The Houssian Foundation was established approximately 15 years ago and has evolved from its initial focus on community based initiatives to include climate and environmental protection, gender equality and human rights as key areas of impact. With expansion of the Foundation’s reach to these global issues, the Board of Directors has set a goal of tripling its investment portfolio and evolving from a family run foundation to a professionally managed organization, with a fully mission-aligned investment strategy and a grant-making process deeply rooted in the Foundation’s key values. The Foundation is looking for an inaugural Executive Director who will lead the development and implementation of a strategy that will shape the future of the Foundation and set the organization on a path to reach its long term vision. With a genuine passion for philanthropy and a keen interest in gender equality, human rights, environmental issues, and/or community, the successful candidate will have an entrepreneurial mindset coupled with a successful track record in business or non-profit leadership.
