Duarte, California

A world leader in the treatment and research of cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening illnesses, City of Hope’s scientists partner with doctors to turn laboratory breakthroughs into remedies that save lives. The organization is consistently named one of “America’s Best Hospitals” by U.S. News & World Report and has received the prestigious four-star rating from Charity Navigator. From cutting-edge research to exquisite and compassionate clinical care to the advancement of biomedical education and training, the City of Hope team is committed to treating the whole person, not just the disease.

Philanthropy is in the City of Hope DNA. Since its founding in 1913, donors from across the country have supported and influenced the City of Hope vision to give people dignity and help them live longer, better lives. Today, its Office of Philanthropy is building a national reputation as a model of excellence among elite fundraising programs.

Success will be achieved by building exceptional, long-term donor partnerships and demonstrating that all levels of philanthropic support are leveraged to realize maximum impact for City of Hope’s mission. Holding to the highest standards of professional performance and conduct, our committed staff will function as a highly collaborative, efficient and creative team.
