We influence systems to deliver better social outcomes for people by learning about what works in communities, helping organisations be more effective, sharing our perspectives and advocating for change.
SVA’s Partnerships team is key to ensuring the future sustainability and growth of SVA by developing and managing our relationships with funders, including trusts and foundations, business and high net worth individuals/families.

Working collaboratively across all of SVA, the primary purpose of the position is to lead the development, implementation and operations of significant fundraising strategies and campaigns, as well as stewarding donors towards rewarding involvement.
You will be empowered to build the fundraising strategy, and implement it through leveraging relationships with existing and potential funding partners, and collaboration with SVA’s leadership and stakeholders. A highly successful fundraising background is required to achieve income growth, reach aspirational targets and to enable SVA’s purpose to contribute to an Australia where all people and communities thrive. Excellent communication skills and the ability to confidently present opportunities with detailed research, data, professional proposals and compelling stories are required, along with an understanding of the philanthropic landscape in Victoria.
