Chief Development Officer

Rolling Deadline  |  Full-Time Job  |  , CA US


Medic Mobile is looking for an inspiring leader to serve on the leadership team as Chief Development Officer. This role will deepen and expand our philanthropic relationships and oversee the end-to-end experience for funding partners, ensuring grant funding is resilient, strategic, and available for our organization’s ambitious work.
The CDO will join Medic Mobile at a time when our funding partnerships are strong and there are opportunities to expand work with institutions and individuals. We have built efficient and effective fundraising and grant management systems, and the CDO will be welcomed by talented teammates ready to contribute. We expect the CDO to lead the strategic growth of the development team, with 1-2 manager roles crafted and filled in the coming year.
Our fundraising approach has been to find true partners who resonate with our mission, vision, and strategic direction. We recognize that funders are people (!) and we do our part to build trust and focus on impact. We are transparent with new and potential partners about what we are prioritizing, trying, learning, changing, and celebrating. We are seeking a CDO to accompany our team and our funding partners through a strategic and relationship-based approach. Traditional fundraising experience is perhaps less important than proven leadership and exceptional abilities to communicate, inspire others, understand and translate the details of our work, and collaborate with senior leaders within and outside our organization.
