      Job Posting: Executive Director, Community Impact
      Community Impact (CI), a Bay Area non-profit organization, identifies,
      plans and manages volunteer projects in which individuals, groups and
      corporations can come together to improve our communities. Founded in
      1988, and headquartered in Mountain View, CI offers a broad array of
      opportunities to volunteer. Each year, CI works in partnership with more
      than 180 local, non-profit organizations and schools to help fill unmet
      needs. Since 1988, greater than 10,000 CI volunteers have contributed
      more than 250,000 hours of service -- time that represents millions of
      dollars of value to the community. CI is a member of the national
      CityCares network. For additional information please view CI's website
      at www.communityimpact.org.
      POSITION SUMMARY
      The role of the Executive Director is to lead CI through its next phase
      of organizational growth in partnership with a 10 member Board of
      Directors, an energetic professional staff of 6 and teams of talented,
      volunteer project leaders.
      PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITIES
      Leadership: Lead implementation of a shared vision for CI, working

      maintaining a strong, grass-roots team culture that values and
      celebrates each participant. Hire, train, manage and review a

      performance. Ensure compliance with all legal obligations.
      Community Relations and Outreach: Represent and advocate for CI, act as
      CI's primary spokesperson to potential volunteers, sponsors and
      partners, and connect CI to other related volunteer initiatives. Manage
      the public relations and perception of CI so that the broader community
      increasingly understands its value and engages with CI.
      Finance: Develop and manage an annual budget of approximately $500,000
      monitoring the financial impact of programmatic decisions and allocating
      resources judiciously.
      Fundraising: Lead fundraising efforts, maintaining excellent
      relationships with current funders and seeking out new sources of
      income. Oversee CI's most significant, annual fundraising event -- CI
      Day -- where corporations sponsor a serve-a-thon with volunteers
      completing over thirty projects on one single day.

      technologies to link people, build relationships, foster community and
      demonstrate results.
