FOUNDING EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Are You Ready to Make Herstory?

Calling all pioneers, change-makers, and leaders who are passionate about raising the collective voices of lesbians, queer women, trans women, and non-binary people of all races and ages to share our stories, connect with each other, and raise visibility.

ABOUT THE ROLE

The Curve Foundation is hiring our Founding Executive Director. This is a powerful opportunity to be a catalyst in the formation of a groundbreaking project to create a foundation that is of, by, and for the Curve Community. The Curve Foundation will give voice to, validate, and preserve the experiences and stories of the lesbians, queer women, trans women, and non-binary people of all races and ages who make up the Curve Community.

The Vision of The Curve Foundation is to form partnerships and make grants that spur active storytelling and cross-generational dialogue around the Curve Community. We will do this by supporting journalism inspired by the tradition of Curve magazine, investing in the next generation of intersectional leaders, and bolstering existing community archives as a resource to ensure our culture and history can be known.

The Director is deeply aligned with the Foundation’s values and shares our commitment to diversity, equity, and justice. The Director is a generalist/creator with outstanding leadership skills, experience in implementing ideas and concepts, building structure, fundraising, and managing nonprofit finance. The Director leads and manages all aspects of The Curve Foundation and accomplishes its mission with input from the foundation’s founders and Advisory Council.

The Director is highly responsive, comfortable with ambiguity, and is a “doer” who moves multiple projects forward expeditiously. Key responsibilities include refining a business plan to serve the Foundation’s mission, creating and meeting programmatic goals, fundraising, communicating vision, relationship development, strategic planning, Advisory Council relations, and creating a vibrant and expressive organizational culture.
