About the role
The Melbourne Anglican Foundation began in 1987, inspired by the vision of Archbishop David Penman. The Foundation seeks to raise funds to facilitate the mission and ministry of the Anglican Church in the Diocese of Melbourne, to enable the Church to think big and dream large about its future, and to maintain a Christian presence in the wider community. The Foundation fosters mission and ministry across the Anglican Diocese of Melbourne, and in the general community, by raising funds to support those who are sick or doing it tough, young people, new migrants and refugees, and the promotion of cultural activities.
The Foundation is looking for an inspirational Chief Executive Officer to lead the work of the Foundation and be its chief fundraiser. Reporting to the Chair and Board, the CEO will lead and develop a small team to focus on the mission of the Foundation and grow fundraising revenue through a variety of channels including major gifts, individual giving, bequests, grants, and online giving. You will be a strong relational leader and act as a trusted adviser to employees, the Diocese, parishes, schools and other welfare and development bodies by designing and delivering solutions to address business, commercial, and people related matters. This position will be responsible for providing strategic and operational direction and oversee all aspects of governance, finance, fundraising, information technology, risk mitigation, administration and team management.
You will be a values-driven, motivated and committed leader with a strong ability to build trusting and inclusive relationships, and achieve positive results to ensure continuing success, relevance and sustainability. This pivotal and hands-on fundraising role demands an authentic, collaborative, and resilient leader with a growth mindset, strong commercial acumen, excellent communication skills, and proven experience and success in personally asking for substantial gifts. Tertiary qualifications in Business, Marketing or Commerce and CFRE (Certified Fund Raising Executive) are desired, along with strong alignment of values with the Melbourne Anglican Foundation.
