The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves (Alliance) is at the forefront of efforts to address the negative impacts of cooking with heavily-polluting stoves and fuels, which is a leading cause of household air pollution and a barrier to good health, a healthy environment, and multiple global development goals. The Alliance works with public, private, and non-profit partners to accelerate production, deployment, and use of clean cookstoves and fuels in developing countries. The Alliance has galvanized nearly 2,000 public and private sector organizations globally to help address this critical challenge, leveraging a market-based, systems approach to achieve universal access to clean cooking solutions by 2030.
The Director of Development is responsible for increasing and retaining support from foundations, the private sector, and individual donors, as well as continued engagement with governments and bilateral funds, for both general operating and project-specific goals. The Director manages the pipeline of foundation and corporate support across the Alliance, as well as a personal portfolio of institutional and individual donors, partners, and prospects. S/he works closely with Alliance leadership to identify and develop partnerships, grants, and donations to bring funding, marketing, in-kind contributions, and other assets to the organization. The Director will help facilitate relationships that bring together partners and donors in support of the Alliance’s priority issues, in a manner that also contributes to the Alliance’s self-sufficiency. The Director will be responsible for strategic development, operational management, partnership building, and resource mobilization relationships.
The Director of Development reports to the Senior Director of Global Partnerships and Communications, working closely with Alliance colleagues, and in collaboration with the UN Foundation’s Integrated Development team.
