JDRF is the world’s largest private funder of type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. JDRF’s mission is to improve lives today and tomorrow by accelerating life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent, and treat T1D and its complications. Founded more than 50 years ago by parents seeking to help their children impacted by the disease, JDRF has invested more than $2 billion in research to find cures for T1D, while improving lives today through advocacy and community engagement.
The Chief Development Officer (CDO) will be a key member of JDRF’s senior management and leadership team. Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, the CDO will play a pivotal role in advancing the organization’s ability to support transformational advancements in T1D research and care.
The CDO will be an outstanding communicator, fundraiser, and team leader. They must be able to work collaboratively with highly engaged Board member volunteers, develop relationships with donors across all levels, and lead a team of development and field professionals who are focused on event fundraising, leadership giving, corporate partnerships, and field development. JDRF has a June year-end and has set a fiscal 2022 revenue goal of $170 million in core fundraising, which is currently forecast to be exceeded.
If you have a commitment to significantly improving the health and lives of children and adults with Type 1 diabetes and are a strategic and innovative fundraising leader, this may be the right opportunity for you.
