The Cambridge Community Foundation (CCF) is the city’s local giving platform — built, funded, and guided by Cambridge residents since 1916. Cambridge Community Foundation is a convener and catalyst for transformative change. As a civic leader — The Foundation offers an independent voice, convenes individuals and organizations, and commissions research to help identify priorities, set shared goals, spark innovative and effective solutions, and organize collaborations to pursue them. As a grant maker — The Foundation funds nonprofit organizations and collaborative initiatives that work to preserve Cambridge’s strengths and address its current and future challenges. The Foundation fosters the collective giving of thousands of generous donors and invests in organizations that provide social services, academic support, cultural enrichment, and economic mobility and opportunity. And as a philanthropic partner — The Foundation works with donors to help them address their charitable goals in Cambridge and beyond, and offers information, advice, and opportunities for collective impact.
CCF is seeking a Vice President of Development (VP) who is eager to help transform the “100-year-old start-up” to fulfill its potential on behalf of the community. The VP will report to and partner with the President/CEO and work closely with the Board to raise philanthropic assets and revenues that address the social challenges throughout Cambridge, while advancing the organization’s strategic direction and operational excellence. The ideal candidate is an entrepreneurial, energetic, and effective development professional who is ready to make a difference and help transform a community foundation that is dynamic, ambitious, and game-changing.
