The Gund Foundation seeks candidates for president

The George Gund Foundation is seeking candidates for the position of president to further its mission to advance human wellbeing through progressive, responsive, and accountable philanthropy. The position profile describes the opportunity and the qualifications, professional experiences, and personal attributes sought by the Board of Trustees. The successful candidate will succeed longtime president David Abbott, who will retire at the end of 2021 after 19 years.

All applications are being confidentially fielded by the executive search firm, Isaacson, Miller, which will help to identify, recruit, and screen potential candidates. Isaacson, Miller’s search process is built on a fundamental commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion.

Inquiries, nominations, and applications should be directed to the search firm at www.imsearch.com/Gund. Foundation trustees and staff will not be meeting with potential candidates outside of the formal search process. Applications received by the end of August will be assured full consideration, and the Foundation expects to make an appointment in November.
