Spokane, WA

Chief Executive Officer, Empire Health Foundation

The Organization

Empire Health Foundation, a private health conversion foundation formed in 2008, takes a bold and innovative approach to investing in ideas and organizations that improve access, education, research, and policy to transform the health of communities in eastern Washington. With philanthropic assets totaling approximately $76 million, the recent addition of $20M designated as a 501c(4), and a talented team of 17, EHF’s investments go beyond traditional grantmaking to leverage innovative public-private collaborations in its commitment to measurable health improvements in the areas of aging, Native American health, childhood obesity prevention, and family resiliency.

Position Overview

EHF believes strongly that solving today’s toughest social problems relies on much more than just writing a check. Through partnerships with community leaders and nonprofit organizations, EHF seeks to move the dial measurably and sustainably on health outcomes, an innovative approach known as “Philanthropy 3.0.” In contrast to traditional reactive grantmaking and top-down theory-of-change models, Philanthropy 3.0 is adaptive and collaborative, leverages partnerships, and is accountable for results. Following the successful tenure of founding CEO Antony Chiang, Empire Health Foundation now invites applications and nominations for its next Chief Executive Officer (CEO) to build on the strong existing foundation and inspirational track record of cutting-edge partnerships and bold initiatives to advance health in the region. The new CEO will chart the next era that focuses on community engagement and alignment through shared vision and collaborative strategies, the integration and maturation of initiatives incubated by EHF, continued exploration of entrepreneurial opportunities, and attention to staff development and organizational infrastructure to move EHF to a new level of impact in the coming decade.

The new CEO will be a values-centered leader with a passion for advancing the health and well-being of rural and underserved populations. They will bring a sophisticated and innovative approach to leveraging philanthropic dollars for greater impact and investment. The CEO will be a natural relationship builder who integrates community input into initiatives and builds strong partnerships with a diverse array of stakeholders for shared impact. They will be a nurturing and collaborative manager who inspires, coaches, and leads teams internally and externally that support a shared vision and collective investment in the work. This is an exciting opportunity to build on a strong foundation in partnership with a deeply engaged board and staff to chart the next era of innovation and impact on behalf of communities across eastern Washington.
