Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international humanitarian organization that delivers impartial medical care to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters, or exclusion from health care in over 70 countries.
We welcome candidates who bring a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences to join us in working toward MSF’s common mission.
Our dynamic Development Department is responsible for raising over $500 million annually to support the mission of the organization.
In the Development Department, the Major Gifts team is responsible for raising nearly $95 million from major donors.
Reporting to the Director of High Touch Audiences, the Director of Major Gifts manages a national donor portfolio of $25,000+ level donors to raise more than $100 million annually. This role leads a team of Major Gift Officers to grow major donor relationships from a pool of 1,200+ high-wealth prospects, retaining and stewarding these donors to upgrade giving. The ideal Director of Major Gifts is an innovative frontline-fundraiser who has experience growing a major donor base, inspiring a team, executing fundamental major-donor fundraising processes, and engaging directly with donors to solicit and acquire transformational-level gifts.
This is an unique opportunity for a development professional with success in both management and individual major-gifts fundraising to run a crucial development function at a premier humanitarian organization. The Director of Major Gifts will be responsible for ensuring that his/her team is a focused, productive and proactive unit that meets or exceeds its fundraising goals. Working closely with other senior development managers, researchers, channels leads, and communications and program staff, the Director of Major Gifts and their team are expected to identify, cultivate, solicit, and steward high-value donors in support of MSF-USA.
The successful candidate will bring formal high-touch fundraising experience, a proven process, an entrepreneurial spirit, and the desire to seize funding opportunities with confidence and speed.
