The Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with Barrow Neurological Foundation in the search for a Senior Director of Philanthropy.

Reporting to the Barrow Neurological Foundation President, the Senior Director of Philanthropy will provide the vision, strategy, and leadership needed to secure high value major gifts in support of the Ivy Brain Tumor Center at Barrow Neurological Institute. The Senior Director of Philanthropy will secure four to six gifts at the $1 million and above level to generate $6 million in revenue annually that will be critical to the sustainability and success of the Ivy Brain Tumor Center, and central in its ability to cure brain cancer within the decade.

The Ivy Brain Tumor Center is home to the largest collection of Phase 0 trials for brain tumors in the world. Its multidisciplinary team of brain tumor specialists and scientists are accelerating drug discovery and precision medicine in neuro-oncology to identify the most promising first-in-class therapies for brain tumor patients. Established by an investment from the Ben & Catherine Ivy Foundation in partnership with the Barrow Neurological Foundation totaling $101 million, this investment represents the largest single research grant in the history of brain tumor research, worldwide. Ivy Brain Tumor Center's research program is singularly focused on discovering new therapies for brain tumor patients through a broad portfolio of pharmacodynamic- and pharmacokinetic-driven clinical trials, combining industry-partnered drug development with the nation’s largest operative brain tumor volume.

The Ivy Brain Tumor Center’s central strategy is to introduce patients to novel treatment paradigms, identify combined-agent strategies that sidestep brain tumor resistance mechanisms, and validate the utility of promising new regimens using randomized controlled clinical trials. Taken together, these innovative efforts in clinical trial design, expansive roster of new experimental agents, and access to the nation’s largest brain tumor patient population positions the Ivy Brain Tumor Center to redefine drug development for patients with brain tumors.

Barrow Neurological Foundation is an international leader in the treatment, research, and education of brain and spinal diseases, conditions, and injuries. Barrow consistently ranks as a top center for neurology and neurosurgery in the U.S. News & World Report rankings of best hospitals. It also is the only hospital in the nation which is presently triple certified by the Joint Commission in Traumatic Brain Injury, Spinal Cord Injury, and Stroke.

Dignity Health is the fifth largest health system in the United States and is owned by CommonSpirit which has over 700 care centers spanning 21 states. Barrow Neurological Foundation’s mission is simple: to be the catalyst of its donors’ passion for transformation by providing the resources for Barrow Neurological Institute to achieve its mission of saving human lives through innovative treatment, groundbreaking curative research, and educating the next generation of the world’s leading neuro clinicians. It provides philanthropic support of Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center, located in the heart of Phoenix, Arizona.
