Shooting Star Children’s Hospices are homes from home for the families they support, helping to make every moment count for children with life-limiting conditions and their families.
Each year they need to raise £8.8m to keep their vital services running, with just 8% of that income coming from central government funding. As such, they rely on the generosity of their supporters (including major donors), to ensure they can continue providing vital support to the children and families that need them.
Major donor income is not a new fundraising stream for the organisation but this is a new role, crafted specifically to focus on the development of this programme and increase HNWI support outside of their special events and celebrity patron networks.
You will be responsible for the strategic development of the philanthropy programme, managing and developing your own portfolio of HNWIs to drive cultivation and stewardship activity that achieves ambitious but achievable targets.
This is a specialist role, focused on developing networks and relationships with major donor supporters who have the capacity to give five- and six-figure gifts to the charity.
Reporting to the Director of Fundraising, you’ll work closely with key colleagues and stakeholders to further existing relationships and identify new philanthropic prospects, with a focus on HNWIs.
The postholder will be required to apply for a Disclosure & Barring Service check.
The fundraising team are predominantly based from their Hampton hospice but there will be a requirement to attend the hospice in Guildford on occasion.
