We are an organisation born in the digital age. We believe in using technology to work in the most effective way possible, creating huge impact for the babies, children and families we help.

We are innovative, nimble and supportive. If you relish the idea of working in a fast-paced, collaborative and super-impactful team, we may be just what you're looking for!

About the role

Philanthropy Manager - Grants & Bequests

This newly designed role is an exciting opportunity to join the small, dynamic and highly successful Fundraising & Communications Team at St Kilda Mums Inc. We are an innovative, nimble, tech-savvy, fast-paced and much-loved organisation, and we look forward to providing the right candidate with an amazing opportunity to make their mark and change the lives of families in need.

The income generated by this role will make the single largest contribution to the Organisation's fundraising revenue. This is your opportunity to develop, manage and grow philanthropic and bequest income for St Kilda Mums Inc and ensure our income targets are achieved through the development of the:

  • Grants Program (including all grant writing, reporting and relationship management)

Working closely with the Partnerships Manager, and reporting into the Head of Fundraising & Communications, you will develop and execute a broad range of fundraising initiatives, which will raise the profile and fundraising revenue of St Kilda Mums Inc.

The Philanthropy Manager will be based at our office in Clayton, with an option to work from home if necessary, and will visit our Geelong Mums and Eureka Mums (Ballarat) branches from time to time.
