture

The Fistula Foundation offers a comprehensive benefits package that includes health insurance, a 403b retirement plan (with a generous employer match), a subsidy for gym membership, a dog-friendly office, and a generous vacation plan that begins in the first year of employment. We also offer a competitive salary that starts at $65,000 to $75,000 based on qualifications, with the potential for performance-based bonuses and increases.

This position is based in San Jose, California with a hybrid work model.

We believe that our work is enhanced by a diversity of thought and perspectives. We are an equal opportunity employer and seek a diverse workforce. Applicants from all backgrounds, especially from communities of color, are encouraged to apply.
