Job Summary

The Miami Foundation seeks an innovative, strategic, and bold President and CEO.  For more than 50 years, The Miami Foundation has partnered with donors to improve the quality of life and nurture philanthropy in an extraordinarily dynamic and complex region. Today, with assets of more than $340 million in over 1,000 funds and annual grantmaking of more than $60 million, the Foundation is poised to play an increasingly prominent and transformational leadership role as a trusted resource and agent of change. It addresses critical regional needs through its grantmaking, informs and inspires donors and partners, and works beyond the grants to leverage its knowledge and influence through collaborations, advocacy, research, communications, and thought leadership.
