Development Director for Neuroscience #7733
The Indiana University School of Medicine is seeking an experienced fundraiser with a record of raising major gifts of $50,000 to $1 million or more to lead the neuroscience fundraising program in the Office of Gift Development. This is a high profile position, and the successful candidate will interact with senior leadership at the School of Medicine and partner health care providers to develop and execute a comprehensive fundraising strategy. The development director will secure major gifts to support research, education and patient care missions in the neurosciences.
The development director must be highly collaborative and a proven leader. He or she will raise funds for neuroscience departments at the School of Medicine, which include Neurological Surgery, Neurology, Psychiatry, Neuroradiology and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. In addition, the individual works closely with neuroscience leaders at partner institutions.
Neuroscience has been identified as a high priority by the School of Medicine and our clinical partners. Indiana University is now building a neuroscience research center for which the development director will seek significant philanthropic support.
The expectation is that the development director will grow the neuroscience fundraising program by identifying, cultivating and soliciting individuals, corporations and foundations for major gifts. The director will also oversee donor-acquisition activities, including annual appeals, memorial gift campaigns and donor-based events and will provide for continuing stewardship of prospective and existing donors.
Required: Bachelor's degree from an accredited institution, plus 6 to 8 years of experience in development, preferably in health care or higher education.
Must provide a cover letter and resume to receive additional consideration.
