Recruiting exceptional leaders for mission-driven organizations.

President Pittsburgh, PA

The Heinz Endowments [the Endowments], a private family foundation based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, seeks a President. For decades, the Heinz family and its philanthropies have worked to support the health and well-being of the greater Pittsburgh region and to promote innovation, fairness, and social, economic, and environmental sustainability. In doing so, they have had a profound impact on the region and helped to shape the trajectory of Pittsburgh itself. Today, with more than $2.3B in endowed assets, the Endowments focuses its grantmaking principally on organizations and programs in southwestern Pennsylvania. It strives to use the region as a laboratory to develop solutions to complex societal problems that manifest locally but are national and global in scope.

The President reports to a 15-member Board composed of both family and community members, and oversees a staff of 33 FTEs, an annual administrative budget of $15.8M, and an annual grantmaking budget of more than $100M.

As a visible and influential community leader, the President represents both the foundation itself and the longstanding values and commitments of the Heinz family. The role calls for outstanding skills in communication and collaboration, a sophisticated understanding of public policy, a commitment to continuous learning and critical reflection, and a track record of successful team leadership. Breadth of experience is preferred over a narrow focus within one professional arena.

All inquiries, nominations, and applications will be held in strict confidence and should be submitted via this webpage.
