At Yalari, we believe education is the key to generational change and a brighter future, not only for Indigenous Australians but for all Australians and our nation as a whole.
Yalari (meaning “child” in Birri Gubba) is a national not-for-profit organisation offering high quality secondary education scholarships at leading boarding schools for Indigenous children from regional, rural and remote communities. Since 2005, Yalari has provided scholarships to hundreds of children from 189 communities, along with a comprehensive student support and development program, and a post-school pathways program to ensure students have the best opportunity for success. In 2020, there are 210 students on scholarships in 20 partner schools around Australia and a growing alumni of over 350 future leaders.
We are seeking an experienced Individual Giving Manager to engage and excite our supporters and the community to invest in the education and empowerment of Indigenous children. As a key member of the Philanthropy and Fundraising Team, you will plan and deliver acquisition, renewal and regular giving campaigns and appeals designed to increase the number of active supporters of Yalari, generate revenue to fund our programs and identify high-value prospects for sponsorships, major gifts and gifts in wills.
With 45 new students embarking on their Yalari scholarships in 2021, there is no better time to start.
To succeed in this role, you’ll be a strategic thinker with hands-on experience and a track record of success in a similar role. You’ll be an exceptional communicator and project manager with a love of donors and a love of data. And you’ll be a collaborative team player and positive influence on team culture with a passion for achieving equality through education for Indigenous children.
