The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida (“TCF”; or “The Community Foundation”) is the oldest and largest community foundation in Florida. Since 1964, TCF has had an unparalleled reputation for stimulating philanthropy and helping donors achieve their individual philanthropic goals, while supporting the citizens of Northeast Florida through a range of charitable and civic activities made possible by those gifts.


The Community Foundation serves the donors and residents of six counties in Northeast Florida—including two of the state’s most affluent and one of the state’s most financially challenged. The organization’s mission is represented by a range of charitable and civic activities that have advanced the area and moved the community forward. Since its inception, more than $640 million in grants have been awarded by TCF to nonprofit organizations, the vast majority of which are in Northeast Florida.


The incoming President will inherit a strong organization that is poised to enter a new era of activity and engagement with the communities and citizens of Duval, St. Johns, Nassau, Baker, Clay, and Putnam counties. The areas served are fast-growing, increasingly culturally diverse with ever increasing needs. By continuing to grow philanthropic assets, specifically permanent and discretionary assets, The Community Foundation will continue its position as a visible, proactive catalyst for solutions through the effective use of various forms of capital.


The Community Foundation seeks a leader who is passionate about the donors and residents of Northeast Florida. This dynamic leader will inspire stakeholders, community leaders, partners, donors, Board, and staff to work collaboratively to achieve the vision of Northeast Florida as a place where everyone can prosper and reach their full potential. This individual is an effective leader who fosters vibrant teamwork, pursues quality, supports equity and diversity, and engenders mutual respect.


This is a high-energy position for a dynamic, visionary leader and experienced manager who is excited about the potential of the nonprofit sector to improve the quality of life and outcomes for the Northeast Florida region.

They have experience leading and directing complex organizations with varied internal and diverse external constituencies.
