We’re a global Christian humanitarian organization. We partner with children, families, and their communities to empower them as they reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice. For nearly 70 years, World Vision has followed Jesus’ example to show unconditional love to the poor and oppressed. We serve every child regardless of faith.
We are looking for an exceptional fundraiser who enjoys networking and locating new giving prospects. You will have the opportunity to represent World Vision US in speaking engagements that are directly related to major gift development. As a Major Gifts Area Representative or Director, you will maximize World Visions ministry by developing long-term, effective relationships with individuals and foundations capable of providing $25,000 or more in financial resources, with the goal of providing them with a deeper understanding of holistic needs in the world, and boldly challenging them to respond sacrificially to those needs through the ministry of World Vision. At World Vision we are going to the ends of the earth, often where no one else goes, to pull up the roots of poverty and plant the seeds of change. Help us carry out our Christian organization’s mission, vision, and strategies by managing and coordinating the integrated regional fundraising efforts for Major Gifts Program, National accounts and Gift Planning.
