Organizational Setting and Work Relationships
The Private Sector Partnerships Service (PSP) sits within UNHCR's Division of External Relations (DER) and is responsible for mobilizing resources for refugees from the private sector. UNHCR has developed a Private Sector Fundraising Strategy 2018-2025 which has the ambition of growing PSP into a service capable of generating $1 Billion annually and identifies priority fundraising markets and regions.

Individual Giving (IG) is targeted at the general public to secure the support of individuals through regular, unrestricted donations, cash appeals and legacies. The aim is to generate both monthly and one-time donations from individuals using various channels and methods including direct mail, face-to-face fundraising, telemarketing, digital fundraising, DRTV and emergency fundraising, with focus on strong donor loyalty and lifetime value.

The purpose is to maximize the donor base from the individual giving (IG) for UNHCR, those with the ability to provide donations of between $1 to $10.000 per year to UNHCR.

South Africa is considered one of the more mature and developed fundraising markets on the continent. This is due to the historical giving nature of South Africans as evident by the presence of other INGO¿s such as UNICEF, Save the Children, and Greenpeace who are running successful individual giving fundraising programs in the country in the form of F2F, telemarketing, digital acquisition among others. This speaks to the great potential of individual giving in South Africa as a fundraising program. The program is currently at the testing phase. PSP Africa is looking to hire an individual with IG fundraising experience in South Africa to support the IG strategy development.
