After a successful search for their Vice President of Human Resources, the Muscular Dystrophy Association has once again teamed up with DG&A to tackle two executive-level positions: the Chief Information Officer and the National Vice President of Online Fundraising.
The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) is the world’s leading nonprofit health agency dedicated to finding treatments and cures for muscular dystrophy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and other neuromuscular diseases. They do so by funding worldwide research; by providing comprehensive health care services and support to MDA families nationwide; and by rallying communities to fight back through advocacy, fundraising and local engagement. It’s special work powered by special people who give generously.
For more than 60 years, MDA has provided help and hope for families living with neuromuscular disease. The Association dedicates 77 cents of every dollar it spends directly to research, services and education. MDA maintains a network of 200 specialized clinics across the United States and in Puerto Rico. MDA is pursuing the full spectrum of research approaches toward combating neuromuscular diseases, from fundamental discoveries of the causes of disease to clinical trials of potential treatments. MDA also helps spread this scientific knowledge and train the next generation of scientific leaders by funding national and international research conferences, clinical research training grants and career development grants.
The Chief Information Officer is responsible for the enterprise technical vision and leading all aspects of the core technology development, implementation, and supporting technology operations. The CIO will play an integral role in establishing the strategic technology direction the organization decides to take. The CIO provides formal supervision and coaching for the Architectural, Application Development, Security, and Infrastructure and Operations functions and sets vision and direction to inspire and drive continuous improvement of the organization’s Information Technology System (ITS) policies, standards, and procedures.

This VP will leverage technology to provide an online foundation for donor engagement: to access a broader group of potential donors; achieve higher levels of giving; increase the efficiency of fundraising; and improve ease of data capture. The Vice President of Online Fundraising will proactively manage MDA’s internal & external resources to ensure efficient and effective execution by streamlining work processes, utilizing technology as appropriate and implementing best practices.
