Lead the Moriah College Foundation as a proud advocate for Moriah College, a strong relationship manager and fundraiser. 

  • Contribute to the ongoing growth and success of The Moriah Foundation
  • Drive the Board’s strategy to support engagement and fundraising
  • Work with a committed team and Board

Established in 2011, The Moriah Foundation (TMF) was created to ensure the ongoing  sustainability of Moriah College and to  assist more children to access a Moriah education. Supported by the work of the Foundation, Moriah College plays a critical role in shaping the future of Sydney’s Jewish community. Moriah College is an independent, co-educational Modern Orthodox Zionist Jewish school, which prides itself on providing the highest standard of Jewish and general education. The College is committed to the total development of all its students – helping them to proudly realise their full potential as members of the Jewish community, and as Australians.

Building on its current success, TMF is now seeking a Director of Foundation who will be responsible for ensuring the Foundation’s mission and vision are realised for  current and future generations. The Director of Foundation is responsible for creating and implementing a strategy to drive income growth, nurture relationships and maintain a culture of philanthropy within the College and College community. The Director of Foundation will work very closely with the College to ensure the school community and alumni are connected and informed of the Foundation’s ongoing role and importance to the Jewish community.

In this role you will be an authentic advocate and ambassador for both Jewish education and for the success of Moriah College, engaging with donors to encourage and inspire giving. You will use your fundraising experience and exceptional networking capability to deliver a funding and friend-raising strategy focused on cultivating new and existing relationships with an emphasis on the families and friends of the school community, alumni and corporate supporters. This is a hands-on role requiring sound leadership experience, as well as a proven ability to engage and confidently build trusted rapport to create new, and deepen existing, relationships with a range of stakeholders including Jewish community networks, businesses and donors. You will also have sound financial management and project delivery skills, reporting skills, coupled with excellent marketing and communication skills underpinned by a high degree of professionalism and discretion. You will possess a keen eye for detail across all areas. You will demonstrate a solid understanding of philanthropic trends and principles, donor relations and a capacity for creativity and strategic thinking in your approach to building and growing funding initiatives.

A genuine understanding of and / or affinity with the Sydney Jewish community and experience within the realm of Jewish engagement and education is desirable.
