Joshua W. Rednik

Joshua W. Rednik is President and CEO of the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation. Josh brings to the organization nearly 20 of experience in the non-profit sector, managing organizations and developing and executing multi-million dollar fundraising campaigns. 

In his role with the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation, Josh focuses on cultivating relationships with individuals, foundations, and corporations, with the goal of raising the significant funds needed to fulfill its mission to cure diabetes. The DRIF supports the world-renowned Diabetes Research Institute at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, a recognized leader in cure-focused diabetes research. Mr. Rednik comes to the DRIF almost a year after the public launch of the DRI BioHub mini organ and the fundraising campaign that seeks to raise more than $94 million for this initiative over five years. 

Prior to his current role, Josh served for nearly six years as Executive Director of The Jewish Community Foundation (JCF) of Greater MetroWest in Whippany, NJ. During his tenure, he and his team created and implemented the JCF’s $100 million “MetroWest Tomorrow” endowment campaign, which exceeded its goal less than two years after its public launch.  His leadership of the organization also resulted in increased funding over goal for its most recent fiscal year, enhanced lay leadership and donor engagement, and decreased expenses.

Prior to becoming Executive Director of the JCF in 2008, Josh held senior leadership roles of increasing responsibility within the planned giving and endowment divisions of UJA-Federation of New York and The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington (Rockville, MD), where he began his career as Campaign Associate.

Josh graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and pursued his master’s degree in social service at Bryn Mawr College, Bryn Mawr, PA. He received an executive certificate in financial planning from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., and is a Certified Financial Planner™ professional.
