Development Officer
New York, NY (temporarily remote)

Do you pride yourself on providing philanthropic investors with everything they need to understand their social impact, inspiring them to do more? Are you a changemaker who wants to play a pivotal role in restoring vision for millions of people in low-income communities around the world?

VisionSpring is a pioneering social enterprise recognized by philanthropic leaders as one of the world’s high-impact social enterprises. In fact, we just crossed the billion-dollar impact mark, correcting the vision of 7.5 million people, and we are growing at a rate of ~20-25% per year. With a robust portfolio of leading national and international foundations, governments, and corporations as supporters, including the Skoll Foundation, Mulago Foundation, Jasmine Social Investments, USAID, an innovative partnership with Warby Parker, and a growing cadre of long-term, major donors, VisionSpring is poised for significant expansion.

VisionSpring seeks a development officer to join our development team and build strategic partnerships with a growing portfolio of dynamic, sophisticated funders. Reporting to the global director of development and working closely with the CEO and the founder, the development officer will play a primary facilitative role in VisionSpring's fundraising efforts with philanthropic investors, foundations, and corporate funders. The person in this role will work as part of an entrepreneurial team to raise the philanthropic capital needed to augment our earned revenue. Working remotely temporarily, but based at VisionSpring’s New York City office once it reopens, the development officer will work collaboratively with our teams across eight countries and in support of our work globally.
