Our mission is to ensure that no youth waits in foster care, ever, for the lifetime love and support of one caring adult. Our work is in partnership with state and local governments, bringing philanthropic dollars and innovation to the search for families for the longest waiting children in foster care. Our total budget is about $6.0 million and growing, with approximately one-third of that revenue coming from federal, state, and local government sources. The remainder is raised philanthropically. We have approximately 70 staff located primarily in Colorado, Utah, and Nevada. Our work is data-driven and meaningful. There are approximately 120,000 children across the country actively in need of a permanent home. These children are in the system due to abuse and neglect – and through no fault of their own. Data shows that targeted recruitment and support can increase the odds of finding a permanent, loving, supportive family, and that having that family dramatically increases the odds of success for a child. We change the world – one child and one family at a time. To date, we have helped to connect over 9,000 children with families and we are currently actively recruiting for approximately 450 children. Job Summary: Reporting to the Director of Donor Relations and working cooperatively with staff and volunteers of The Adoption Exchange, the Development Coordinator ensures integrity of the donor database, processes gifts and acknowledgments, provides support for donor data reporting and prepares donor mailings.

Board Governance: • Reporting to and working closely with the Board of Directors on governance, policy decisions, organizational strategy, fundraising, and increasing the overall visibility of the organization. • Communicating effectively with the Board and providing, in a timely and accurate manner, all information necessary for the Board to function properly and to make informed decisions. • Helping to organize board/committee meetings and assisting with board recruitment. • Soliciting advice and guidance, when appropriate, from the full board or individual members.

This responsibility includes prioritizing organizational goals and maintaining focus on key objectives. • Serving as ROHCF’s primary spokesperson to the organization’s constituents, the media, and the general public, along with representing the organization across Colorado at community and civic events, professional association meetings, with ROHCF’s partner organizations, and within Colorado’s oncology community to help ensure that ROHCF is a visible, well-respected organization. • Actively pursuing collaboration opportunities and partnerships, including potential acquisitions/mergers, to enhance ROHCF’s effectiveness and ability to implement its mission. Organization Operations: • Ensuring that ROHCF is a stable, well-run organization from day to day. • Hiring, retaining, supervising, and collaborating with a competent, qualified staff and providing the leadership to create a culture that is welcoming, supportive, and inclusive. • Ensuring that ROHCF maintains effective employment and administrative policies and procedures for all functions and for the day-to-day operation of the organization. • Overseeing vendor relations, including review, approval, and monitoring of contracts for services.
