As Philanthropy Manager, your key responsibilities will be to manage a portfolio of existing and prospective Major Donors, with particular responsibility for maximising income and engagement from their existing supporters, working closely with key influences, and contributing to identifying new opportunities and to driving the overall major gifts pipeline.
