Shared Chief Financial Officer

Flexible Timeline | Applications Due May 3, 2017

Beginning in 2011, Pittsburgh nonprofit organizations with similar or related missions started collaborating to share one employee who would provide a similar function for each organization as a way to share costs and to collectively gain access to a more skilled individual than they could afford working alone. This approach has worked extremely well in the functional areas of Human Resources (http://philanthropynewsdigest.org) and Financial Strategy (Environmental Finance Collaborative – http://www.post-gazette.com/business; Arts Finance Cohort – http://triblive.com; CBO Collaborative – http://neighborhoodallies.com/locations/lawrenceville-united-2016-small-simple/).

In light of this success, five nonprofit organizations with environmental education-focused elements of their respective missions and programs have come together as the Environmental Education Finance Collaborative (“EEFC”). The EEFC is a group of five organizations hiring a Shared Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”) to develop a planning process, seek funding, and secure the professional guidance to undertake capitalization planning.
