Our ideal candidate will have a bachelor’s degree and at least five years’ experience of fund development, preferably in the education and nonprofit fields.  This person will have demonstrated excellent organizational, managerial, and communication skills and a background in coordinating nonprofit donation strategies that inspire leadership, teams, staff and volunteers.  Employees who are successful at the Health Trust have the ability to work well independently and within a team environment, and the ability to manage multiple deadline-driven projects.  We are a fun, family-friendly environment, and so a naturally friendly, punctual, professional self- starter who enjoys being part of a team that thrives on helping others to achieve good health and quality of life would fit in well with us.

We offer a comprehensive benefits program including medical, dental, vision, and life insurance.  We have a 403b retirement contribution plan, and generous time-off policies.
