Known worldwide for its excellent care, Boston Children’s Hospital is one of the largest pediatric medical centers in the United States. The hospital has been ranked #1 in more specialties than any other pediatric hospital in U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Children’s Hospital” lists for the past three years. In addition to caring for children through 25,000 inpatient admissions annually, the facility also houses the largest research enterprise based at any pediatric hospital, with more than 1,100 scientists.
The Boston Children’s Hospital Trust was founded in 1997 as a philanthropic resource for the hospital. The goal is to support efforts to advance patient care, research, medical training and community health. The Trust publicly launched last year its “Dream, Dare, Deliver” campaign – the largest campaign of any children’s hospital with a goal of $1.3 billion.
The Director of Stewardship at Boston Children’s Hospital Trust will be a seasoned and experienced development professional who will build a comprehensive stewardship communications program in service to all Boston Children’s donors. S/He will be responsible for a Trust-wide strategy that will move donors at every level toward a deeper involvement with the Hospital through communications that acknowledge and recognize their gifts and the impact of their philanthropy. Overseeing a single, centralized office within the Trust, the Director will serve as a senior member of the Trust and deploy a strategic stewardship plan that is consistent across all departments, with common goals, common messages, and a common voice. The Director will have at least ten years of experience and possess the ability to lead a team of development professionals who are highly skilled at all forms of communications—video, print, digital—and share the goal of creating innovative and meaningful ways to engage Boston Children’s donors.
