Organizational Overview: 

Based in the community of Silverdale, Washington, Kitsap Community Foundation has embarked on a search for a ED/CPO to build on the strong financial and program base that currently exists. Kitsap Community Foundation is highly respected throughout Kitsap County for its inclusive and collaborative leadership in the nonprofit sector.

The ED/CPO works with and reports to the Foundation’s eighteen member volunteer Board of Directors. The ED/CPO is responsible for and has authority over day to day operations of the Foundation and works in concert with the board on strategic planning, financial planning and policy development. The ED/CPO works with a staff of three other dedicated team members.

The Foundation provides a means for a wide range of donors to support the full spectrum of nonprofit organizations that serve people in Kitsap and North Mason counties. The Foundation works with families, individuals, attorneys and financial planners to design philanthropic plans that support the donors’ personal situations and help ensure their gifts are used to the fullest community benefit during their lifetimes and beyond. The Foundation currently has approximately $15 million under its management for donors.

Beyond its services to donors are its programs and collaborations that actively support area nonprofits. Notable among them are the Kitsap Great Give, Kitsap Strong, , the Racial Equity and Empowerment Fund, the Women’s Giving Circle and the Kitsap Center for Nonprofit Excellence.  All of these activities are aimed at increasing services that will reach further into marginalized communities and increase the inclusiveness of nonprofit services across the spectrum of needs.


Role Responsibilities: 

The ED/CPO will play a high-profile role throughout the Foundation’s service area recognizing the Foundation’s position as a major funder of nonprofits in the region. Reporting to the 16-member board of directors, the ED/CPO will have overall strategic and operational responsibility for the Foundation’s community presence, donor relations, collaborations and relations with other nonprofits, and mission achievement. It is expected that the ED/CPO will actively participate in community activities and organizations.


Candidate Qualifications: 

The ideal candidate will have a BA or better with 7+ years of progressively more responsible senior leadership experience in a nonprofit organization. Strong relationship skills, financial acumen, demonstrated commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion and the ability to lead and work in a small team is required.
