Project Open Hand has been delivering meals with love to the critically ill and elderly for over 30 years. Currently we raise about $10 million in contributed revenue from the private sector (65%) and the government (35%). We do this through contracts, events, direct mail, corporate and foundation grants and major donor efforts. The organization is finalizing a robust three-year strategic plan which will be an ideal launching off point to think about new partners to help us realize our goals and answer the growing needs of our community.
The Institutional Giving Officers' primary role is to lead the strategic management of Project Open Hand's $5mm corporate, foundation and government relationship portfolio for purposes of maximizing the philanthropic investment of these constituencies. The IGO is responsible for the development and execution of strategies leading to significantly increased exposure, engagement and fundraising success from these constituencies. The geographic focus is mainly on the San Francisco Bay Area institutional giving environment, but as the organization evolves, this focus will encompass a greater national reach. The Institutional Giving Officer works collaboratively with POH's individual giving and event teams to strategically manage and maximize a wide community of supporters. The Institutional Giving Officer reports to the Vice President of Development and will oversee all development functions as they pertain to managing a portfolio of institutional prospects and will be an important internal and external voice in promoting a culture of philanthropy.
In partnership with the Vice President of Development and working closely with the Board of Directors and Co-CEO's, the position will develop and implement strategies for:
1. Attracting new relationships and increased levels of commitment from assigned constituents
2. Supporting the stewardship of current donors including the fulfillment of sponsorship benefits
3. Maintaining the grants calendar for annual operating and project specific efforts
4. Leading efforts to discover, identify, understand and match the needs of POH with the goals of the various foundations, corporations and government entities
5. Initiate opportunities for Board members and high level staff members to interact with current and prospective constituents
