Founded in 1962 and established as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in 1997, the AHIMA Foundation envisions a future where health information serves people and where better health outcomes are powered by health information for all. We believe that Health information is a force for greater good and we have a responsibility to unlock this potential for public benefit.
We are passionate about empowering consumers and communities to be engaged and activated participants in their everyday health and wellness journey, using trusted health information from traditional and emerging sources.
We do this through programs that build awareness, advocate for consumers around the access, use and protection of their health information in traditional and non-traditional health settings, help consumers understand and use their health information, and address the challenge of disparate information by helping consumers aggregate and share their comprehensive health information as they see fit. The AHIMA Foundation also conducts research that supports its consumer-focused agenda and continues its support of health information professionals through educational and leadership supports.
While the Foundation has been in existence for some time, the organization recently established its new consumer focused strategy and programmatic agenda as a key part of organization transformation efforts within the AHIMA enterprise which constitutes a 501(c) (6) parent organization and its wholly owned 501(c) (3), the AHIMA Foundation.
The Corporate and Foundation Giving Director will be part of a new Foundation team. This is an opportunity for someone who relishes the chance to build an institutional giving program from scratch and enjoys the challenge of working in a start-up environment. This position is suited for someone who is comfortable with a high degree of ambiguity typical in start-ups and is committed to doing what it takes to build a successful corporate and foundation giving program, working closely with program staff.
The Director of Corporate and Foundation Giving for the AHIMA Foundation is responsible for ensuring fundraising revenue from corporate and foundation partners to meet the organization’s programmatic needs. Reporting to the Executive Director, the Director plays an important role in creating a strategy to identify, cultivate and solicit partnerships with corporations and foundations, and develops strategic stewardship efforts to keep all funders engaged in the AHIMA Foundation’s mission.
