Juli Staiano

Chief Advancement Officer

Juli Staiano, Chief Advancement Officer, has led philanthropy at AAAS since 2008 and assumed oversight of membership—and the combined Advancement Office—in 2022. She has led and supported AAAS-wide efforts to secure millions of dollars in unrestricted and programmatic contributions annually from individuals, corporations, and foundations and is now working in partnership with a dedicated team of talented professionals to achieve a new vision for membership and philanthropy at an exciting time for AAAS.

As Director of Partnership Development at the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health from 2001-2008, she implemented a “partnership development” approach to public-private collaborations leading to several multi-million-dollar, multi-year gifts; laid the groundwork for and launched the Biomarkers Consortium, a major public-private biomedical research partnership bringing together leaders in government, industry, academia, and NGOs, which has since raised more than $70 million to improve drug development, clinical care, and regulatory decision-making; and obtained $25 million in private-sector support for the Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative, creating a governance structure that has been replicated in related initiatives around the world.  From 1997-2001, she served in various fundraising roles at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.
