Development Manager

Terra Firma National (“TFN”) promotes a compassionate and effective approach to meeting the most pressing medical, mental health, legal, and social needs of unaccompanied children and migrant families seeking humanitarian protections in the U.S. In 2013, Terra Firma was founded at a community health center in The Bronx to meet the complex healthcare and legal needs of unaccompanied migrant children in NYC. Since Terra Firma was founded, the number of unaccompanied children and migrant families in the U.S. has reached record levels. 


To meet this growing need, Terra Firma National was launched in 2021, with 4 strategic goals: (1) support the flagship Terra Firma program, (2) develop a network of Terra Firma programs across the country, (3) engage in advocacy on behalf of migrant children and families, and (4) pioneer critical research about the needs of migrant populations.



This position manages fundraising activities, including the cultivation of existing supporters, as well as identifying and soliciting new funding streams, such as individual donors, private and corporate foundations, and government grant opportunities. Additionally, the Development Manager will participate in planning an annual fundraising event in conjunction with key staff, Board members, and outside consultants. 


The Development Manager is responsible for working with the leadership team and Board to meet (or exceed) annual fundraising goals, develop an annual fundraising strategy, and ensure visibility of the organization. The Manager will provide high level support for and coordination of activities related to soliciting interest in the organization, writing grant proposals and reports, and managing funder relationships. The position reports directly to TFN’s Executive Director and works closely with TFN’s National Network Director, Program Associate, the Terra Firma Flagship Program Manager, and TFN’s Board of Directors. TFN is based out of New York City. At this time, the position is virtual. In-person appearance will be expected for fundraising events and for at least two Board Meetings during the year.
