  • Chief Development Officer

    LuMind RDS Foundation, Greater Boston Area

    We’re seeking an entrepreneur and seasoned fundraising professional to lead the planning and implementation of our efforts to generate sustainable sources of philanthropic dollars from individuals, corporations and institutional funders.

    LuMind RDS is a health-focused non-profit foundation that strives to enable independence and enrich community engagement for all individuals with Down syndrome. We work at the intersection of community and science to advance three key components of our mission:

    Empowering families to learn, share, and connect
    Catalyzing a clinical network that delivers transformational results
    Identifying and accelerating high impact research

    Science holds great promise for enhancing the lives of people with Down syndrome. Yet, few families are informed about the clinical trials that hold promise for improving their independence and health, and even for extending lifespan through preventing the early onset of Alzheimer’s in adults with Down syndrome. Through deep partnerships with researchers, families, industry and community agencies, we are uniquely suited to both inform families and mobilize financial and community support for the opportunities ahead.

    LuMind RDS Foundation has already awarded more than $18 Million in grants to academic institutions and biopharmaceutical companies focused on Down syndrome. Concurrent funding of more than $50M from the biopharmaceutical industry, the National Institute of Health, and other organizations has amplified the impact of our grants and has already led to 15 clinical trials.

    To learn more about LuMind RDS Foundation, please visit www.lumindrds.org for information about our current projects and impact.

    The position

    As Chief Development Officer (CDO), you’ll be charged with successfully planning and implementing our overall fundraising strategy and pathways to generating the resources needed to operate our existing programs and those planned for the future. While we have been successful raising money to date, much of this money has been from a select group of individuals, foundations and partners. Together, we’ll engage a greater number of supporters across the spectrum of philanthropic giving — from individuals to corporations to foundations. Your goal will be to help us to both identify and actualize these funding sources in ways that builds sustainability and helps us to reach our ambitious goals now and into the future.

    Reporting to the President and CEO, you’ll build on your consistent track record of success by introducing standard methodologies and systems that can accelerate our strong foundation for fundraising from high net worth individuals and family foundations. You’ll have the opportunity to build strategies to engage corporate partners and to integrate new platforms for reaching grassroots funders committed to our approaches to communication, education and advancing research. You’ll also work to bolster our education programs and family resources by using technology both to expand our reach and better link families together in learning and discussion.

    While your main focus will be on the generation of resources to operate and grow the organization, you will also serve as a member of our Management Team and participate in the leadership of the organization as a whole. Together, we will work together to advance our strategic plan in service of families and individuals with Down syndrome and our wider mission of identifying and catalyzing high impact research.

    Major functions & responsibilities

    As the Chief Development Officer you will be responsible for the following threads of work:

    Resource Generation: Cultivate and steward critical relationships to reach organizational scale and sustainability goals. Execute ambitious but achievable annual and long-term plans for revenue generation and partnership creation.

    Strategy Development: Lead strategy development for revenue generation and the identification of major partners to support growth and program quality. Collaborate with President & CEO and Board to refine the organization’s economic model, and sustainability strategies.

    Operations and Capacity Building: Enhance and maintain the systems and infrastructure, including team management, for all fundraising functions, including major giving, planned giving, grant acquisition, donor recognition, and stewardship.

    Stewardship of Partnerships: Strategize with Management Team on approaches to building important and sustained cross sector partnerships that include community agencies and national corporations that are both revenue generating and influence and enable LuMind’s work with families and individuals with Down syndrome directly and indirectly.

    Qualifications & experience

    There are innumerable ways to learn, grow and excel professionally. We respect this when we review applications and take a broad look at the experience of each applicant. We want to get to know you and the unique strengths you will bring to the work.

    Minimum of 15 years of development and management experience gained in high-growth organizations
    Ability to deliver on ambitious goals and benchmarks
