Hope Haven, a nonprofit in Jacksonville, Florida, offers hope that transforms families. Our mission is to ensure that children and families realize their full potential by providing specialized services and individualized educational opportunities. The chief development officer (CDO) will play a key role to ensure we reach our goal of being the national model for support of families whose loved ones face a range of educational, developmental, and mental health concerns.
As a contributing member of the organization’s Executive Team, this new CDO position requires a highly-motivated and very successful fundraising executive with grant writing experience to assume a pivotal role in the evolution of our fast-growing, highly-respected organization. Hope Haven also offers the opportunity to create and deploy strategies that leverage a unique opportunity: our 100th Anniversary in 2026! The CDO should be a mission-focused, strategic, collaborative, results-driven, experienced creative leader and manager with a proven track record of growing a diverse and sustainable revenue portfolio, building and amplifying a positive brand position, and leading a team of diverse, talented individuals.
The CDO will play a key role in supporting Hope Haven’s projected annual budget growth from $3.5M to $5M over the next three years. We seek to generate the resources, partnerships, and platform required to achieve our goal of becoming a national model where emerging theories are tested and piloted, and proven interventions are sustained in a collaborative, multidisciplinary environment.
