Executive-in-Residence Program

The Council on Foundations’ Executive-in-Residence Program leverages the expertise of executive-level leaders to shape new areas of work that advance the Council’s long-term goal of supporting philanthropy to be a trusted partner in advancing the greater good.

Participants in the executive-in-residence program are embedded within the Council for six-to 12-month assignments. During this time, they work with Council staff to lay the groundwork for new bodies of work and strategic initiatives that support the organization’s 2021-2025 strategic direction
