Principal Gifts Officer
The Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with the Lucile
Packard Foundation for Children’s Health in the search for a
Principal Gifts Officer.
Reporting to the Director, Principal Gifts, the Principal Gifts Officer, a new position, will work directly with a portfolio of the Foundation’s most generous donors and high potential prospects.
The 98-member Foundation team, which raised more than $190 million last year, is growing in order to cultivate and steward a robust portfolio of approximately 500 donors and prospects who have the potential to give gifts of $10 million or more. The Foundation is currently in the quiet phase of a campaign, which will allow for the continued growth of Stanford Children’s Health as a leader in pediatric and obstetric care and research. This is a time when innovation in child and maternal health is flourishing, and the Principal Gifts team will drive the most transformative gifts to the Hospital and School of Medicine.
The Lucile Packard Foundation for Children's Health, a wholly independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, works to improve the health and well-being of children and expectant mothers by fundraising on behalf of Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford and the child and maternal health programs at Stanford University School of Medicine.
Opened in 1991, Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford is the heart and soul of Stanford Children’s Health. Nationally ranked and internationally recognized, the 361-bed hospital is devoted entirely to pediatrics and obstetrics. Its centers provide comprehensive services and deep expertise in key obstetric and pediatric areas: brain and behavior, cancer, heart, pregnancy and newborn, pulmonary, orthopedics and sports medicine, and transplant. Stanford University School of Medicine is a premier research-intensive medical school that improves health through leadership, collaborative discoveries, and innovation. The School of Medicine consistently ranks among the nation’s top 10 medical schools, integrating research, medical education, patient care, and community service.
The Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health believes that a workforce comprised of people from different backgrounds and experiences makes it better at what it does. The collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, innovation, self-expression, unique capabilities, and talent that the Foundation team brings to its work and the workplace represents a significant part of not only its culture, but the Foundation’s reputation as well. The Foundation encourages applications from candidates that reflect the diversity of the community it serves.
A bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience is required for this position as is five to seven years of progressively responsible fundraising experience. All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and résumé. Cover letters should be responsive to the mission of the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health to elevate the priority of children's health.
