The National Scleroderma Foundation’s (NSF) mission is to advance medical research, promote disease awareness, and provide support and education to people with scleroderma, their families, and support networks. Scleroderma, or systemic sclerosis, is a chronic connective tissue disease generally classified as an autoimmune disease. It is NSF’s vision to be a relentless force in finding a cure and improving the lives of people affected by scleroderma.
The National Scleroderma Foundation seeks a Senior Director, Philanthropy (SDP) to lead the organization’s comprehensive philanthropy program in support of the Foundation’s mission to advance medical research, promote disease awareness, and provide support and education to people with scleroderma, their families, and support network.
Reporting directly to the Chief Executive Officer, the SDP will be a key member of the senior leadership team. Leading a team of five development professionals, the Senior Director will be responsible for providing a strategic vision for NSF’s fundraising program, with an emphasis on building a major gifts pipeline to drive consistent revenue growth for the organization.
The ideal candidate will be a proven frontline fundraising professional with experience across different development program areas. The incoming Senior Director will be a visible and communicative leader with demonstrated experience managing development staff and a background in a nonprofit, health-related environment.
