Phoenix Children’s Hospital has provided hope, healing, and the best healthcare for children since it was established in 1983, growing to become one of the leading pediatric healthcare systems in the country. With a medical staff of nearly 1,000 pediatric specialists, Phoenix Children’s provides inpatient, outpatient, trauma, and emergency care across more than 75 pediatric subspecialties, the most comprehensive pediatric care available in the state. The Hospital’s Centers of Excellence have grown in size and expertise to place them on par with some of the most prestigious of their kind in the United States.
Over the next five years, Phoenix Children’s will build on its achievements and accelerate its investments in the people, research, technologies, and programs that will solidify its position as a world-class hospital for decades to come. That means recruiting physician-scientists who will change the shape of medicine from right here in Phoenix; fostering discoveries that will improve the quality and length of children’s lives; establishing groundbreaking, destination programs that will attract young patients from around the world; and driving innovations that will give ill and injured children hope beyond their wildest dreams.
The Phoenix Children‘s Hospital Foundation (PCHF) serves as the fundraising partner to the Hospital and provides needed support for critical programs, capital projects, and a variety of services that are entirely supported by philanthropy. Today, Phoenix Children’s Hospital’s pursuit of excellence and culture of innovation are propelling it toward a remarkable future.
Developed as part of the ambitious plan to double philanthropy, the Director of Foundation Relations role will serve as member of the Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation grants team reporting to the Vice President, Individual Giving. With energy and enthusiasm, the Director is expected to strategically lead and manage relationships with foundation donors and partners, increasing value and impact for both Phoenix Children’s Hospital and its philanthropic partners. An ideal role for a passionate, fearless and driven individual, the incoming Director will identify local, regional, and national corporate and foundation prospects for the purposes of engendering broad engagement with Phoenix Children’s, and to plan and execute solicitation and stewardship strategies at the major and principal gift levels.
