Strategic Partnership Director
Financial Beginnings USA (FBUSA) is a national nonprofit that teaches individuals how to play an active role in their financial well-being. Developing this knowledge increases life opportunities such as home ownership, higher education, and secure retirement, while contributing to the economic resiliency of individuals, families, and our shared communities.
The Financial Beginnings mission is to empower youth and adults to take control of their financial futures. FBUSA fulfills this mission through its affiliate model, extending programming to more communities via local, on-the-ground teams. These statewide affiliate teams, along with their volunteer networks, deliver FBUSA financial education programming that is continually tested, revised, and improved to ensure mission alignment and participant impact. Currently, two affiliates are well-established in Oregon and Washington; two new chapter offices opened in California and Nebraska last year. FBUSA maintains shared program and operation protocols that increase efficiency and effectiveness, ensuring each affiliate can dedicate the greatest number of resources to serving their local community.
Reporting to the Chief Advancement Officer (CAO), and working closely with the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Chief Operating Officer (COO), and Marketing Manager, the Strategic Partnership Director will manage FBUSA's fundraising efforts and oversee the coordination with affiliates on their fundraising requests. Historically, the majority of FBUSA's income has been derived from corporate sponsorships and foundation giving. Since expanding nationally in 2017, FBUSA's fundraising model has shifted to a larger percentage of earned income from the affiliate model. The more successful the affiliates are in fundraising, the more successful FBUSA is in expanding its mission nationally.
This is an excellent opportunity for someone who is looking to join at the beginning of our national expansion. The ideal candidate should be a detail-orientated, mission-driven development professional who is looking to deepen their expertise and grow with us.
