YOU are a talented, results-driven nonprofit communicator who understands the role of development as the fuel for a mission. You are laser-focused on relationships and results through direct engagement with donors, prospects and partner organizations. You’re a creative, team-player who loves telling stories and a strategic thinker who isn’t afraid to write your own copy! 

As the Director of Development and Communications you will focus primarily on serving as an outward-facing representative of TKP, while also building the day-to-day development and communications operations, including: shepherding gifts through internal systems, making sure thank yous and follow-ups are sent, and maintaining a communications calendar to highlight TKP key messages.

WE are The Kilgoris Project. We partner with rural Kenyan communities to operate 12 schools, serving 1,600+ students in early childhood through Class 8 programs. In our holistic model, we provide nutrition and health care support, as well as clean water, trained teachers and school farms for communities around Kilgoris, Kenya. 

Our model works. In an area where 60% of students at government schools fail their high school entry exam, we can boast of 100% transition to high school. And in 2021 we were honored by the Nairobi-based Daima Trust with a National Diversity and Inclusion Award for first-place award in “Best Collaborative Approach to Community-based Development”.

The Kilgoris Project is motivated by Christian faith and maintains an open-door policy: All students are welcome, regardless of religious preference, tribal affiliation, income or family background.

We have a fantastic team—a small U.S. staff, all working remotely, and a larger executive, administrative, and program staff  in Kilgors.  We’re looking for the right person to staff this newly-combined, full-time role.

  • Develop a long-term vision/strategies for increasing major gifts for further sustainability.
  • Conduct prospect strategy and research. 
  • Plan and strategize around prospect predisposition and visits, including engaging other members of the organization as needed. Visit with prospects (in-person, phone, video conference) and make asks, sometimes being the lead and sometimes supporting. Manage follow-up activities.
  • Provide guidance and support to the grant writing and reporting processes.

Communications

  • Develop year-round communications programs--including campaigns (Peer-to-peer, End-of-Year, Monthly donors)
  • Establish and maintain simple systems to make sure donors feel engaged year-round
  • Partner with team and external vendors to communicate TKP’s vision and key messages in brand-appropriate materials (photography, video, graphic pieces)
