In 2021, Malala Fund launched its five-year strategic plan that includes ambitious goals and significant organizational growth and expansion. To support and sustain the activities outlined in the strategic plan, Malala Fund will require new partnerships and sources of funding in new markets. Malala Fund is already a registered charity in Nigeria with an office and in-country programmatic staff. However, we do not have an established in-country fundraising team or strategy. Given our growing team and expanded programmatic footprint, we are well positioned to grow our Nigeria donor base by establishing an intentional strategic fundraising operation. Malala Fund seeks to fundraise only from individuals, foundations, and corporations (we do not accept government funds). The consultant will support Malala Fund’s fundraising team in their evaluation of the fundraising landscape in Nigeria and in designing a plan to develop a strategic fundraising presence.
