Project Open Hand has been delivering meals with love to the critically ill and elderly for over 30 years. Currently we raise approximately $13 million in contributed revenue from the private sector (50%) and the government (50%). We do this through contracts, corporate and foundation grants, events and individual donor efforts.
The Manager, Institutional Giving (MIG) is primarily responsible for managing a $2M grants program from private foundations and corporations and growing it to 4M+ over the next two years. The MIG will also provide support in securing $6.5M in government funding. The role of the MIG includes, but is not exclusive to research, writing proposals, reporting, funder communications, maintaining grant records and managing the grants calendar, collaborating with administrative, program and executive staff.
The Manager, Institutional Giving is also 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 within the San Francisco Bay Area institutional giving environment; however, it is expanding towards a greater statewide and national reach. The MIG works collaboratively with POH's individual giving and event teams to strategically manage and maximize a wide community of supporters. The MIG reports to the Chief Development Officer, will oversee all development functions as they pertain to managing a portfolio of institutional funders and prospective funders, and will be an important internal and external voice in promoting a culture of philanthropy.
