Formerly known as the Association of Baltimore Area Grantmakers, Maryland Philanthropy Network was founded in 1983 to provide a forum in which philanthropic colleagues could address common problems and interests together. Our members steward $9 billion in charitable assets and distribute $1.1 billion to public charities annually, a significant majority of which is directed to benefit residents of Maryland. Today, we are a statewide membership association representing more than 110 private and community foundations, donor advised funds, giving circles, and corporations with strategic grantmaking programs. Maryland Philanthropy Network acts as an intermediary by collaborating and aligning with and on behalf of members’ impactful work. We position ourselves as a thought and sector leader in Maryland; attract local, state, national and government funding for transformational impact; and engage in public policy, system-change, and partnerships vital to the sector and our members’ work. We are a place where grant makers at all levels network and learn to practice philanthropy in service of equity and justice.  As we continue our mission to build and activate a diverse, informed, and effective network of philanthropists to inspire transformational impact throughout Maryland, we will work with Impact Search Advisors by Nonprofit HR to identify our next President and CEO.


This is an opportunity for an exceptional, collaborative, local or regional leader to further advance the mission of MPN, and its impact in the sector. The new President and CEO 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. The new leader must be a visionary leader and will guide and facilitate resource development and other initiatives to enhance and sustain the network’s financial goals.

The position requires network leadership and member engagement, deepening and building meaningful and authentic relationships within the MPN membership across the state. This includes actively networking and connecting members and partners to build the field of philanthropy in the state of Maryland by engaging national, regional, and local resources to further strengthen programs and services provided to MPN members. The President and CEO will align members around key issues for shared learning, collaborative action and policy engagement. This position will embrace, embody, and champion racial equity, diversity, and inclusion (REDI), not only to further MPN’s member engagement, but also to support the capacity development of REDI practices across the membership spectrum and to deepen the organization’s impact in the communities it serves. The President and CEO will collaborate with the Board, staff, and members to implement the organization’s strategic framework to ensure that future objectives and activities reinforce MPN’s commitment to racial equity and justice. This position is the principal liaison between MPN staff and the Board providing transparent updates as well as guidance and support to the Board and committee leadership on governance and policies.
