Description


Position: President (Remote, Volunteer, Part-Time)

 

Saya Institute is seeking candidates to serve as its President.

 

This is a unique opportunity to lead a private foundation supporting crisis management, conflict resolution and peacebuilding efforts across Africa.

 

Saya Institute is a registered 501(c)(3) private foundation supporting crisis management, conflict resolution and peacebuilding efforts across Africa. Our programs are presently focused on Ethiopia, Somalia and South Sudan.

 

Saya Institute was incorporated in Kansas in 2015 and is a philanthropic initiative of Saya International Corporation.


Position Description:


Reporting to a volunteer Board of Directors, the President is charged with the leadership and day-to-day operation of the organization. We are seeking a results-oriented professional with a passion for peacebuilding across Africa who is creative, energetic, collaborative, a self-starter and a team-builder. In particular, we are seeking:

 

An experienced fundraiser

 

Your experience in professional fundraising has positioned you well to evaluate the philanthropic environment and lead teams to develop campaigns, proposals and pitches and successfully secure resources. You’re not only the kind of person who can see philanthropic opportunity, you also have the tactical skills to bring donors, funders and partners in the door and then “close the deal”.

 

A Skilled Communicator

 

You know what it means to be an ambassador for an organization, and you’re not afraid to speak, network and represent the organization wherever and whenever possible. You have demonstrated your ability to distill organizational complexity into just a few sentences and to convey complex concepts to any audience. You have an eye for good design and an ear for good copy. You know that communications and fundraising go hand-in-hand, and that in small organizations, everyone learns to do both. You’re excited about the opportunity to raise the profile of Saya Institute, expanding our reach and enabling us to achieve more than ever before.

 

An experienced leader


You know what it means to lead an organization and to report to a Board of Directors. Your experience with board governance, supporting volunteer leadership in decision-making and oversight, and your knowledge of key legislation has prepared you for this role. You’re a strong team player with demonstrated experience leading, supporting and engaging staff in a small-shop environment.

 

The Opportunity:

 

This is a unique opportunity to lead a private foundation supporting crisis management, conflict resolution and peacebuilding efforts across Africa. This is an opportunity to lead and work with a dynamic group of staff who are passionate about their roles, and to collaborate with Board Directors who are dedicated to the success of the organization.

 

Remuneration:

 

This is a remote, volunteer, part-time position without remuneration, except for administrative support, travel, and accommodation costs in relation to the President’s duties including attending Board of Directors meetings and visiting our program locations. Board meetings will be held at our offices in Washington, D.C.
