What You'll Do:CDH International currently has an openings for our Executive Board of Directors for fundraisers. This seat requires well connected, outgoing personalities who have a heart to help medically fragile children.
Must be 18 years or older
Details:We are looking to capacity build in 2021 as the need for our work is growing exponentially.
The Board meets every 2nd Tuesday of the month virtually with physical meetings once a quarter (in non-pandemic years).
Our charity has a small fundraising committee of patient parents those hold a few small events a year. Our income is $250,000 per year to cover services to over 6500 patients in our membership in 74 countries. We also fund research, run the CDH Patient Registry, hold conferences and more. We are able to stretch a dollar very far, have a low overhead and are good stewards and have been able to do all of our work without a Grant Writer or Fundraiser on staff.
There is much more work that needs to be done and we want to raise enough money to fund much more Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia research, help patient families with new services and also hire 4 more full-time employees, as well as open a physical office in Europe within the next year. We need to bring on the best possible Board Members to help us meet these goals.
All Executive Board members are required to make 10 out of 12 meetings per year, attend our annual Masquerading Angels Ball (in Raleigh) and are encouraged to join in other charity events including; lobbying in DC for medical research, attending our annual patient family conference, attending important medical conferences. Travel is sometimes necessary to events but only attendance at local events are required.
Board Members are also expected to help raise awareness, fundraise and contribute to the cause.
Our charity is 25 years old, award winning and in 2020 we created NGO's in Switzerland, the UK, Netherlands, Singapore and Hong Kong (with separate Boards). We are the world's oldest and largest charity for Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia and have the responsibility of saving the lives of 10,000's of children every year. We expect our Board Members to take this responsibility seriously, to be active in their roles, support our employees and members, and make sure the charity is funded.
We also all get along very well and try to have fun when we can while dealing with something so serious. The best perk of this role is meeting the kids and the families that we serve and knowing that we are making a real difference.
