The California Bar Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization affiliated with the State Bar of California. Dedicated to building a better justice system for all Californians, we champion full and equal access to the justice system, invest in the next generation of California's lawyers, educate Californians about their rights and responsibilities under the law, and promote philanthropy throughout the legal community. We are funded primarily through the voluntary donations of California lawyers, law firms, and other supporters, and we award grants to California organizations conducting innovative law-related projects and scholarships to outstanding California law students headed for careers in public interest law or who come from communities under-represented in the membership of the State Bar. The Foundation is at an exciting point in its development, with an engaged Board of Directors and rich opportunities for enhanced fundraising, new partnerships with the State Bar, and programmatic growth.
The Foundation seeks an experienced, collaborative, and highly motivated Executive Director to lead the organization in its next phase of development. Reporting directly to the Board of Directors and managing a small staff, the Executive Director will have primary responsibility for all management functions, including strategic planning, fund development, financial management, program strategy and implementation, board support and administration, stakeholder relations and communications, and organizational administration. This position requires exceptional drive and passion for the Foundation's mission, significant capacity for management, broad understanding of the California legal community, and the ability to direct the day-to-day operations of a small yet dynamic organization. This is a full-time position, based in San Francisco, and requires some travel (mainly within California). The Executive Director is a non-voting member of the Foundation's Board of Directors.
