Reporting to the CEO, the VP-SP is accountable for Anchorum's expanding portfolio of community investments and grantmaking initiatives. The VP-SP is part of Anchorum's senior management team and serves as the principal advisor on all matters related to Anchorum's program strategy, policies, grantmaking operations, and impact investing. The successful candidate will be responsible for collaborating with community partners from around the region to improve the deeply interconnected systems influencing the social determinants of health, identify strategic opportunities to invest in the success, strength, and expertise of nonprofit service providers, and launch innovative, locally informed approaches to improve the overall health status of communities across this diverse region. Leading these activities requires experience and knowledge of assessing the barriers to health and prosperity across the region and then developing relationships and tools to create innovative and community-informed solutions.

• Guide the development of overarching strategies, tactics, and evaluation metrics across Anchorum's programmatic work, and ensure the quality, credibility, and potential impact of grantee work products and materials Anchorum produces.
• Recruit, develop, and supervise a growing team of staff and networked consultants.
• Strengthen Anchorum's outreach, influence, and ongoing communications of the work of Anchorum. In collaboration with the CEO, the VP-SP will be a trusted spokesperson for Anchorum and is expected to represent the organization as required professionally.
