During its 108-year history, American Leprosy Missions (ALM) has ministered to four million people in 42 countries around the world. Thanks to the support of faithful donors and volunteers, they are able to cure and care for people suffering with leprosy, and are committed to bringing an end to this terrible disease. Their $13 million annual budget is primarily supported by 30,000 individual donors across the U.S., as well as by grants from international partner agencies. ALM is looking for a Vice President of Leadership Gifts to oversee this donor base, as well as major donor prospects.
The Vice President of Leadership Gifts will be responsible for actively building and managing a pipeline of major gift prospects, presenting proposals, and closing on proposals to raise major gifts. In addition he/she will provide thought leadership, coaching and mentoring to others involved in the major gift process, including the CEO, volunteers and colleagues in the development operation. This position will be based out of Greenville, South Carolina, with the possibility for an experienced major gifts professional to work virtually, and will report directly to the Chief Development Officer. The ideal candidate for this position should, at minimum, hold a bachelor’s degree, have significant evidence of experience in major donor fundraising, and possess a strong knowledge base of prospect research, donor screening and major donor models.
