Philanthropy Northwest Seeks Next CEO

August 29, 2016

For the past 40 years, Philanthropy Northwest has served a diverse group of philanthropic organizations in a core six-state region (Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming) and beyond. As a learning network and membership organization — one of the nation’s 33 regional associations of grantmakers — we help philanthropists work together across geography, culture, race and wealth to improve communities in the Northwest. We support our members and partners by providing educational programming, high-quality networking opportunities, information on emerging public policy issues facing the sector, facilitation of collaborative efforts and access to the best resources available to support effective philanthropy. 

Philanthropy Northwest seeks a chief executive officer to work closely with the board, staff and key stakeholders to advance our mission, provide strategic leadership, ensure the development and delivery of innovative member programs, refine and revisit the business model and integrate various activities of the organization to create a whole greater than the sum of its parts. Identifying opportunities to position Philanthropy Northwest as a partner for funders to help realize their goals will also be important as part of ensuring a sustainable capital base for the organization. Collaborating with a wide variety of individuals and organizations while managing a very talented staff and sophisticated operation will not only be critical to the new CEO’s success, but also bring joy for the right person in realizing the organization’s values and aspirations throughout the Northwest — and nationally.
