The Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with DAP Health in the search for a Chief Development Officer.

Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer and President, the Chief Development Officer will provide strong, creative, energetic, and strategic leadership on all development initiatives, programs, and functions, both short- and long-term, with responsibility for advancing a culture of philanthropy and significantly increasing annual contributed revenue including enhanced engagement of major donor and planned gift prospects. The Chief Development Officer will work to build upon DAP Health’s history of generous philanthropic support and leverage the tremendous affinity for the organization, its trajectory in serving thousands more in the Coachella Valley, and the confirmed giving capacity of community members who could potentially join the donor base. The Chief Development Officer will fully leverage administrative, health care providers, and volunteer leadership in fundraising, and will strengthen and mobilize an active partnership between the Development Office and key DAP Health leaders, particularly the Chief Executive Officer and President, members of the Board of Directors, and prominent health care practitioners. The Chief Development Officer will serve as the chief campaign officer for current and future fundraising campaigns including the $30 million VISION FORWARD campaign which has reached 50% of its goal with $15 million in documented gift commitments left to conclusion.

Founded in 1984 by a group of community volunteers in the face of the AIDS crisis, today DAP Health is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) with the goal of improving the overall health of the entire community, especially the disenfranchised. DAP Health provides comprehensive, culturally competent, quality primary and preventative health care services including primary medical care, infectious disease care, dentistry, behavioral health and affordable housing all on one campus. 

The Coachella Valley is characterized by a significantly wide disparity in income levels and the majority of DAP Health’s clients are low-income, medically underserved community members. In DAP Health’s nearest service area, more than 50% of the population is living under 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. In addition to economic disadvantage, food, and housing insecurity, as well as health disparities such as diabetes, mental illness, cardiovascular disease, and substance abuse are prevalent. A growing aging population and limited employment opportunities add to the complexity of need. With more than 10,000 patients currently in DAP Health’s care, and half impacted by HIV/AIDS, the organization continues to see more than 100 new patients each month and knows that the need is even greater than what can currently be provided.

DAP Health ensures access to care by offering a sliding fee scale for income-qualified individuals who are uninsured. The organization’s range of services helps address urgent needs, as well as provide a foundation for patients to achieve positive health outcomes and fulfill the goals that they have for their lives. DAP Health further removes barriers by providing services which include primary medical care; HIV and Hepatitis specialty care; dental care; individual and group mental health and substance abuse services; prescriptions filled at the in-house pharmacy; assistance with food, utilities, and transportation for qualified clients; programs that support permanent and emergency housing needs; community-wide, free HIV and Hepatitis C testing, education, and early intervention services; and more. 

A bachelor's degree is preferred for this position. At least ten years of progressively responsible fundraising experience in leadership positions focused on major gift initiatives and capital campaigns is required. All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and résumé. Cover letters should be responsive to the mission of DAP Health as well as the responsibilities and qualifications presented in the prospectus.
