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 is comprised of three main but complementary functional areas: Private fundraising, Communications and Advocacy. The main objective of the department is to enable this organization of more than 12,000 staff to have the resources needed to continue serving 18 million people worldwide in places affected by war and disaster, shape the humanitarian sector by influencing key policies and reforms and build and grow IRC’s reputation. The USA Philanthropy unit, part of the ER department, leads on the organization’s work with USA-based High-Net-Worth Individuals.

The Director, Principal Giving serves a critical role in helping to develop and implement strategies that are informed by ambitious revenue targets and devise, monitor, and analyze results of initiatives and metrics to guide future endeavors. S/he will be expected to understand the needs and performance of donors and prospects, communicate, and collaborate superbly with colleagues, business partners and supporters, think strategically, make recommendations, offer creative solutions and manage systems to continually grow and improve the IRC's donor relationships, and prospecting with ultra-high net worth individuals and families.
