ABF’s Executive Director is the organization’s chief executive, and is responsible for managing ABF’s staff, finances, brand, partner relationships and other resources, in order to fund innovative brain research. The Executive Director and ABF Team will identify research areas that would benefit from added investment, take a lead solicitation role in engaging donors to fund such investments, and will build strong relationships with the AAN and other allied health advocacy groups such as the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, ALS Association, Alzheimer’s Association, the Michael J. Fox Foundation and many others.
American Brain Foundation (ABF) was founded in 1992 as part of the American Academy of Neurology (AAN), the world’s largest professional association of neurologists with more than 40,000 members, and subsequently spun off as an independent 501c3 nonprofit organization. In 2022 ABF raised about $6M, in 2023 is expected to raise $8M, and over the next five years is positioned for continued fundraising growth. The next Executive Director will manage this growth, and will in the process scale the organization’s board, staff, programs, partner and donor relationships, fundraising and its public profile.
