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 5.4 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 senior development officer and working closely with the CEO and the founder, the development officer will play the primary facilitative role in VisionSpring's fundraising efforts with philanthropic investors, institutional foundations, and family offices/foundations. They will work as part of an entrepreneurial team to raise the philanthropic capital needed to augment our earned revenue. Based in VisionSpring’s New York City office, the development officer will work collaboratively with our teams across eight countries and in support of our work globally.
