LaPorte, Indiana

President & CEO, Healthcare Foundation of LaPorte

The Organization: Healthcare Foundation of LaPorte

Over the past seven years, a true treasure has evolved in La Porte County, Indiana, where northwestern Indiana meets the southeastern tip of Lake Michigan: the Healthcare Foundation of La Porte, known locally as HFL.

For a foundation still in its early years, HFL has created a record of community support and engagement that many of its more mature philanthropic peers might envy.

Position Overview

HFL’s next CEO will inherit a foundation with a record of significant early impact, gratifying momentum in a number of important areas, and clarity that the most exciting—and the most demanding—work is yet to come.

HFL’s CEO must be a proven leader, an approachable manager and an active listener who embraces collaboration, community and continuous learning. While a leader invested in community-based grantmaking would hold great appeal, the committee welcomes interest from those with diverse experiences, including experiences gained in the private sector. HFL is proud of its entrepreneurial roots, and the candidate who combines a spirit of entrepreneurship with the practicalities of community-grounded work will likely prevail.
