CDF hiring a strategic planning consultant to support development of a new five-year plan

The Catherine Donnelly Foundation is hiring a Strategic Planning Consultant. The consultant will support the development of a new five-year strategic plan for 2023 – 2028. This contract is project-based and will commence immediately upon reward.


CDF is a mission driven private national foundation committed to promoting social and systems change by funding high impact programs and projects across the country in our priority areas of Environment, Housing and Adult Education.  We embrace collaborative funding, community-based opportunities, deep listening, and flexible grant-making with an organizational culture that is collaborative, encouraging of learning, and deeply committed to serving the most underserved communities.


To maximize our impact, we align our investments with the causes we care about: we oversee our endowment to ensure we don’t fund the activities we work hard to eradicate, such as the burning of fossil fuels; we make traditional investments in corporations that embrace positive social change and less traditional investments in bold impact investment opportunities; and we use our position as a shareholder to encourage companies to uphold practices and policies consistent with our values and mission.


It’s a great opportunity to work closely with the Board and staff of a dynamic and progressive organization to help prioritize future goals and support innovative solutions in housing, adult education and the environment.


The deadline for submission is August 31st, 2021 at 4:30pm.
