Global FoodBanking Network
Washington, DC
Director

Food banking works: it is a proven solution for nourishing individuals and communities.

The Global FoodBanking Network (GFN) is an international development organization dedicated to advancing this solution by creating a global network of food banks that provides immediate relief to people facing hunger.

GFN helps create food banks in communities where they are needed and supports food banks where they already exist. GFN has grown steadily and immensely: in 2018, it increased the number of food-insecure and hungry people served by 670,000, expanded staff by 33%, and doubled revenue to $4.7M.

Under the leadership of President & CEO Lisa Moon, GFN is launching a new strategic plan in 2019 to continue this expansion. To achieve its strategic goals, it has dedicated itself to expanding and diversifying its fundraising program. GFN recently hired its first Vice President of Development and is now hiring an Associate Director of Corporate and Foundation Partnerships.

Reporting to the Director of Corporate and Foundation Partnerships, the Associate Director will be charged with identifying and forging revenue-generating relationships with corporate partners and stewarding a portfolio of corporate relationships to support GFN’s fundraising goal. It is expected that the Associate Director will generate at least $1.5M in new support in year one and grow the portfolio to at least $4M in new support by year three.

Minimum qualifications include:

  • At least 8-10 years fundraising experience and a proven track record, with a focus on corporate donor cultivation and acquisition.
  • Interest in building an organization with a critical mission and a genuine desire to empower organizations serving the hungry in communities around the world.
  • Bachelor’s degree.
