Is this you?

Would you be invigorated to work for a movement that is discovering the cures for blinding eye diseases?

Your peers would describe you as a proactive self-starter, which you would humbly agree. You have successfully sought out new relationships for your organization and have found ways to continually engage and involve your corporate partners. You would consider yourself an “up and comer”; you are extremely motivated and have a high tolerance for ambiguity.  You have a strong command of the written language and feel comfortable creating proposals and writing grants.

You may currently be in a fundraising support role and you are looking to work on the front-line. You are known as a ‘go getter’ and not afraid to pick up the phone and speak to anyone – though beyond that you find ways to make a meaningful connection with folks.

You are extremely organized and don’t get distracted easily. You know how to effectively identify and foster corporate relationships. Ideally you have successfully worked in corporate fundraising within the charitable sector and have secured support from corporations and their foundations in the form of philanthropic gifts, sponsorship, cause marketing, and workplace fundraising including third party events.

You pride yourself in your relationship building (and maintaining) ability. You aren’t afraid of a challenge, in fact, challenges are what keep you going. You are known for your work ethic and want to inspire colleagues with your driven and motivational personality and work ethic. You are a culture-setter who cares about your personal wellbeing and the wellbeing of your team members as much as you care about the cause.
