Chief Development Officer

Endometriosis Foundation
New York, New York

The Endometriosis Foundation of America (EndoFound) was established in 2009 to confront the challenges posed by endometriosis, a condition affecting approximately 200 million women globally and one in 10 women in the United States. EndoFound is dedicated to raising public awareness about the disease, advocating for increased resources and support for its treatment, providing expert surgical training, and funding crucial endometriosis research.

The Foundation engages in comprehensive campaigns to educate both the medical community and the general public, emphasizing the importance of early diagnosis and effective intervention while also educating future medical professionals and their patients. Through programs like the ENPOWR Project, which targets adolescents in grades 9 through 12, and research grants supporting innovative studies, EndoFound is committed to empowering individuals, advancing medical understanding, and ultimately finding a cure for endometriosis.

The Opportunity

EndoFound is seeking a Chief Development Officer (CDO) to lead its strategic vision and operational execution. Reporting directly to the Board of Directors, the CDO will spearhead efforts to expand the Foundation’s reach by boosting revenue through transformational gifts, advocating for women’s health issues, and fostering a positive and professional organizational reputation. The CDO will serve as a primary spokesperson for EndoFound with donors, driving its mission forward on local, national, and international levels, and ensuring that the Foundation achieves its development goals outlined to further enhance understanding, treatment, and support for those affected by endometriosis.

The CDO will be responsible for developing a major gift program and personally managing top donors and prospects, bringing experience closing 6- and 7-figure gifts. Responsibilities also include partnering with the Board to develop fundraising strategies, overseeing grant funding, and managing operations. The ideal candidate will possess a minimum of 10 years of leadership experience in the nonprofit sector, particularly within healthcare settings, along with a demonstrated track record in community engagement, fundraising, and strategic planning.

This is an exciting and impactful opportunity for a community-focused leader who is passionate about women’s health and strategic leadership to drive positive change in healthcare on both a local and global scale.
