International Rescue Committee (IRC)
The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. At work today in over 40 countries and 28 U.S. cities, we restore safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to endure. The IRC leads the way from harm to home.
The External Relations (ER) department was formed in 2020 and is comprised of 3 areas: Private fundraising, Communications and Advocacy. The department is in the beginning stages of crafting a new, results-oriented strategy that will 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. Reporting into the VP Global Partnerships and Philanthropic Services, GPPS consists of functional specialists across a variety of high-value (HV) fundraising functions providing all elements of cultivation, support and stewardship to HV donors, partners, and supporters. This newly formed unit is made up of three pillars: Prospect Research, Program Services, and Partner Engagement and Corporate Affairs, all of which are critical to the advancement of our HV goals and vision. Today, HV income makes up more than two-thirds of IRC's private-sector revenue. The delivery of outstanding service and niche functions from GPPS specialists across all HV teams globally is crucial to enabling the success of our HV fundraisers.
This exciting opportunity is on the Prospect Research team! Prospect and donor research is the foundation of HV fundraising, providing the insight and recommendations to the fundraisers that allows them to make strategic, data driven and timely decisions, progressing prospects through the donor’s journey in line with organizational priorities. Our work supports IRC's sustainability by identifying new opportunities for funding, focusing our resources, and protecting its reputation through due diligence. We empower both our fundraisers and our leadership to make effective, donor-centric decision making.
As part of this team, you will provide senior staff, board directors, and ER staff with high-quality donor research and strategic input for board meetings, donor meetings, events and strategy planning. You will study and synthesize internal and external data and information sources to coordinate the HV teams’ understanding of how to deploy global partnership strategies, grounded in our organization's priorities, in the international arena. You will work closely with HV fundraisers to refine and focus pipeline management methodologies through prospect identification and data analysis, as well as market, sector, and event scans to support portfolio optimization. You will contribute reliable and timely qualitative and quantitative data and trend analysis to support the strategic and vital planning and overall efficiency of the ER operation.
