Founded in 1962, the 501(c)3 nonprofit organization now known as KeraLink International (f/k/a Tissue Banks International) set the standard for addressing corneal blindness. In the U.S., due to the work of KeraLink and similar organizations, untreated corneal blindness has essentially been eliminated, with about 50,000 needed transplants being performed each year. Outside the U.S. the situation is drastically different.
There are currently an estimated 10+ million people living with corneal blindness, most of whom could be successfully treated it treatment were available in the places they live. 98% of those affected live in low and middle income countries (“LMICs”). KeraLink is now exclusively focused on addressing corneal disease and blindness in LMICs, where the need is most acute. While human tissue use will remain the standard of treatment for some years to come, KeraLink will use its resources to explore new techniques, technologies and financing innovations to tackle corneal blindness and disease in new and scalable ways.
Over the next five years, KeraLink International will execute a strategic plan to restore sight to 50,000 people suffering from corneal blindness who do not currently have access to corneal transplantation. This is just the first step in taking the big leap to restore sight to more than 10 million people suffering from corneal blindness worldwide. KeraLink seeks to eliminate corneal blindness globally by exploring all means including present prevention and treatment methodologies as well as new technologies and programs.

Since 2007, the Washington Nationals Dream Foundation (Foundation) has served as the philanthropic arm of the Major League Baseball franchise, distributing more than $8 million in grants to local organizations. With the opening of its Youth Baseball Academy (“Academy”) in 2013, the team’s philanthropic impact extended to on-the-ground programming.
Building off the success of these two entities and an expanded vision for maximizing impact, the Washington Nationals are developing an enterprise philanthropic organization, using the team’s brand as a platform to activate citizen-fans, businesses, foundations, and civic leaders collectively to bring about positive change. In the spirit of One Pursuit for a better Washington, this new enterprise will catalyze mass citizen participation. In so doing, we aim to become the best philanthropic organization in professional sports.
To achieve this goal, we are seeking to add energetic and passionate individuals dedicated to building a re-imagined philanthropic entity under the banner of the Washington Nationals. A key member of this team will be the Senior Director, Development (”Sr. Director”).

The role exclusively focuses on securing traditional philanthropic revenue defined as: major gifts from individuals, corporations, foundations; event sponsorships, including the annual Washington Nationals Homecoming Gala and an existing suite of events supporting the Academy; corporate, foundation, and government grants; and other fundraising and cultivation events. The Sr. Director also will have overarching responsibility for growing, and managing, the donor pipeline. The role is within the Marketing and Development department, working alongside colleagues dedicated to citizen-fan (grassroots) fundraising and marketing.
The ideal candidate will have a successful record of securing major gifts from individuals, corporations, foundations, and event sponsors. S/He will have experience managing a team and a proven ability to work in a fast-paced, entrepreneurial environment. S/He must be a diligent and detail-oriented cultivator and steward of relationships – with prospects, donors, and other stakeholders, including department colleagues and other Washington Nationals front office employee. S/He must also demonstrate a solution-oriented mindset at all times.
