Contributions Officer


We’re looking for a Contributions Officer to join our Deployment Team, who manage the transfer of money in and money out of our funds, as well as overseeing investments in Donor Advised Funds. As a part of this seamless process, you’ll oversee the incoming funds from members, helping to simplify a potentially overwhelming process into an enjoyable and rewarding experience for our member community. You’ll report into our Deployment Director, managing a high-volume of often complex gifts, including private share donations, and facilitating strategic giving for HNW individuals.

In your first 6 months you’ll:

  • Take ownership of our busy contributions/giving funnels in the US, UK and Europe, and provide guidance on the potential advantages of giving different types of gifts, including private share donations.
  • Manage all contributions, prioritising your workload based on risk, client needs and complexity. You’ll be the safe pair of hands for both the team and our members to make sure nothing slips and contributions run seamlessly.
  • Become an authoritative voice when speaking to members and wealth advisors. You’ll manage relationships with international contributors to gather information and ensure compliance. This may involve calls with members in the US, UK or Europe (you’ll handle a high-volume of calls on incoming funds during giving season).
  • Take control of all contributions correspondence in our team inbox, liaise with our Administrator to log information and draft emails for various teams across the business (e.g. Growth, Community and Advisory teams).
  • Own our data - making sure everything is accurately recorded on the contributions side.
  • Liaise with the National Philanthropic Trust (who administer one of our Donor Advised Funds) on simple and more complex gifts such as those involving cryptocurrency, private shares etc.
  • Assist with supervision of our Administrator.
  • Knowledge of and experience working with the IRS Charitable Contribution Deductions rules and different types of complex gifts and assets.
  • The confidence to work autonomously, handling high-levels of complexity and communicating with high-profile external members.
  • Strong experience working with external clients. You’ll be meticulous in your approach to following-up on required actions and responding to external member/client queries, always striving for high levels of satisfaction.
  • Attention to detail - you’ll be responsible for making sure all contributions are correctly recorded.
  • A strong desire to develop and fill any knowledge gaps you may have.
