HopeWest seeks a Chief Development Officer to lead the strategic development, operational oversight, and coordination of all philanthropic efforts for HopeWest programs including capital campaigns, major, annual, and memorial giving, planned giving, endowment, grants, special events and future fundraising efforts.

HopeWest, through creativity, volunteerism, and philanthropy, profoundly changes the experiences of aging, illness, and grief—one family at a time. Whatever challenges someone is facing with aging, serious illness, or grief, the team at HopeWest wants to help. They help shoulder the burden of dealing with extreme health and end-of-life situations. They ease pain and relieve stress. They stand beside patients and loved ones with sincerity, respect, and a sure hand to guide through difficult times. HopeWest is committed to meeting the unique physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of patients and families, ensuring they receive exceptional care and comfort during life’s most difficult moments. Having just wrapped up 2023, its care impact was significant. HopeWest served nearly 2,000 patients in hospice care, 250 in palliative care, 560 children and teens through HopeWest Kids navigating grief, 530 adults through its bereavement program, and grew service in its PACE program from 93 to 176 participants.

"As we look towards the future, our philanthropy team stands on an exhilarating trajectory, fueled by innovation, creativity, and boundless opportunities for transformative fundraising. We are not just raising funds, we are crafting experiences, forging connections, and igniting passions that resonate with our supporters and donors. If you are looking to invest your skills and time in an organization and a community where you can see and hear the daily impact being made, HopeWest might be right for you." — Cassie Mitchell, HopeWest President and Chief Executive Officer
