Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Division of Philanthropy Careers

About the Division of Philanthropy

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute & The Jimmy Fund

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Division of Philanthropy, supporting Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and The Jimmy Fund, seeks passionate, focused, and resourceful fundraising and operations staff who want to work in a collaborative and rewarding environment. In the fiscal year 2020, the Division of Philanthropy raised over $314 million due to the hard work of our 280+ dedicated staff and committed donors working together to achieve Dana-Farber’s mission to create a world without cancer.

Dana-Farber is currently in the largest and most ambitious fundraising effort in the Institute’s history – The Dana-Farber Campaign | Defy Cancer. Launched publicly in May 2021, the goal of the $2 billion campaign is to defy cancer at every turn and harness new techniques and technologies to prevent, treat, and defy cancer, resulting in more lives saved, more families intact, more dreams realized. The comprehensive campaign is coordinated around four pillars that build on our strengths and will accelerate our progress – Revolutionary Science, Extraordinary Care, and Exceptional Expertise – as well as the mission critical flexible funds that will allow us to change the face of cancer forever.
