Who we are: The Seattle Children's Hospital and Research Foundation supports Seattle Children's mission to provide hope, care and cures to help every child live the healthiest and most fulfilling life possible. The Foundation is in the public phase of a comprehensive campaign called It Starts with Yes, The Campaign for Seattle Children's, with a $1 billion goal.
The Foundation's team is 60+ dedicated professionals who collaboratively work to build enduring philanthropic relationships for Seattle Children's through a nationally recognized, robust fundraising program. The comprehensive program includes major and annual gifts, corporate donations, private grants, legacy gifts, and the nation's largest Guild Association, made up of passionate volunteers who support our mission through fundraising projects and events.
We have a vision to be the charity of choice in the Pacific Northwest and a global leader in pediatric healthcare philanthropy. Thanks to our donors, in the fiscal year that ended September 30, 2017, the Foundation raised $115 million in private support for child health. Annually the Foundation receives in excess of 100,000 gifts, including nearly 30 leadership gifts of $1 million+.
What you will do: Manage production and evaluate effectiveness of donor events, seminars, professional advisor outreach, direct marketing, publications and other marketing opportunities that aim to strengthen relationships with constituents, educate them on charitable planning techniques and increase the number and value of legacy gifts supporting Seattle Children’s. As assigned, project manage responsibilties within key initiatives and activities. Partner with Donor Relations, Stewardship, Marketing and Communications, and Annual Giving to strengthen systems for the inclusion of Legacy Services.
