We are looking for a Head of Philanthropy

We are excited to be working with Prospectus to search for a new Head of Philanthropy. In this new role, you will be responsible for the implementation of CCF's donor development strategy and maintaining and growing supporter relationships to secure funding for the foundation's incredible work. 

CCF is dedicated to improving the quality of life for people in Cambridgeshire. We do this through working with partners to actively inspire philanthropy and invest in important community programmes through grants - last year 900 grants worth almost £4m were awarded! We also provide leadership, research and a forum for dialogue on critical community issues. CCF aims to reduce inequality and social problems by continuing to empower communities to help themselves. 

As the Head of Philanthropy, you will develop successful, long-term relationships with new donors and will continue to nurture and grow relations with current donors, creating sustainable income streams. Areas of focus will be corporate partners, High Net worth Individuals and legacies. There is a healthy pipeline in place providing a good base to start. The post holder will report to the CEO, and will join the senior leadership team. 

To be successful, your expertise will be in building, self-initiated high level relationships and growing fundraising income from a diverse range of donors. You will have a proven track record of securing income and will understand the importance of the donor journey through stewardship. You may not have worked for a Community Foundation before but you will be excited by the challenge and committed to CCF's mission and values.
