ABOUT THE POSITION
A Statewide Philanthropy Lead manages a focus area within Caring for Colorado’s statewide philanthropy program, which includes Healthy Beginnings, Healthy Youth and Strong and Resilient Families, to support the foundation’s purpose of creating equity in health, well-being and opportunity for Colorado’s children and families.
The work of a Statewide Philanthropy Lead includes overseeing focus area grantmaking (responsive, cultivated, directed), engaging an advisory group, providing subject matter expertise related to the focus area, engaging with community partners and experts in the field, influencing systems and policies to achieve equity, being responsive to community priorities and generating approaches that enhance CFC’s goals related to the focus area (e.g., cohorts, technical assistance, organizational capacity, etc.). The Philanthropy Lead is the primary liaison with grant seekers, grantees, community organizations and community leaders, and as such, the position is engaged and highly visible in the community. The Statewide Philanthropy Lead is expected to develop and maintain a variety of relationships in the community and with partner organizations, and a knowledge base of current trends in promoting and improving health and well-being for children and families in the Colorado community at-large.
Statewide Philanthropy Leads work with autonomy and in partnership with other Leads and the Vice President of Philanthropy to ensure clear and strategic philanthropic priorities for Caring for Colorado.
Caring for Colorado currently has openings for three Statewide Philanthropy Leads as we are forming a new team to guide the statewide program. Across the team, we seek to hire individuals with skills and knowledge in behavioral health and well-being, youth engagement, early childhood, community health, the nonprofit sector and family development and a deep commitment to equity and inclusion and the foundation’s guiding principles.
