Executive Director, Green Light Fund

Posted by Green Light Fund on February 16, 2021

Since its inception in 2012 with support from the federal Social Innovation Fund, GreenLight Fund Philadelphia raised over $8 million, and directly invested $4.2 million across five social enterprises in Philadelphia. In September 2020, the site announced it raised “GreenLight Philadelphia Fund III” – a $3.5 million fund to sustain GreenLight Fund’s operations and investments in Philadelphia through 2024.

GreenLight Fund is currently seeking a dynamic, passionate, and collaborative Executive Director to lead the next phase of GreenLight Philadelphia’s growth. The Executive Director will work with a Selection Advisory Council that includes private sector entrepreneurs and investors, nonprofit leaders, philanthropic leaders, social entrepreneurs and issue experts to identify critical needs in Philadelphia and vet, select, fund and launch the highest-performing national solutions that directly fit the needs of the community.

Reporting to GreenLight Fund’s National Portfolio Director, this entrepreneurial leader will continue to build a strong, diverse coalition to support GreenLight Philadelphia and its portfolio organizations. This is a fantastic opportunity to work at the intersection of social entrepreneurship and community need, to build and support a portfolio of high performing nonprofits to confront the community’s most pressing challenges.

The Executive Director will lead autonomously in Philadelphia to deliver GreenLight’s Method of Impact, partner with peers across the country to find and spread what works, and support the national GreenLight network.
