Reporting to a 22-member Board of Directors, the President & CEO is responsible for a $3 million annual operating budget and will work to inspire the community to Think Big and BE BOLD to address the changing times and challenges that face Broward County.
The incoming President & CEO will inherit a strong organization with a 35-year solid track record of leadership and will work in partnership with the Board of Directors and staff to chart a bold course forward.

A $500 million call for leadership is among the largest active campaigns for a community foundation in the nation.
