Special Events and Sponsorship Manager-12709

  • Full Time
  • Anywhere




9Health:365 is creating a new Special Events and Sponsorship Manager position to help us build a strong financial foundation for a new preventive health product we are launching. Initially, the product will be sold to organizations, groups, communities, employers, etc., who are seeking to provide cost-effective, world-class preventive health benefits to their members, employees, or citizens.

For more than 40-years 9Health has been known for its preventive health focused fairs across the state; in fact, 9Health is the country’s largest provider of nonprofit preventive health fairs. In 2020, we diversified beyond health fairs for the first time in our history. We launched a portfolio of digital health offerings to reach people year-round and to make these services more accessible to populations. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, 9Health:365 has risen to meet challenges and conducted outreach, education, testing, and dissemination of the COVID-19 vaccine throughout the Front Range during these past 20-months. This remains a pivotal part of our work for the foreseeable future.

The Special Events and Sponsorship Manager will work with the 9Health:365 Executive Team and Board of Trustees to develop fundraising events and sponsorships and will be essential for deepening existing sponsorships and establishing new ones. A campaign consultancy firm was secured in September 2021 to formulate strategy around feasibility and execution of a campaign launch. This new role will work alongside the consultancy to ensure tactical execution of the strategy to meet a multi-million-dollar revenue goal over 3-years. Compensation Range:$41,500-$45,000
