  • Support partnerships with medical boards, medical societies, online physician communities, and academic medical centers.
  • Develop processes to manage and scale relationships, stakeholders, and partners.
  • Build the fundraising and partnerships team over time.

Ideal candidates have:

  • A bachelor’s degree (preferably higher) from a top-tier academic institution.
  • 5+ years related work experience in nonprofit fundraising, grantmaking, and/or partnership development.
  • Ability and desire to engage with multiple stakeholders across a variety of communities, industries, and functional backgrounds.
  • A commitment to service and a strong desire to help the underserved.
  • Experience working and thriving in early-stage organizations and/or other resource-constrained environments.
  • Capacity to perform complex work with a high attention to detail.
  • Eagerness to join a high-performance institution and continually advance their knowledge and skills through self-reflection and feedback.

Note: Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
