With over 30 years of leadership and support to the county, the Gloucestershire Community Foundation is growing and developing rapidly. Having agreed a new strategy for 2021-2024, our mission is to “increase our capacity through philanthropy, grant making and developing partnerships, to help strengthen the capabilities of our communities in order that they are able to thrive. The exciting new role of Philanthropy Manager is therefore key in developing and growing this department for the successful delivery of this pledge.
The Gloucestershire Community Foundation (GCF) performs 3 functions: it supports philanthropy in the county, be that from individuals, families, from local businesses or the public sector; it provides community leadership through a deep understanding of the needs and issues; and it performs a grantmaking function, ensuring that money reaches those who need it in the most effective way. Essentially, we are a business striving to deliver exceptional service to our donors, fundholders and the charities we serve, but the main difference being we have a social conscience in all we do
GCF has had a significant impact for good in the county, allocating consistently over £300K yearly across Gloucestershire and most recently delivering over £1.4M in the last year, a record year in history. We base our giving on genuine local insight, gleaned not only from our independent research, but crucially also from our deep personal knowledge of Gloucestershire.
The Philanthropy Manager will be joining us at a time of exciting change and will have an opportunity to contribute and shape the future of GCF. Thus, it is an outstanding career opportunity for the right person who will bring professionalism and efficiency to our organisation and at the same time make the role their own.
We are looking for someone to join our small friendly and collaborative team, who is passionate, fun, committed and engaging, to supporting the Foundation’s growth and overall success.
