Chief Executive Officer - West Vancouver Foundation

West Vancouver, BC

Job Description

The West Vancouver Foundation (WVF) has been committed to a vibrant, healthy, caring community since 1979. By connecting the generosity and aspirations of donors with the people and organizations that want to make a change, the Foundation works to strengthen the community for now and well into the future.

Due to the retirement of a successful CEO who, along with her team, has increased the profile and impact of the organization and increased funds under management, an opportunity exists for a successful and thoughtful leader to steward the organization in this next phase of its evolution.

The Foundation's next CEO will bring a strong focus in terms of continuing to grow the assets with which to impact the community and ensure that related resources go where they are most effectively deployed. Importantly, as part of this work, the CEO will build on existing relationships and engage new voices and decision-makers in the work of fortifying the resilience and strengths of the community. The new CEO has a unique opportunity to ensure, as part of this next chapter, that the practices of the Foundation create more meaningful space for marginalized groups.

West Vancouver Foundation's next CEO will have an opportunity to bring strategic vision, progressive practices, and innovation to an organization with a cohesive and supportive policy Board, a proud past, a strong reputation, and an even brighter future.

Leading a small and capable team who largely works out of the Foundation office, this is a rare opportunity to impact the community in such a hands-on and material way. In keeping with the practices of the Foundation, flexible work arrangements can be accommodated.
