F.Y. 23 Annual Report

Message from Weingart Foundation Board Chair, Monica Lozano

As chair of the Board of the Weingart Foundation, I’d like to use this opportunity to update you on the search process for the next President and C.E.O.of the Weingart Foundation. As we’ve shared, the Board is committed to conducting a search process that is transparent and inclusive. For that reason, we retained Koya Partners’ Managing Director, Michelle Bonoan, to lead the search on our behalf.

We asked Koya Partners to gather input from key stakeholders, and to use this input to inform the Candidate Profile including key attributes and experiences, and to seek perspective on Weingart’s role in philanthropy.

Koya spent the last few months actively listening on our behalf. In addition to hearing from board and staff, they solicited comments from grantee partners, and community and philanthropy leaders inviting them to share their input and feedback related to the ideal C.E.O. profile and their perspective on Weingart. The list of interviewees was suggested primarily by staff and represented a broad range of organizations and individuals. They were given the opportunity to share their feedback through a questionnaire and/or directly with Michele through one-on-one conversations.

What we heard was a consistent emphasis on continuing our commitment as a racial justice funder, our approach to responsive grantmaking and power-building, and to maintaining genuine and deep ties to community.

We feel that the input is fully represented in the position profile. Find all the information about the position and how to submit a letter of interest here.

Koya Partners has been exclusively retained for this engagement and we ask that you express interest by filling out our Talent Profile or emailing the search team directly at Weingart_CEO@koyapartners.com. All inquiries and discussions are strictly confidential. The deadline for submissions is 04/08/2024.

This is an exciting and pivotal time as we embark on the process to bring in the next President and C.E.O. of the Weingart Foundation, someone who will lead us with integrity, conviction, and unwavering passion for this work.

On behalf of the board, thank you for your interest and your partnership.

Sincerely,

Monica Lozano
Weingart Board Chair
