Wycliffe Bible Translators

Major Donor Fundraiser

Thank you for your interest in the position of Major Donor Fundraiser, working under the title of Key Supporter Liaison Officer. We are delighted that you are investigating this role and hope that the following information is sufficient to give you a good sense of what the role encompasses and whether you could see yourself serving in God’s mission with us.

An independent charity, Wycliffe Bible Translators UK & Ireland is part of an international family of organisations and a member of the Wycliffe Global Alliance. Together we long for all people to have access to God’s word, the Bible, in the language that they understand best. Of the 7,000 languages in use in the world today, the complete Bible exists in only 554, and at least 1.5 billion people do not have the full Bible available in their first language. While significant progress has been made over recent decades, we are aware of up to 180 million people, speaking at least 1,800 languages, who are still waiting for a Bible translation project to begin.

Wycliffe UK & Ireland has over 300 active personnel, many of them seconded to work overseas with partner organisations. Some of these are working in Bible translation, others in literacy, training, Scripture use, language development or in providing services that support translation and the long-term well-being of a given language community. Still others are involved in leadership and advocacy, or in supporting the activities of Wycliffe, both globally and at a local level.

As Key Supporter Liaison Officer, you would play a significant part in achieving this vision. This is an important role, cultivating and managing relationships with major donors in such a way that Wycliffe’s ministry is understood and opportunities to invest are presented appropriately.
