Nevertheless, philanthropy and partnerships remain essential to our success. Philanthropic capital enables us to make strategic investments in farmer and worker training and empowerment, consumer activation, expansion into new products, and innovation initiatives. FTUSA is now poised to go to scale, investing significant capital in our global expansion to provide greater impact on the lives of millions of families.

The ideal candidate will have a proven track record in capital campaigns, major gift cultivation, foundation fundraising and organizational leadership. We seek an entrepreneurial thinker with exceptional communications and interpersonal skills who is passionate about making a difference in the world.
