BROOKLINE, Massachusetts – The Brookline Community Foundation (BCF) has launched the search for its new Executive Director. The new Executive Director will join BCF at a time of institutional growth as the organization continues to address the root causes of shared challenges, remove barriers to opportunity and equity in Brookline, and support racial and economic justice in the community. “This is an exciting moment for BCF,” says BCF Board Vice Chair and search committee member Gioia Perugini. “Having launched participatory grantmaking and completed a robust community engagement process to collect community members’ input into priority investment areas for ARPA funding, we are looking for a new Executive Director who is passionate about building upon this work and leading BCF with an unwavering commitment to equity in our community.”

BCF has contracted Positively Partners, a social enterprise committed to helping organizations hire, engage, retain, and develop talented professionals to achieve exceptional results for the communities served. Positively Partners’ Vice President Alissa Farber says, “We are proud to partner with BCF and hire an Executive Director committed to a more vibrant, engaged, and equitable Brookline.” An Executive Director Search Committee comprised of BCF board members and staff will work with Positively Partners throughout the summer on the search. The position was posted on 5/31/2022. Interested candidates should apply through Positively Partners’ website.

“We’re eager to begin this process and to connect with candidates. We also welcome any and all support from the Brookline community in sharing the position listing so we can reach as wide a network as possible in this search,” says Gioia Perugini.
