The Organization

The 360 Group, in partnership with MS&S Search, is pleased to announce our latest search: President for the Community Foundation for Southwest Washington!

As the regional force for charitable good, The Community Foundation for Southwest Washington (CFSWW) has granted over $220 million since its inception. In its effort to serve donors and invest in the communities of Clark, Cowlitz, and Skamania counties since 1984, the Foundation has attracted assets under management that now total over $345 million. Marked growth over the past decade has enabled CFSWW to address growing needs and disparities through increased donor and community engagement. It follows that its generous donors, experienced staff, and valued nonprofit partners have evolved and further honed their practices to thoughtfully assist the entire region. CFSWW is poised to seek a new President who will enthusiastically steward and build on CFSWW’s successes.

Position Overview

The Community Foundation for Southwest Washington seeks an accomplished leader who will provide dynamic, forward-thinking leadership to promote CFSWW’s goals, implement the Board-identified policy directives, cultivate charitable giving, continue to empower staff, and steward the role of CFSWW as an inclusive convener throughout the region. They will serve as the key spokesperson and face of CFSWW to its grantees, donors, civic, community and state leaders while they will support Board and staff to be visible in philanthropic activities throughout Southwest Washington. The new President will have a broad-based mix of experiences to promote philanthropy, attracting new donors and giving to increase the size and impact of CFSWW, developing and deepening durable coalitions, and continuing to advance CFSWW’s role in community leadership and advocacy.
