Less than three miles from the Florida State Capitol building, and just minutes from historic Florida A&M University and Florida State University, lies the South City neighborhood in Tallahassee, Florida, a storied community with deep roots. Leading the revitalization of South City is South City Foundation (SCF), a member of the Purpose Built Communities network.

Working side by side with members of the community over the past 3 years, SCF’s goal is “to honor South City's history while securing its future.” With a new quality mixed-use housing development in progress, and a recent award of $2 million to develop the Early Learning Center, the South City neighborhood is poised for a renaissance driven by the community members themselves. The South City Foundation seeks a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) to be a catalyst for community-centered change that will benefit the residents of South City.

The CEO will thrive in an entrepreneurial environment and will be comfortable wearing many hats as the organization evolves. Fundraising, storytelling and driving community and partner engagement will be the priorities in the CEO’s first year.

The ideal candidate will be skilled in communication, relationship building and resource development, be a curious and innovative leader, and trusted as an authentic champion for the community. The CEO will report to a committed and supportive Board of Directors comprised of community leaders. The South City Foundation has a dedicated Community Engagement Coordinator on staff. The CEO will have opportunities to build the South City Foundation team as funding increases.
