The TLC Foundation for Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors seeks an experienced development professional to join their team as the Major Gifts Officer.
This is a newly created role reporting to the Executive Director with the goal of building upon the success of the organization’s recent first-ever major gifts campaign which raised over $2.5M to fund groundbreaking research into promising new treatments, with the hope of one day finding a cure.
The Major Gifts Officer will have the opportunity to create and implement a plan for strengthening relationships with existing major donors and growing the organization’s community of support. This person will spend approximately 40% of their time travelling around the country to meet with donors who are making this important work possible, most frequently on the West Coast and in New England. When not travelling, the Major Gifts Officer may choose to be based out of the Santa Cruz office, or may work remotely from their home city.
The TLC Foundation’s mission is to end the suffering caused by body-focused repetitive behaviors, such as skin picking and hair pulling. With an annual budget of approximately $1M, TLC is poised to grow its impact over the next several years through new outreach, treatment, and prevention strategies with the goal of more powerfully and compassionately serving people across the country who are affected by this condition.
