Description

At CARE, we seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live with dignity and security.

This has been our vision since 1945, when we were founded to send lifesaving CARE Packages® to survivors of World War II. Today, CARE is a global leader in the movement to eradicate poverty. In 2015, CARE worked in 95 countries and reached 65 million people with an incredible range of life-saving programs. We also put women and girls at the center of our work because we know that we cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities. We seek dynamic, innovative thinkers to further our mission. If you share our core beliefs: poverty is an injustice; poverty is solvable; and together, we have the power to end it, join us.

CARE is seeking a talented Director of Development (DOD) - Corporate Sponsorships who will lead CARE's efforts to leverage its brand with companies. The DOD will design and manage event sponsorship, cause-marketing, and co-branding engagements to raise revenue, build awareness of CARE, and integrate a branding element to new and existing core business partnerships.

The Director of Development – Corporate Sponsorship is a new role for CARE, which will entail significant new business development, i.e., prospecting for new companies to engage. In the past year, CARE has launched several new events for which we seek sponsors that can serve as integrated platforms for corporate employee and consumer engagement. The DOD will also serve as the subject matter expert for a team that has a strong record of engaging companies in strategic, long-term, core business engagements. The DOD will work closely with members of the existing corporate team; brand, communications and marketing teams, and events team.

Responsibilities:

  • Secure new companies as sponsors for CARE's events.

  • Identify companies whose brand positioning aligns with CARE's brand and marketing initiatives.

  • Serve as a subject matter expert on event sponsorship for the totality of the corporate team.

  • Serve as the subject matter expert for team members whose partners wish to add a cause-marketing element to existing partnerships.

Qualifications:

  • Undergraduate degree

  • Five (5) + years building a track record of successful event fund-raising/sponsorship from companies.
