Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with DAP Health in the search for a Director of Individual Giving and Donor Relations.

Reporting to the Chief Development Officer, the Director of Individual Giving and Donor Relations will lead efforts to secure financial support from individuals. The Director will meet quarterly and annual goals by identifying, cultivating, soliciting, and stewarding a diverse base of donors while leading a team responsible for managing DAP Health's mid-level giving program, Partners for Life, and DAP Health’s Impact Programs, as well as donor communications, stewardship planning, and gift planning. The Director will partner with the Chief Development Officer in the creation and successful execution of a substantial and sustainable individual giving program while working in close partnership with other members of the development team. The Director will also work closely with DAP Health’s brand marketing team and the Senior Director of Development, Events and Operations, to fully leverage DAP Health’s outreach activities and events to meaningfully engage prospective and current donors.

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 most 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 help 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. 

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. A bachelor's degree or an equivalent combination of education and experience is preferred for this position as is at least five years of non-profit fundraising experience, with experience in healthcare fundraising preferred. DAP Health will consider candidates with a broad range of backgrounds. If you are excited about this role and feel that you can contribute to the DAP Health, but your experience does not exactly align with every qualification listed above, we encourage you to apply.

The salary range for this position is $115,000 to $126,000 annually.

DAP Health is committed to the inclusion of all qualified candidates. If you require reasonable accommodation in completing this application, interviewing, or participating in the selection process, please contact Michael Carver at
