Richmond, Virginia

Vice President of Investments, Community Foundation for a Greater Richmond

The Organization

At the Community Foundation, we dedicate ourselves to connecting individuals and organizations to realize the full power of philanthropy. We are driven by relationships and working closely with diverse partners to fulfill the promise and potential of this great place we call home. Because, together, we do more good. Nonprofit organizations play an important role in maintaining the health and vibrancy of our region, and they share important insights into the communities and people they serve. That’s why we work in partnership with nonprofits to amplify their efforts. We also partner closely with local professional advisors to ensure a seamless experience for their clients. Not only can we help advisors fulfill their clients’ planning needs and charitable wishes, but we can provide added efficiency and share first-hand knowledge of nonprofits serving our community. At the same time, we actively collaborate with community leaders, peer funders and motivated individuals to coordinate efforts in service of common goals. By empowering and mobilizing an inclusive network of changemakers, we can solve our community’s most pressing challenges and make the Richmond region a place where everyone can thrive.


The pandemic has prompted a lot of people to reflect on their current life and career trajectories. Fahrenheit Advisors has a very unique opportunity available for someone who would like to utilize their experience in the investment strategy space to work on behalf of a “charitable bank” known as Community Foundation here in RVA. The mission of the Community Foundation is to make the Richmond region a better place through bold solutions and inspired philanthropy. Today, they manage more than 1,300 charitable funds with assets exceeding $1.3 billion and growing. This Foundation also oversees the activities of 12 other charitable foundations and organizations that have chosen to fulfill their charitable legacy in partnership with CF. If you have 7-10 years of experience in treasury/ banking/ investment services, possess exceptional interpersonal skills, but more importantly have a desire to invest your time and energy into an organization that is committed to something bigger than just the bottom line, I encourage you to consider applying to this Vice President of Investments position. Hybrid WFH schedule is provided, along with half-day Fridays for all employees at the Foundation. “Feel good feeling” available every day.

The Community Foundation has grown substantially since its inception in 1968, reflecting the vision and integrity of its leaders and the extraordinary spirit of the people of Richmond and Central Virginia. As a long-term investor in the Greater Richmond region, our overall investment strategy is to grow the community’s endowment to ensure assets are available to address community needs and opportunities in perpetuity. Our team, guided by an experienced volunteer investment committee, seeks to earn the most efficient rate of return through a variety of investment options. We manage philanthropic assets entrusted to our care according to best practices, and we hold ourselves to rigorous standards to mitigate risk and identify opportunities to add value.
