Chief Impact Officer

The Conrad Prebys Foundation is committed to improving lives and providing opportunities for all San Diegans. The Foundation seeks to address community need in San Diego through high-impact, place-based grantmaking and strategic initiatives in the visual and performing arts, higher education and youth development, healthcare, medical research, and other charitable purposes consistent with Conrad Prebys’ history of philanthropy in San Diego.

Over many decades, Conrad Prebys built a real estate empire and became one of the largest private owners of residential multi-family properties in San Diego County. During his later years, he generously dedicated his resources to the community through charities, donating over $350 million before his passing in 2016. To ensure his vision extended beyond his life, The Conrad Prebys Foundation was created to perpetuate his commitment to philanthropic endeavors in San Diego.


This is a rare and exceptional opportunity to join a growing foundation and help shape over $60M in annual grantmaking for the San Diego community by building impactful, place-based philanthropic strategies in partnership with stakeholders across the region. The Conrad Prebys Foundation has embarked on a building phase – similar to a start-up in many ways – and the Chief Impact Officer (CIO) will be instrumental in defining the Foundation’s vision and strategy for bold and varied approaches to deploying place-based philanthropic capital as well as operationalizing the organization’s ambitious programmatic objectives. The CIO is a newly created role and will be joining a lean senior leadership team alongside the CEO and CFO, working collaboratively in the planning, development, and implementation of the Foundation’s values, culture, and grantmaking philosophy and strategies.

The CIO will be the chief designer and synthesizer of impact objectives and learning strategies across program areas at the Foundation. Serving as a thought partner to and collaborator with the CEO, this position will act as a strategic generalist across the Foundation’s portfolios of work – providing program leadership, direction, design, and implementation rooted in creativity and innovation. The role brings together elements of extensive community engagement, program strategy and insight, research, impact measurement, and learning for both internal and external audiences.
