Social Venture Partners Tampa Bay seeking Executive Director
Social Venture Partners Tampa Bay (SVPTB) was founded in January 2014 as a fund within the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay. SVPTB is affiliated with a global network now in 40 cities in nine countries, engaging over 3,500 individual philanthropists. SVPTB has grown rapidly and built a great deal of momentum, now comprising 38 partners and serving two Tampa Bay area nonprofits with their unique blend of human and financial capital.
SVP Tampa Bay has a dual mission – growing the community of informed and involved philanthropists, and developing the capacity for innovation in our nonprofits.
The SVP Partners are donors who collectively make multi-year, unrestricted gifts to carefully vetted nonprofit investees with proven potential for social change. Partners also contribute their business and professional expertise to the nonprofits, all with the goal of strengthening the nonprofit and increasing its impact. Core to this work is the opportunity for Partners to learn about social issues and strategic philanthropy so they can make the greatest impact possible with their time, talent and financial investment.
The Executive Director (ED) serves as the senior management executive, public face and spokesperson of SVPTB. The ED manages day-to-day operations to achieve the objectives in the SVPTB Business Plan and future strategic plans. The ED serves the SVP Partnership, managing the human and financial capital of the organization to make a positive impact on our investees and the clients they serve. Operating as a fund within the Community Foundation, the Executive Director is an employee of the Foundation, reporting to its CEO. The ED’s work is overseen by the SVP Advisory Committee, made up of SVP Partners.
