Type: Full time, salaried

About The Library Project

The Library Project is an international non-profit that donates local language children's libraries to underfunded, rural elementary and secondary schools in Asia. We also conduct Literacy Programs and Teacher Trainings.

Fundraising Manager Overview

The Library Project is looking for an enthusiastic go-getter to fill our position of Fundraising Manager. The Fundraising Manager’s main responsibility will be to build new corporate partnerships both inside and outside of Vietnam. These partnerships will provide schools with high-quality children's libraries and give companies a meaningful way to give back to the community. The Fundraising Manager will be responsible for negotiating terms and creating proposals with these companies. The Fundraising Manager will need to have a "big picture" mindset in order to create partnerships that are financially necessary for the organization and equally beneficial for our partner companies and beneficiary schools. The Fundraising Manager will complete donor reports and occasionally help with external communication via blogs and social media. This position is very externally facing and will often act as the “face” of the organization in Vietnam.

We are currently a small organization, so we’re looking for a candidate who is highly motivated, energetic and a self-starter. This is a great opportunity to use your strong communication and networking skills to help improve education in Vietnam.
