New Role with the Invictus Games Foundation: Development Manager – Major Gifts
This is an exciting opportunity to join the Invictus Games Foundation in a new role to support the growth and diversification of our international programmes.
The Invictus Games Foundation (through the Invictus Games) supports veterans and service personnel who have been wounded, injured or sick (WIS) during, or as a consequence of, their military service.
We believe they all deserve to be able to lead a purposeful and fulfilling life.
“I found myself in a very difficult position, in a very dark place,
and the Invictus Games provided me that light at the end of the tunnel.”
In 2014 we created a blueprint for the Invictus Games, which has now been delivered in four cities. The fifth taking place in The Hague in May in 2020.
We are now seeking a senior entrepreneurial major gifts fundraiser to join our small and agile team.
You will be personally committed to those that have served and motivated to support our ambitious income growth plans.
Within a small team and reporting to the Development Director you will be at ease working with senior executives, philanthropists and other supporters to build relationships and secure long-term gifts. You will be equally happy being hands-on and getting stuck-in to support the wider team.
IGF appointed its first Development Director in early 2019 to diversify its income streams, develop commercial partnerships, collaborate with international teams and identify philanthropic programmes. With recent success, IGF is seeking to expand its fundraising capacity to support its evolving strategy and aspirations to support the international WIS community. This new post will support the team to double its income from £1m to £2m by 2021.
