Title: Gift Planning & Advisor Relations Manager
Classification: Full time exempt
Reports to: Director of Strategic Giving & Gift Planning
In its 23rd year, Essex County Community Foundation (ECCF) inspires philanthropy across the 34 cities and towns in Essex County, Massachusetts. We do this in three vital ways: 1) Managing and investing donor’s charitable assets; 2) Strengthening and supporting local nonprofits with the knowledge and financial resources needed to sustain lasting impact; 3) Bringing organizations together and to invest in “systems-change” work that addresses root-causes of social issues in our region.
With over $110 million in charitable assets, the Foundation advises fundholders on giving strategies to reach their philanthropic goals and maximize their impact. Our family of 250 (and growing) charitable funds delivers over $7 million to nearly 9,000 grantees annually.
ECCF has experienced significant growth in the last five years, proving there is real need and opportunity in the regional charitable giving sector.
ECCF is seeking an enthusiastic and results-oriented professional to join its asset development team. The Gift Planning & Advisor Relations Manager will provide charitable gift planning and support to Essex County donors and build deep relationships with professional advisors as key stakeholders and donor referral sources.
Candidates should have a passion for supporting the nonprofit sector and a genuine interest in facilitating conversations about charitable giving with donors and advisors. Experience in a fundraising role is favored and familiarity and/or experience in the financial services industry, while not required, is preferential.
