JOB SUMMARY

Under the direction of the Director of Giving Programs, the Digital Engagement Officer will identify, qualify, cultivate, solicit and steward individual prospects capable of making leadership annual gifts of $1000+ annually. This is an early career fundraising position focused on the strategic identification, qualification and cultivation of current donors and highly-rated non-donors with a goal of building and upgrading a new pipeline of prospects for the entire Health system including the UC Davis Medical Center and School of Medicine. As a generalist position, the role will focus on prospect qualification, cold calling skills and portfolio management, while working collaboratively with gift officers who are specialists staffing faculty, researchers and clinical leadership teams.

The position will solicit philanthropic support from grateful patients of UC Davis Health with a strategic emphasis on selected populations and clinical care programs with higher gratitude and high volume of care. This fundraiser must meet specific number goals in three key areas: upgrading current donors, generating gifts from new prospects, and appropriately stewarding leadership annual donors:

  • Face-to-face visits: 150 (adjusted based on % of frontline fundraising). *
  • Portfolio Management Goals for portfolio size, penetration and composition will be set in your Annual Business Plan.
  • Number of Proposals/Asks up to $50K: 50-75% of Face-to-Face Visits
  • Number of Proposals/Asks of Major Gifts $50K+ (at least 30% of proposals are comprehensive asks): will be based on portfolio and Annual Business Plan
  • Dollars Raised Targets: $500K - $1M annually

To identify the top annual giving prospects, this individual will utilize the UC Davis Prospect Management system, custom patient activity reports and the new grateful patient scoring system, to organize and segment a large portfolio of 1000+ potential new donor prospects who will then be visited either virtually or in person and either qualified face-to-face for continued cultivation/stewardship or disqualified as an annual giving prospect. They will also work closely with the Associate Director, Grateful Patient Programs to follow up with donors related to stewardship, multi-year pledges and to build a pipeline from the patient calling program.

Success as a fundraiser at UC Davis requires the incumbent to also be a collaborative team player who adheres to the university's Principles of Community and complies with UC Davis Development policies. This Development role is a part of the larger development organization and will report to an experienced and dedicated team manager who provides support, training and guidance.

With a commitment to employee development and talent retention, additional training, professional development, career and mentoring opportunities are offered as we elevate UC Davis to one of the nation's top development and alumni relations organizations.
