Call for Consultancy – Resource Mobilisation Strategy at African Women Development Fund

Deadline: Friday 15th September 2023

The African Women’s Development Fund has started implementing our new ten-year (2023-2033) strategic framework, Lemlem, to guide our efforts to advance gender equality and gender justice for girls, women, and gender-diverse people across Africa. At its core, Lemlem focuses on resourcing, nurturing, and strengthening African women, feminist groups, organisations and movements to achieve transformative change. A key strategic priority within Lemlem is to grow and manage AWDF’s financial resources to sustain our ambitions and progress towards financial security. AWDF aims to particularly focus on generating and attracting the type of funding that will give us the flexibility we need to better resource, amplify, and sustain our movement partners – especially long-term, flexible, and unrestricted funding.

To meet this ambition, AWDF is recruiting a consultant (or teams of consultants) to act as a Resource Mobilisation Accelerator – a Resource Mobilisation strategist and expert who can assist the team in ensuring our resource mobilisation strategy, donor relationship management, practices and competencies are aligned with our new strategic vision. The Resource Mobilisation Accelerator’s work will run over a period of six months, and include an accompaniment program for key staff at AWDF around donor relationship management.
