Chief Development Officer

Headquarters: Burlington, MA
Research Grants: $18 Million to date
Number of Direct Reports: 3
Supervisor: President & CEO

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.

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.

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.
