Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT)
Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) is looking for an experienced fundraising and communications innovator to lead, plan and manage our funding strategy and team, to ensure that we have the resources, relations, and visibility we need to thrive and create change. This newly created position will be part of HOT’s Leadership and Senior Management teams and will lead a newly established team within HOT that is responsible for growing our sustainable - majority unrestricted - funding, generating new income streams and increasing our visibility through well thought out external communications. The position will shape how we position ourselves to the world; directing how we present HOT both online and offline, and thoughtfully developing and executing on our messaging and storytelling.
HOT is currently funded by a small but robust group of private philanthropists (through the TED Audacious Project), corporations, foundations, government and multilateral donors (e.g. World Bank) as well as a small pool of engaged individual donors. Currently, half of our $10M annual income is unrestricted and we are looking to further professionalize our fundraising and communications work to grow our sustainability. As a dynamic, rapidly growing, and evolving organization only 10 years old, this means having a high comfort level with change and charting a path for the role itself and the organization as we evolve. Rather than be guided by a long-established fundraising and communications strategy, we will look to the selected candidate to work collaboratively with HOT’s senior management team to influence thinking, develop a strategy, and test and experiment with new approaches. Practically, this will mean less “gala dinner” approaches and more time spent on digital giving, digital storytelling, pitching, and relationship building.
We believe that better representation in digital data can lead to greater inclusion in decisions - and therefore more equitable outcomes during disaster and crisis as well as improved access to basic services. We would like to articulate it better, showcasing our stories of impact, conveying to donors and philanthropists how open mapping can create life-changing impact across our five impact areas: disaster relief and climate change, gender equality, sustainable cities and communities, public health, displacement, and migration - and making it clear why our movement is the best positioned to do it.
We are looking for a passionate, creative, and committed fundraising and communications professional with an international outlook who is excited by the opportunity to do something unique and untested, excited by pulling up their sleeves to own the fundraising strategy, to take risks to strategically grow our income, and to pitch an organization with a brand that is not yet recognizable outside of its very global, but niche, circles. To do this, it will be vital to have a vision for how we tell the story of the open mapping movement through a human lens: centering the individuals and communities who comprise it.
You would be a great fit for the role if you have a deep understanding of the international development and humanitarian sectors, and if you have led fundraising and communications for a mid-sized, non-traditional non-profit with a global mission. Strong existing personal networks with major philanthropic donors in the US and globally are an asset.
In year 1, we expect you to put the right processes in place to cultivate our current base of donors and to grow our current sources of income (individuals, high worth private philanthropists, foundations, and corporations), to map current untapped opportunities and connections, to create donor care for our individual donors and to help craft HOT’s case for support and ensure our external communications are fit for purpose. You will ensure our current annual unrestricted income is renewed this year and increased at least by 25% by 2023 (corporate, individual, foundations).
Reporting to HOT’s Executive Director, you will manage a small team of professionals in charge of our corporate portfolio, institutional donors, and communications team. There is a possibility to recruit additional professionals onto the team for specific donor segments.
If you are passionate about digital inclusion and believe strongly that open mapping can help achieve sustainable development and humanitarian goals, this job might be for you. This is an exciting time to join HOT, as we embark on the second year of our five-year Audacious Project to map by 2025 an area home to up to 1 billion people in 94 countries while spearheading a global movement for data justice.
