Donor Engagement Specialist

OHSU Foundation , Portland

Job - Non-Profit

Close Date: 04/01/2020

At OHSU, we know that it is not enough to practice medicine. We need to change it.

And in order to change it, we need to push the very edges of medicine. To ask the questions that nobody else is asking. To disrupt the status quo with bold ideas.

That is the OHSU way. And that is the work we support and advance at the OHSU and Doernbecher Foundations.

The OHSU Foundation (OHSUF) is one of the largest public university foundations in the Northwest, and exists to advance OHSU’s vital mission of creating a healthier world by igniting the power of philanthropy. OHSUF is a mission-driven organization, unrelentingly committed to both our donors and our employees. We work hard, collaborate with brilliant and passionate colleagues, and innovate to inspire transformational giving. At the heart of it all, we connect people’s passion with impact.

If you’re looking for a meaningful and rewarding career, this could be the perfect place for you!
