Jewish United Fund (JUF)
Who We Are:
Raising over $88 million annually, JUF amplifies the collective strength of the Jewish community to make the world a better place. JUF provides critical resources that bring food, refuge, health care, education and emergency assistance to 500,000 Chicagoans of all faiths and 2 million Jews in Israel and around the world, funding a network of nearly 70 agencies and programs.
The JUF Professionals Network is the largest, most diverse network of Jewish professionals, entrepreneurs and business owners in Chicago, providing access to high-level business leaders through relevant professional programming and networking opportunities.
Under the supervision of the Director of the JUF Professionals Network, the Assistant Director is responsible for the administration, management and strategic planning for one or more “Networks” organized according to profession or trade sector. This entails one-on-one donor conversations, working closely with the Network’s volunteer leadership on fundraising initiatives, events, leadership development experiences and cross-networking programs.
The Assistant Director will also serve as a Donor Officer for JUF, and in such role is responsible for developing and maintaining a portfolio of donors within their assigned network(s), including the cultivation, solicitation and stewardship of prospects and donors to maximize charitable and leadership involvement.
