Position:  Director of Development, Wexner Medical Center

Salary:  $77,000-$92,000

The Ohio State University’s Wexner Medical Center seeks a collaborative, mission-driven fundraiser to serve as a major gift officer for a variety of healthcare initiatives such as internal medicine and diabetes. The Director of Development will understand the mission, needs and value proposition of the university hospital and build relationships with prospective donors to increase philanthropic support. Donors such as grateful patients/families, friends, corporations, and/or alumni will be identified by listening for opportunities to align their interests and passions with opportunities to propel the work of our physician scientists forward.

The aim of the role is to actively manage a portfolio of prospective donors to be asked for gifts of $100,000 and above. Preparation for the “ask” will include creative and strategic utilization of resources to determine the prospective donor’s capacity for giving, build their interest, raise their sights, sustain their engagement, and obtain a gift. Success in the position will be guided by annual metrics such as number of monthly meetings, number of gift commitments, and dollars raised. Specific metrics are determined with experience level, unit size, prospect portfolio, and past performance in mind. Central resources such as a robust donor database and reporting and analytics tools exist to help the role achieve goals and manage an allocated budget.

The Director reports to the Senior Director of Development and operates with a high degree of independence to make decisions, solve problems, negotiate, and adapt to shifting priorities. Expectations include stellar communications and interactions with constituents, genuine collaboration with colleagues across Advancement and the university and Wexner Medical Center, diplomacy, and discretion. Strong partnerships with physician leadership are vital. This role may require some travel and occasional evening and weekend work.  

All members of Advancement are part of creating an inclusive culture that inspires an exceptionally diverse and talented team and are measured on their adherence to the following core competencies:  leadership, continuous improvement, teamwork and collaboration, and communication/interpersonal effectiveness.

About the Wexner Medical Center’s University Hospital
Construction is well underway for a new 26-floor inpatient hospital tower with 820 adult beds and 60 NICU beds.
