San Jose, CA | October 5, 2020
An estimated one million women in Africa and Asia suffer from obstetric fistula, a debilitating childbirth injury that leaves a woman incontinent, and as a result, too often abandoned by her family and shunned by her community. We are in business to end this needless suffering. Surgery is the only cure, which we deliver through partners in more than 20 countries.
Over the last decade, we have emerged as the global leader in fistula treatment, treating more women in more places than even the United Nations or the US government. We are raising five times as much money as we were a decade ago and treating 15 times as many women. But we are far from done and we need the help of a talented and driven development and communications leader to help us end fistula in a generation.
True to our Silicon Valley roots, Fistula Foundation is dynamic and growth-oriented. We pride ourselves on being run like a successful, financially disciplined for-profit organization; the big difference is our bottom line is not measured in earnings per share or profit, but in the number of women we can help. It also means that we “lean hard” into technology and the efficiencies it brings, enabling us to do more with fewer resources. Fistula Foundation is committed to delivering results against our mission and aspires to the values of the Effective Altruism movement.
Fistula Foundation seeks an experienced, ambitious, and globally-minded SVP, Development and Communications to lead the fundraising team and partner with the CEO to advance the organization’s strategic growth.
The SVP, Development and Communications will be based in San Jose, CA once it is safe to do so.
