The Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with the Hope for Henry Foundation in the search for a Chief Development Officer.

Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer and Founder, the Chief Development Officer will join a world-class team that is a driving force for change in how hospitals and other healthcare providers care for children. The Chief Development Officer will guide the vision and strategy for Hope for Henry’s continued growth from 30 to over 100 hospitals and foster a culture of philanthropy within the organization that supports this critical work. The Chief Development Officer will bring an energetic passion for Hope for Henry’s mission and a track record of fundraising success to their role. The Chief Development Officer will provide strategic input on key organizational decisions, and partner with leaders from across the organization to ensure a continued path for evolution, growth, and impact.

The Chief Development Officer will provide leadership, strategy, and management of all components of Hope for Henry’s fundraising efforts. In the short-term, the Chief Development Officer will develop and execute a strategy for doubling the current annual revenue of $2 million over the next three years, including overseeing a campaign to raise $5 million specifically to finance Hope for Henry's expansion to 100 hospitals nationwide. In addition to a high-touch stewardship and donor recognition program, the Chief Development Officer will provide leadership on institutional, corporate, and legacy giving strategies while personally managing a small major gifts portfolio. The Chief Development Officer will be Hope for Henry’s chief fundraising ambassador—partnering with the Chief Executive Officer—to inspire and train staff and leadership to further a culture of philanthropy. This is a highly entrepreneurial opportunity which will allow the Chief Development Officer to build and nurture a program that will significantly increase support for Hope for Henry.

Hope for Henry is on a mission to reinvent how hospitals care for children and their families. Using innovative, scientifically tested programs, Hope for Henry helps hospitalized children confront the challenges of serious illness, adhere to their medical programs, and thrive. Hope for Henry incentivizes children to take all the steps necessary to successfully complete demanding, life-saving procedures that are often frightening for younger patients. Since 2003, Hope for Henry has improved the lives of more than 100,000 hospitalized children and is used in over 30 hospitals nationwide. By 2026, this will expand to more than 100 hospitals.

In hospitals across the country, Hope for Henry programs are having a positive impact on pediatric patients. Super Rewards for Super Kids is a procedure-based incentive program that helps children successfully complete challenging medical procedures like proton beam therapy, MRIs, dressing changes, port access, and many more. Super Rewards is the culmination of nearly twenty years of research and applies principles of behavioral economics to pediatric care. Robust evidence from hospital staff using the program proves that it works. Children participating no longer rely on sedation to complete necessary procedures, and patients and families now have a much better understanding of what to expect before a procedure because of the clear graphics and simple descriptions.

A bachelor's degree of an equivalent combination of education and experience is required for this position as is at least ten years of leadership experience as part of a high-performing team. All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and résumé. Cover letters should be responsive to the mission of the Hope for Henry Foundation as well as the responsibilities and qualifications presented in the prospectus.

The salary range for this position is $150,000 to $200,000 annually.
