As a member of the United Way Worldwide team, the Club Connect Business Development Coordinator will have three primary roles:
1. The first is to approach investors about adopting local schools through the United Way Club Connect Adopt-a-School program. Working with the local United Way staff, the coordinator will participate in identifying potential investor targets through various prospective donor channels and in securing their commitment to schools in their community.
2. The coordinator will be responsible for outreach to prospective schools and for maintaining the relationship with the school once it is adopted including all aspects of implementing and maintaining the program.
3. After installation, the Coordinator will serve as a liaison between the school and the donor. The Coordinator will work to ensure that the investor’s expectations are exceeded and to develop and maintain a relationship that allows for a deeper and ongoing dialogue about the needs of the school and United Way’s early education work in the community. This relationship maintenance should lead to a long-term, growing investment in both the school and in United Way.
At all steps in this process, the coordinator will keep the appropriate local United Way staff person advised of any and all developments in the implementation of the initiative.
