Welcoming nearly a half-million visitors a year, the USS Constitution Museum offers an array of exhibits and demonstrations that transport visitors back in time to experience life on the ship and in Boston during the 18th-19th centuries. The museum’s robust education program serves thousands of school children each year and offers an award-winning online curriculum used by teachers across the country. A landmark initiative, “All Aboard!,” provides student-centered STEM and history-based programs that integrate ship and museum hands-on and immersive experiences.

In 2004 the museum was honored at the White House with one of six National Awards for Museum and Library Service.

Lawrence General Hospital
Director of Development
(posted 09/17/2018)

Lawrence, MA

Job Description
www.lawrencegeneral.org

Lawrence General Hospital – a leading regional medical center clinically affiliated with Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Tufts Medical Center’s Floating Hospital for Children – seeks an experienced development professional to champion a highly respected institution that provides critical healthcare to area residents as well as innovative and progressive community outreach programs to underserved populations. Reporting to the Chief Development Officer, the Director of Development will capitalize on the momentum of a recently completed capital campaign by building and managing a portfolio of donors and prospects with a focus on individual, major, planned, or corporate gifts.
Each year Lawrence General provides vital health services to nearly 300,000 residents throughout the Merrimack Valley. With a legacy dating back to the late 1800s, the hospital today offers outstanding services in the complete array of clinical areas, including primary care, cardiovascular services, cancer care, women’s health, pediatrics, orthopedics and spine treatment, and emergency services. Lawrence General has national accreditations for excellence in its trauma center, bariatric, imaging and cardiac programs and distinctions in recognition of its strong clinical programs and commitment to safety; these include “A” ratings by the Leapfrog Group for meeting the highest healthcare safety standards in the United States.

With annual revenues of $600 million, Lawrence General’s census averages 12,000 inpatients, 70,000 emergency visits, 1,800 births, and 200,000 outpatient visits. A leading regional health care system, its network includes 600 local physicians, and multiple locations including Andover Medical Center. The hospital also brings physicians, specialists, and services on-site through its tertiary partnerships with Boston academic medical centers.

Lawrence General’s most recent capital campaign helped fund major facility improvements and program expansions, the centerpiece of which is the Santagati Surgical Center which opened in 2017. Part of an overall $73 million multi-year master plan, the new center increases the size of the total surgical services space by about five times, housing seven surgical suites – including the only hybrid operating room in the region – as well as leading-edge video, lighting, and air-handling technology; an onsite pathology lab; expanded space for pre- and post-surgical care; and enhanced and supportive waiting areas for families.

Position Summary:
The Director of Development reports to the CDO and plays a key collaborative role as a front-line fundraiser and member of a small, evolving development team — stewarding the existing donor base while identifying and developing relationships with new donors. Working in collaboration with the CDO and Director of Development Operations, s/he will help with strategy and planning to grow annual giving, grateful patient fundraising, and lay the groundwork for the next capital campaign.


Qualifications
Qualifications:
Bachelor’s degree required, 5+ years’ progressively responsible fundraising experience (healthcare preferred).
