There are five fund development positions for every one qualified candidate. Typically, your human resources team is much more experienced in recruiting medical staff than philanthropy professionals, and they are often consumed with hiring all positions within the organization.
Accordant Philanthropy® only serves health care philanthropy organizations. We are a team of health care philanthropy professionals working exclusively with and for health care philanthropy leadership. Each specialized search is actively led by an Accordant consultant with significant, frontline, health care philanthropy experience.
This not only makes us more agile in working our professional health care networks but also means Accordant brings the experience to ask the right questions, to understand the nuances of each candidate’s response and to actively progress qualified applicants.
This approach positions us to find a better quality of candidate every time. From Chief Philanthropy Officers and Directors of Development to Major Gifts Officers and Gift Planning Officers, filling hard-to-find philanthropy leadership roles with ideal candidates is our specialty.
Accordant Philanthropy is a trusted partner with premier health care systems throughout and beyond the United States. We know what is at stake in your critical health care mission, and we have the relationships and expertise to identify and place right-fit, A-level talent.
The average tenure of philanthropy officers in health care organizations is 16 months. The cost to replace a philanthropy officer averages $127,000. You cannot afford to waste your time and resources on the wrong talent.
