Duke Health is the youngest of the nation’s leading medical institutions, growing in just 87 years from a regional hospital, medical school, and nursing school into one of the country’s leading clinical and biomedical research enterprises. Duke Health encompasses the Duke University School of Medicine, Duke National University of Singapore Graduate Medical School, Duke University School of Nursing, Duke University Health System, and programs within the Duke Global Health Institute and in schools and centers across Duke University.
This is the ideal opportunity for a seasoned, talented, and collaborative institutional fundraiser to bring expertise, initiative, and new ideas to an established foundation pipeline and a growing corporate giving program. The Senior Executive Director will be a proven fundraiser and experienced manager with a demonstrated track record of soliciting, securing, and stewarding six-, seven- and eight-figure institutional gifts for an academic medical center, large university, or similarly complex system.
The Senior Executive Director will provide leadership in identifying, securing, and supporting a host of institutional approaches across Duke Health, working independently and as a member of a talented team. The Senior Executive Director will expertly navigate the complexity of Duke Health to partner effectively with physicians, researchers, faculty, and colleagues and will serve as the primary contact for Duke Health’s annual approaches to The Duke Endowment (TDE).
The Senior Executive Director will have the opportunity to infuse the established work of the unit with new approaches and innovative tactics. Candidates who bring the requisite experience, coupled with a flexible, creative and collaborative nature, are strongly encouraged to apply.
