Position: President
Organization: Philanthropy New York
Location: New York, NY


Philanthropy New York (PNY) is a trusted community of 280+ grantmaking organizations in the greater New York City region that develops forward-thinking guidance and programming to address the unique challenges of philanthropy and convenes funders to strengthen ties across the sector. PNY brings together funders from within and across sectors to form networks, develop and share knowledge, and nurture crucial skills to make the work of each grantmaker – and the sector as a whole – more meaningful and more effective.

The Opportunity

Philanthropy New York is looking for an exceptional President to lead the organization to achieve even greater levels of service to the philanthropic community. This is an opportunity for a visionary leader to build upon PNY’s values and long-standing track record of excellence to lead the organization and its membership into the future. Given the current moment’s attention and scrutiny on the field of philanthropy as a prime lever, the next chapter for PNY can be expected to bring unique opportunities for advocacy, innovation, and collaboration. The incoming President will work closely with the Board of Directors and lead a highly skilled team to balance the organization’s long-term strategy and day-to-day operations.
