The Program on International Financial Systems (PIFS) is looking to hire its first full-time fundraiser to work in partnership with the Executive Director and President to maximize private support for PIFS.

 PIFS’ head of fundraising should have experience successfully leading fundraising efforts at a major University, preferably Harvard, and soliciting donations as well as managing relationships with donors from the financial sector. PIFS’ head of fundraising should preferably have experience working directly with high-net worth individuals and relationships with foundations and corporations. PIFS’ head of fundraising should have at least 10 years of fundraising experience.

 PIFS’ head of fundraising would lead all of PIFS’ fundraising activities, including renewals and growth of annual sponsorships of PIFS’ events, training and research and manage other fundraising duties as needed. Existing PIFS’ sponsors generally include large international financial institutions as well as high net worthindividuals from the financial sector.

 PIFS’ sponsors typically support specific events, training and research activities. PIFS’ events include three annual international symposia each held for over 20 years—US-China, US-Europe and US-Japan. Harvard Law School is the non-financial sponsor of PIFS’ events. PIFS’ training activities include week- long programs delivered at Harvard Law School for government officials and regulators, as well as virtual training programs. PIFS’ research is project-based and focused on policy issues impacting the global financial system, such as crypto marketregulation.

 PIFS’ head of fundraising would draft and deliver presentations/solicitations virtually and in-person. PIFS’ head of fundraising would design an operational structure to report fundraising progress to PIFS’ Executive Director, President and CFO. PIFS Executive Director and President would provide strategic guidance on fundraising efforts and also on occasion meet with existing and prospective large donors to PIFS.

 PIFS is also launching a new fundraising effort for general donations from high-net-worth-individuals that would not be for specific events or programs. Instead, this newfundraising effort is intended to grow PIFS’ regulatory training and research efforts overall. PIFS’ head of fundraising would help lead this effort.

 The role would be hybrid whereby PIFS’ head of fundraising would have to be in-person at PIFS’ offices in Cambridge, MA for 2-3 days a week. The approximate base salary would be $150,000 with a performance-based bonus.
