San Francisco, CA

Chief Development Officer

m/Oppenheim is assisting Project Open Hand in San Francisco in the search for a Chief Development Officer (CDO) to develop and implement an ambitious contributed revenue strategy for cultivating and stewarding current and next generation funders. For more information, please review the complete Position Description.

Founded in 1985, Project Open Hand (POH) provides “meals with love” to critically ill neighbors and seniors. What began as a grassroots response to the AIDS epidemic that wiped out one-third of the gay men in San Francisco, POH has evolved into an innovative, outcomes-driven, client-centered partner in the public health and medical arenas. In addition to providing 2,500 medically-tailored nutritious meals plus 200 bags of healthy groceries daily, POH is a founding partner of the Food Is Medicine Coalition with a mission to advance public policy that supports access to food and nutrition services to severe and/or chronic illnesses nationwide. Governor Brown signed legislation providing $6M for a three year pilot project to demonstrate the savings to healthcare costs when the chronically ill is provided medically-tailored meals. POH’s innovative approach to nutrition as positioned the agency as an expert in the field, and has garnered contracts and support by government agencies and private foundations.

POH has an operating budget of $13M with approximately 60% received through contributed revenue. Central toward POH achieving their goals is to take a refreshed, forward-thinking approach to increasing contributed revenue. In this newly created position, the CDO has direct oversight for development and marketing/communications and will be a hands-on fundraiser who will spend much their time out in the community developing strategically important relationships.
