myFace, formerly the National Foundation for Facial Reconstruction (NFFR),was founded in 1951 and is a nonprofit organization addressing the all-too-visible plight of those with facial differences by assuring them access to comprehensive and highly personalized team care. myFace funds the myFace Center at the Hansjörg Wyss Department of Plastic Surgery at NYU Langone Medical Center. The myFace Center provides integrative, highly specialized and personalized team care to all those who request treatment, regardless of the type or severity of the craniofacial deformity, the length of treatment, or the family’s ability to afford care.
The Executive Director will join myFace at a critical time for the organization. With a new Chair at the Wyss Department of Plastic Surgery and a recently recruited craniofacial surgeon, myFace will have the opportunity to enhance its position and its commitment to serving children and adults in need. The Executive Director will be supported by a strong and dedicated Board of Trustees seeking to engage in a comprehensive discussion on the strategic goals and objectives of myFace that will lead it into the future with the greatest impact.
We seek a proven leader whose participation and experience has demonstrated an ability to increase and sustain a higher level of philanthropy, awareness and enthusiasm in order to make a difference in the success of an organization. This person will be a strategic thinker with a significant fundraising background and leadership experience raising funds on behalf of a nonprofit institution as well as management and financial expertise leading Board, staff, and volunteers in a strong philanthropic culture.
Given the abundant culture of philanthropy in New York, we seek a person who makes people comfortable and is genuine in his or her engagement. Experience in healthcare or hospital philanthropy is supportive but not an essential part of one’s ability to succeed in this position; the ability and capacity to understand the patient and family experiences as well as the complexities of academic medical centers is important. Success working with board members in creating appropriate avenues for their participation in event planning, organizational development and fundraising is highly preferred.
An undergraduate degree from a college or university is required; a graduate degree is preferred. Evidence of continuing education through conferences, seminars and workshops in fundraising techniques would be a plus.
