Nobody deserves to live with an incurable cancer.
The Follicular Lymphoma Foundation (FLF) plans to change that. We are the first charity dedicated to finding a cure for follicular lymphoma - and fast.
FL is currently an incurable blood cancer. It affects thousands of people but the chances are, unless you have or know someone with it, you have never heard of it.
The Foundation has raised £4.5m pounds since it was founded by Nicola Mendelsohn, VP of Global Business Group of Facebook, in 2019 following her diagnosis with follicular lymphoma. Since then, it has established itself as an ambitious player in accelerating a cure for FL in the global eco-system.
The UK Director of Fundraising will will be a key player within our small team, developing and executing our fundraising strategy, taking full responsibility for cultivating and nurturing relationships with existing major donors and identifying and developing relationships with potential new donors. You will focus on the current supporters and their donor journey and help to secure bigger gifts from current donors as well as building new relationships. You will also foster and build connections with charitable trusts.
You will have proven experience and a strong track record of personally securing major donors, networking and face to face fundraising for high level funds. You will have exceptionally strong and persuasive written and verbal communications skills. You will have an understanding and knowledge of the UK HNW community.
You will support our Chief Philanthropy Officer, marketing and fundraising team in their major donor relationships, and also have the opportunity to be involved in our other funding streams, including legacy and our annual and fundraising campaigns.
You may be required to help recruit new committee members, lay supporters, and trustees where necessary.
