• You are curious and ask questions; you thrive in an environment that encourages diversity of opinion

• You have the highest level of personal integrity and commitment to excellence

Key Responsibilities:

Seattle, WA

Chief Financial Operating Officer, Seattle Foundation

Who Are We?

THE HEART AND SCIENCE OF PHILANTHROPY

The Greater Seattle region is changing and growing, and so is Seattle Foundation. “The heart and science of philanthropy” is the intersection of philanthropic passion and data-driven solutions to create lasting change. As the community’s foundation, our mission is to ignite powerful and rewarding philanthropy to make Greater Seattle a stronger, more vibrant community for all. We work with more than 1,200 individuals, families, and corporations to strategically invest their philanthropic resources in ways that inspire continued giving to the community. We also partner with philanthropic institutions, government agencies, community organizations, and businesses to catalyze positive change in our community across a range of issues.

Our organizational culture is one of engaged teamwork, where we support one another in reaching our collective and individual goals while constantly learning along the way. Our office is located in the downtown core of Seattle; however, our reach is much broader than that – we focus on Greater Seattle and the Eastside and also support donor interests across the country and around the globe. We seek individuals to join our 60+ (and growing!) team who are committed to our vision of a stronger, more vibrant community for all, collaboratively finding solutions, continually learning, and going the extra mile in service of our philanthropic partners and the broader community. We are in the midst of an exciting evolution in our work.

Over the past several years, we have been evolving to become a more active regional civic leader committed to community impact. While the Seattle region is undergoing major economic growth, systemic failures across sectors continue to leave Black, Indigenous, and Communities of Color behind, placing the Seattle region, at risk. We plan to continue our evolution by articulating an exciting path for philanthropy in a new, ambitious Blueprint for Impact, embarking on a unified, regional vision to engage a wide range of stakeholders on an approach to addressing racial and economic inequities. Debuting in 2021, the Blueprint for Impact will take shape in three core areas:  a just democracy, equitable economy, and resilient environment. Enlisting and engaging our philanthropic partners is of the upmost importance if we are going to be able to meet this moment with the level of philanthropic investment necessary to achieve our mission and vision.

More information about Seattle Foundation can be found at www.seattlefoundation.org and in our most recent Social Impact Report.

Position Overview

The Chief Financial Operating Officer (CFOO) will have an exciting and rewarding opportunity to help build Seattle Foundation’s next phase of transformative growth and impact.
