The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven ("the Foundation"), one of the oldest and largest community foundations in the United States, seeks a Senior Vice President of Grantmaking and Strategy ("Senior Vice President") who will play an instrumental role in advancing the Foundation's grantmaking and community engagement activities.

As the region's largest grantmaker, the Foundation serves as a go-to resource for learning about and supporting local nonprofit and community issues, which spans a diverse twenty town region. This mission is carried out through the proactive collection and dissemination of information to inform and inspire the community knowledge, investment, and engagement that is essential in addressing the many areas of interest and need in the region.

Working in partnership with the Board of Directors, President and CEO, and senior leadership team, the incoming Senior Vice President will ensure the coordination, integration, clarity, and consistency of message across the Foundation. As a key representative and strategist for the Foundation's programs, s/he will manage the processes by which the Foundation distributes approximately $6 million annually in discretionary grants, which is a part of the total annual grant distribution of $21 million. Equally important, s/he will build on the Foundation's work to inform, engage, and inspire broader community awareness, action, and investment into the needs of this dynamic and diverse region. All of these activities will be conducted with an active eye for opportunities to infuse the appropriate level of creativity and evaluation measurements.

The selected candidate will bring the strategic leadership, creative energy, and relationship building skills necessary to be viewed as a respected thought leader across the Greater New Haven Region and beyond. Specifically, s/he will bring substantial experience (10 years or more) leading, managing, and evaluating programs in highly dynamic, mission-driven, community-focused environments. Experience in one or more program areas at the Foundation paired with the ability to recognize patterns and synthesize data and structures across diverse bodies of work, are desirable. Serving as a humble yet charismatic leader, the incoming Senior Vice President will illustrate the ability to adapt quickly to change, to facilitate strong and effective working relationships across the Foundation and community, and to nurture an environment that celebrates and supports cultural, social, and ethnic diversity.
