The Organization: The Brown County Community Foundation (BCCF) was established in 1993. The Foundation has been instrumental in improving the quality of life for the citizens of Brown County. Celebrating our 30th year in operation, BCCF continues to provide community-wide, collaborative leadership through philanthropy, mobilizing people and resources to make a positive impact.
Position Purpose: Our next Chief Executive Officer will act as a key member of the Brown County community and represent a high-profile nonprofit foundation responsible for providing strategic leadership and ensuring the long-term viability, resources, and activities of BCCF. All responsibilities shall be consistent with the Foundation’s mission, vision and values. The CEO works closely with the Board of Trustees, multiple board committees, and a team of two or three employees to achieve the goals and objectives of the organization. BCCF has an annual operating budget of approximately $350,000 and assets under management of nearly $15 million, but this role comes with expectations of significant growth, change and process improvement.
Best Fit Leader: The best fit candidate is a nimble, flexible, strategic and visionary leader who can foster innovation with a respectful understanding of Brown County’s important history and unique culture. We are seeking a highly-effective communicator who is comfortable one-on-one and with large groups, can share an impactful and compelling story in all contexts with all stakeholders, and will strive for ambitious fundraising and collaborative partnership outcomes. We seek a person of exemplary character who is reliable and dependable, conducts themselves with honesty, integrity, and respect for others, has a people-centric demeanor and operational excellence. Candidates with proven resource development and relationship-building success will be favored over unproven candidates, but we are flexible in terms of foundation or non-profit experience if comparable effectiveness can be demonstrated. Our next CEO will maintain constructive relationships with mission critical stakeholders and partners. We seek a leader who will mentor and nurture staff and volunteers to their full potential as the organization undertakes a strategic program of growth and change, while demonstrating solid judgement in terms of when to take leadership initiative and when to work closely with Board leadership. The CEO will evolve BCCF into the most respected thought leader, communicator and collaborator in Brown County.
