The Climate Group is seeking a highly motivated Fundraising Manager to be based in San Francisco, CA and focused primarily on fundraising for its Under2 Coalition work.
The Climate Group runs the secretariat for the Under2 Coalition. Created in 2015 by the Governments of California and Baden-Württemberg, this is the lead, global coalition of sub-national governments who have signed-up to driving ambitious climate action. It includes many of the world’s most renowned states and regions, climate leaders in their own right. Within only 2 years, it has grown to comprise over 150 states and regions, representing more than 1.09 billion people and more than a third of the global economy.
The Under2 Coalition is growing in both size and ambition. As the Secretariat, The Climate Group plays a key function in coordinating and building the work of the coalition and engaging members. We also lead work streams around transparency, policy innovation and energy transition pathways.
All this work needs funding and developing the networks and relationships that will enable this funding. While we have raised seed funding successfully and have warm leads for longer term funding we need to go further. Many of the key relationships that we need to build are with funders in California as well as leveraging the networks from our offices in London, New York, Beijing and Delhi.
We are looking for a senior fundraiser who can develop and deliver a fundraising strategy for the Under2 coalition, based in CA. This is a new role and offers a fantastic opportunity for someone who relishes an entrepreneurial, creative and independent approach.
