Executive Director

(Full-time, permanent position, 35 hours per week)

Comox Valley Community Foundation (CVCF) is seeking a new Executive Director to lead and manage our organization as we take the next steps towards achievement of our vision, which is to bring people and issues together to find solutions and enact positive change for our community.

As the charity dedicated to supporting other charities, CVCF works in partnership with donors to fund programs, services, and projects for the more than 200 registered charities and non-profit organizations in the Comox Valley. We are only limited by the will and imagination of our donors, and the groups and people we support in the community.

Our view of community is broad and inclusive – and we provide grants to the widest possible range of organizations and initiatives to reflect that perspective. We manage $16 million in assets on behalf of our community and since 1996, we have returned more than $5.75 million to the community in the form of grants, scholarships and bursaries to over 170 local organizations and 230 students.

We place community well-being at the heart of all that we do – and embrace the principles of trust-based philanthropy, community decision-making, impact investing, and right relations in our work. We are committed to making our community a place where everyone belongs.

If you are results-oriented, can look to the future of our community with vision and insight and build relationships across sectors and the community, and offer a minimum of five years’ senior management experience and demonstrated success as a fundraiser and grant maker, we would love to hear from you.
