Job Description

Background/IRC Summary: 

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. Founded in 1933, the IRC offers lifesaving care and life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from war or disaster.

Its External Relations (ER) department was created in early 2020 and is comprised of three complementary functional areas: Private Fundraising, Communications and Advocacy – functions that work together to enhance IRC’s ability to ‘punch above its weight’ in private income, advocacy, and brand awareness. Supporting this endeavor, and an integral part of ER, is the Global Partnerships and Philanthropic Services (GPPS) Unit. GPPS consists of functional specialists across a variety of high-value fundraising functions providing all elements of cultivation, support and stewardship to high value donors, partners, and supporters.

The IRC has an exciting opportunity to join the Funding Proposition & Impact Reporting team within GPPS. This team develops funding and support propositions and impact reports to strengthen the high-value teams and to enhance IRC’s global fundraising and partnerships efforts. By becoming immersed in IRC’s programs, team members can translate that content into compelling donor-friendly language, and individual and blended proposals for financial and non-financial support for IRC’s work.
