The Charlottesville Area Community Foundation (Community Foundation) is excited to announce several new hiring opportunities that will deepen our impact and support for local residents, grantee organizations, donors, and other regional partners. The Community Foundation seeks powerhouse candidates for the roles of Director of Advancement, Capacity Building Manager, Senior Communications Manager, and Database & Technology Manager. Hiring for these four positions will begin in May on a rolling basis and continue into the fall. For more information, please click here.

This strategic growth, along with ongoing enhancements to our grantmaking and data management, follows over three years of intentional listening to and thought partnership with the community. As a community-centered, equity forward organization, our mission is to improve the quality of life for those negatively impacted by inequitable systems across our region, so that we can be a region in which everyone can belong, participate, contribute, and thrive. We seek to use our collective resources to catalyze and support the movements that create positive and lasting change, and we know that having the right people on our team will help us fulfill our mission.

“These upcoming hires, added to our dynamic team, will help us to more effectively execute on our mission,” said President & CEO Brennan Gould. “We are excited about our continued growth and look forward to incorporating our learnings over these past years and coupling them with engaging donor programming and more flexible, participatory grantmaking practices for maximum impact.”

These four new, crucial positions support other changes the Community Foundation is undertaking in response to lessons from the pandemic and our administration of the Heal Charlottesville Fund. In addition to more responsive, flexible discretionary grantmaking coming this Fall, we recently launched our Community Advisory Committee to incorporate more voices and perspectives of those closest to the issues our region faces. In 2021, we distributed the largest grant in our history – and our first local impact investment – when we funded a regional partnership to provide affordable housing in the region. We are also currently transitioning to a more user-friendly, comprehensive database system that will better connect grant seekers and other community partners to our fundholder community.
