Taproot Foundation



Chief Executive

Officer



Remote



Salary: $210,000-$230,000



 





BACKGROUND





 



The

Organization



Since 2001, Taproot Foundation

has been a leader in the pro bono movement, connecting nonprofits, companies,

and skilled volunteers to create social change. We believe that everyone has

the right to access the skills and resources they need to thrive, and we are

committed to building a more just and equitable society.



 



Pro bono service is a movement

that galvanizes people who see not just a challenge in their communities, but a

solution. The movement is fueled by the nonprofit professionals who refuse to

be held back by their lack of resources, and equally by the companies and

corporate professionals who show up with their hands raised, ready to work

alongside their community partners to make those ideas a reality.



 



Since 2001, The Taproot

Foundation has given shape and force to this movement—mobilizing thousands of

service engagements and generating over $160 million in pro bono work since its

inception. Going forward, we believe the welfare of our communities requires

even greater access to pro bono services.



 



Operating across the US,

Taproot operates through both in-person engagements and through a robust

digital solution called Taproot Plus. The organization has an annual budget of

$5.9M and over 40 staff.

The

Position



Taproot Foundation is looking

for a visionary leader who is both strategic and inspirational to join our team

as CEO. You will be responsible for developing our long-term vision and goals,

building relationships with key stakeholders, and overseeing all aspects of our

organization.  You will also be a

champion for diversity, equity, and inclusion, fostering a culture of

belonging.



 



We are looking for a leader who

has personal experience in pro bono engagement, is ready to lead an

organization with an inclusion-first mindset, and who brings prior executive

leadership, management, and organizational development experience along with relationships

that can be leveraged for driving new revenue opportunities, fundraising and

pro bono partnerships.



 





 



 



 



 



 



 



 



ROLE OVERVIEW





 



Thought Leadership:



Develop

an innovative and sound vision for Taproot’s future that resets the bar in pro

bono and re-establishes Taproot's role as the first mover in the sector. This

requires the ability to be visionary and inspiring and translating that vision

into programmatic and/organizational changes.



 



Movement Building:



Inspiring

teams, leaders, and supporters across sectors, disciplines, and industries to

establish pro bono as a mainstream facet of our society and culture. This

requires a passion for pro bono work and a deep understanding of the pro bono

landscape as well as exceptional communications, advocacy, and coalition

building.



 



Fundraising and Relationship-Building:



Implement

and support a comprehensive revenue plan that reflects a realistic and

sustainable blend of earned revenue, grants, sponsorships, individual giving,

and fee-for-service. This will require cultivating strong and trusting

relationships across funder types, as well as comfort making asks and closing

deals in partnership with the external relations team.



 



Leadership and Talent Development:



Redefine

the culture of Taproot, to amplify inclusion and belonging and establish

programs, processes, and talent practices to prioritize DEI in all aspects of

the organization’s people practices. This individual must build strong,

collaborative, and mentoring relationships at all levels of the organization,

fostering a culture of belonging, accountability, integrity, and continuous

improvement. This requires ensuring everyone understands and feels connected to

Taproot's vision, knows how their work contributes to evolving priorities, and

understands the rationale for important decisions.



 



Business Model Optimization:



Lead

the further alignment between delivery model, funding model, and market (and

movement) demands. This requires effective bandwidth planning and financial

acumen, as well as comfort in leveraging technology to support Taproot’s vision

and mission.
