Chapel Hill, NC – Miracle Feet – Full-time Position

About Us
MiracleFeet is a global nonprofit working to eliminate a leading cause of physical disability worldwide. Over two million children live with the severe consequences of a treatable birth defect known as clubfoot, and 175,000 more babies are born with it every year. Thanks to a non-surgical solution called the Ponseti method, 95 percent of cases can be fully treated for less than $500. Since 2010, MiracleFeet has scaled this proven, low-cost treatment to 27 countries where children previously had limited or no access to care. Still, today fewer than one in five children has access to treatment.
MiracleFeet is the largest organization exclusively dedicated to this global health crisis. As we continue to grow, we need enthusiastic and inspired team members to help secure the funding required to end this solvable problem for every child on the planet.

Summary
The Major Gifts Officer will support the development and execution of MiracleFeet’s major donor fundraising strategy by managing and growing a diverse portfolio of individual, corporate, and family foundation donors and prospects. MiracleFeet plans to raise $15M in gifts and future pledges over the next 2 years in order to grow its annual operating budget from $6M to $9M per year by 2023. This position will be responsible for developing the donor pipeline to support this trajectory.
