This position carries a broad, comprehensive responsibility to build and acquire financial support for our programs by increasing public, private, and foundational understanding of our unique and celebrated mission and closing deals on funding. The position will report directly to the Executive Director and holds tremendous potential for growth as dictated by a combination of consistent activity and desirable outcomes.
We are an outpatient, behavioral addiction center which provides the highest quality of addiction treatments available anywhere, to those who cannot afford to pay for them. This attracts populations of homeless, displaced, psychologically injured, and formerly incarcerated who are welcomed with love and lack of judgment.
You will be joining a recipient of 2018 Best Chicago Companies to Work For because it's true. We are. And as winners of a 2018 Chicago Innovations Award we have been deemed "the most unique and effective treatment center in the United States" by industry watchdogs and several national lecturers in our industry. We're not in it for the glory, however, because we are a benevolent 501C3 organization with a unique clinical protocol that works, REALLY works! We are on a trajectory of upward growth that is scary powerful and supported by a combination of private donors and third-party reimbursements that needs a third leg of support from grants, foundations, and mega-donors.
That'll be your job!
We're looking for a keeper, a new family member, who will earn a place amongst us with their dedication and outcomes so experience in major gifts, campaigns, events is necessary as is the ability to get corporate donors and foundations to pay attention to the important work we're doing.
Grant writing will be required so an ability to source, read, understand, and respond to RFP's is essential.
We need a strategic plan that will provide us a path to self-sufficiency so a background in doing this kind of thing successfully is what we'll be looking for.
Additional Salary Information: Negotiable upwards and downwards depending on what skill sets you bring.
