Philanthropy Dream Team (aka Major Gift Fund Raising Team)
Partnership Development Representative –
MAJOR GIFT FUNDRAISER
Everybody wants to make a difference. To leave the world a better place than they found it. You do. And so do people with lots of money.
In fact, having lots of money is a heavy burden to bear. People are built to give and when they don’t exercise that sharing impulse, that responsibility, that calling, they aren’t as healthy and they aren’t as happy.
Our cbm Philanthropy Dream Team gives people with high net worth the opportunity to discover their world-changing aspirations. We connect these men and women to giving opportunities that benefit some of the poorest and most overlooked people in the world – children and families struggling to survive poverty with the added challenge of not being able to see, or walk or hear.
Then we use their investment to make lasting, transformational change in lives and in communities. And believe it or not, these donors thank us for it.
We do it because we believe God loves everyone. And because we believe a whole and healthy world means no one should be left out.
Are you looking for a challenging, exciting career that changes lives here and in poorer countries? Join our Dream Team.
