Bethany Christian Services strengthens and equips families to be the answer for vulnerable children both in local communities and around the globe. We do this primarily through foster care, refugee services, and adoption. Our foster care and refugee service programs are continuing to expand at a rapid pace as we focus on unaccompanied refugee minors in urban areas around the globe. Thousands of children are in need of the support and safety that comes from being part of a family. Bethany is on the front line of providing solutions.
As the Senior Vice President of Donor Development and Engagement, you will serve as a key leadership team member and an active participant in making strategic decisions affecting Bethany Christian Services. This individual will work in partnership with the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and oversee all fundraising and development activities. The successful candidate will help forge new relationships to build Bethany Christian Services visibility, impact, and financial resources.
The SVP of Donor Development and Engagement will design and implement a comprehensive plan for developing key external alliances by cultivating individual and philanthropic support. It is expected that the amount raised by Bethany Christian Services will increase significantly in future years as the SVP of Donor Development and Engagement systematically and effectively strengthens the organization's overall fundraising capacity. In 2018 Bethany raised over 18M in funds.
Today, 150 million kids don't have a permanent home. That's unacceptable. At Bethany, we witness what happens when people choose love. Not theoretical, unblemished love, but the real, messy, imperfect kind.
Love that empowers vulnerable kids and families everywhere. The children hurting at home, and the ones unprotected at a border. The orphans and vulnerable children who feel alone, and the refugees living in a world of uncertainty. Everyone deserves to be loved. Together, we can change the world through family.
