SVCF has engaged donors, corporations, government and community partners in efforts to make the Silicon Valley region and the world a better place. Under CEO Nicole Taylor’s new leadership, the organization returns to its community foundation roots - focusing its resources on communicating and collaborating with local leaders and helping philanthropists who work with the foundation to be their most effective at accomplishing their charitable giving and community investment goals. She has begun her tenure by focusing on the community foundation’s core work as a solid partner to philanthropists and local community organizations, and working with staff to develop ways to better connect donors and communities and bring creative ideas and solutions front and center. Based in Mountain View, California, SVCF partners with families, individuals and corporations to manage and facilitate their philanthropy by connecting donors to communities’ most pressing needs.</div><div>SVCF works to improve people’s lives in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties, and partners with donors, companies and other foundations to address regional concerns that affect local communities. Despite the area’s great wealth, residents are challenged by so much – dearth of affordable housing and accessible transit, financial instability and the precarious safety and security of immigrant residents, regional planning on these issues, among other issues. The community foundation addresses these and other challenges, including early education and empowering community voices to effect change.</div><div>SVCF works closely with donors to understand their philanthropic goals and the best ways to accomplish them. From accepting complex assets and establishing giving vehicles, to facilitating grantmaking and other types of investments, SVCF is committed to ensuring donors make the impact they seek.</div><div>SVCF partners with community and government leaders to address public policy issues, advance the best ideas and direct its resources swiftly and strategically toward critical issues. The foundation serves as a resource for nonprofit, civic, government and philanthropic organizations.</div><div>There are several ways SVCF contributes, including:</div><div>·<span style="font-size: 7pt">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span>Research: commissioning research to identify emerging issues, monitor trends and provide analysis</div><div>·<span style="font-size: 7pt">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span>Public forums: bringing people together to engage in discussion and problem-solving</div><div>·<span style="font-size: 7pt">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span>&nbsp;Advocacy: taking positions on critical issues and advocate for policy outcomes</div><div>·<span style="font-size: 7pt">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span>Initiatives: launching initiatives and special projects, partnering with other foundations, corporations, nonprofits, donors and government agencies on topics or issues of regional importance</div><div>The new leadership team, including new additions, is building on the good work of SVCF staff to bolster organizational culture, and of the board of directors to improve its governance. In a 2018 initiative, staff identified its core values as courage, collaboration, inclusion, respect and accountability – and these form the bedrock of SVCF’s approach to working internally, partnering with donors and collaborating to improve communities.</div><div>We invite you to learn more about the Silicon Valley Community Foundation at <a href="https://www.siliconvalleycf.org/" class="postings-link">https://www.siliconvalleycf.org</a>.&nbsp;</div> value:

Through a national network of trusted local agencies (RAR Affiliates), parents learn researched-based book sharing practices. Each week children are excited to bring home a different bright red bag filled with high-quality, multicultural books and ask a caring loved one to spend time sharing books with them. Families are connected to their local libraries after the program to continue the habit of borrowing and sharing books. RAR National operates as a social enterprise, curating high-quality, engaging, and relevant book collections and selling them to affiliates across the country for use in their on-the-ground program. Through its social enterprise, RAR National covers over 75% of its annual budget with unrestricted revenue.</span></div><div><span style="font-size: 10pt">&nbsp;</span></div><div><span style="font-size: 10pt">RAR operates in over 2,900 locations nationally, has reached more than 1.6 million children and more than over 15 million books in rotation. Since 1999, RAR’s model has been validated by 39 independent evaluations. The Clinton Foundation’s Too Small to Fail Initiative, The White House’s Office of Hispanic Education, and The White House’s My Brother’s Keeper Initiative have identified the model as a national best practice. In 2012, the U.S. Department of Education awarded the organization a prestigious Innovative Approach to Literacy Award and in 2014 identified RAR as a national model for its alignment with the recently adopted&nbsp;</span><i style="font-size: 10pt">Dual Capacity Family Engagement Framework</i><span style="font-size: 10pt">. RAR also works with many publishers and vendors to produce training materials and book bag kits tailored to a variety of ages, cultures, and languages. Indeed, </span></div><div><span style="font-size: 10pt">&nbsp;</span></div><div><span style="font-size: 10pt">RAR has its headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area and also operates an East Coast office near Baltimore, Maryland. Raising A Reader is a supporting organization of the Silicon Valley Community Foundation.</span></div><div><b style="font-size: 10pt">&nbsp;</b></div><div><b style="font-size: 10pt">PURPOSE AND SCOPE</b></div><div><span style="font-size: 10pt">&nbsp;</span></div><div><span style="font-size: 10pt">The Senior Vice President, Programs &amp; Partnerships (SVP) is a newly created, pivotal role as Raising A Reader launches a multi-year strategic plan which envisions a 40% increase in children reached; a renewed and increased focus on demonstrating impact on Kindergarten readiness; a re-imagined, best-in-class support model for 300+ affiliates nationwide; and national partnerships that deepen local impact and help RAR reach thousands of new children annually. The SVP will oversee each of these areas of impact, supporting and building a high-performing team of ~10 individuals that collectively encompass replication and expansion services (including sales), programmatic advising and support to over 300 RAR program coordinators, impact measurement, and partnership development. </span></div><div><span style="font-size: 10pt">&nbsp;</span></div><div><span style="font-size: 10pt">The SVP will have a critical role in creating a refined vision for each of RAR’s strategic pillars, then develop and steward the implementation plan. Moreover, the SVP will serve as a thought partner to the CEO and board of directors as they look to new impact opportunities in the coming years; this includes but is not limited to reconceptualizing the social enterprise in ways that would provide new impact and revenue opportunities for the network. </span></div><div><span style="font-size: 10pt">&nbsp;</span></div><div><span style="font-size: 10pt">Reporting to the President and CEO, the SVP is a member of the Executive Team. The ideal SVP thrives in ambiguity and can shape and build a high-performing, nimble team that explores and learns from new directions while also strengthening and deepening an evidence-based, national program. The SVP will learn from and advocate for local affiliate leaders—the lifeblood of RAR’s impact—and share lessons and successes nationally with partners and other stakeholders. In short, the SVP helps see what is possible for Raising A Reader and leads a team of national staff and local leaders in realizing these possibilities for hundreds of thousands of children and families across the US.</span></div><div><span style="font-size: 10pt">&nbsp;</span></div><div><b style="font-size: 10pt">DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES</b></div><div><span style="font-size: 10pt">&nbsp;</span></div><div><i style="font-size: 10pt"><b>Head up Raising A Reader’s National Programs and Affiliate Footprint; motivate and inspire a wide range of leaders from diverse stakeholders</b></i></div><div><span style="font-size: 10pt">·</span><span style="font-size: 7pt">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span><span style="font-size: 10pt">Develop a high-performing, highly accountable team of ~10 individuals supporting prospective and current affiliates with sales, program implementation and impact, and partnerships development.</span></div><div><span style="font-size: 10pt">·</span><span style="font-size: 7pt">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span><span style="font-size: 10pt">Oversee the development and implementation of strategies to ensure earned revenue goals for existing and new affiliates, as outlined in the strategic plan.</span></div><div><span style="font-size: 10pt">·</span><span style="font-size: 7pt">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span><span style="font-size: 10pt">Develop and lead the management and engagement of our network of 300+ Raising A Reader Coordinators; this could extend to accreditation or continuing education offerings. &nbsp;</span></div><div><span style="font-size: 10pt">·</span><span style="font-size: 7pt">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span><span style="font-size: 10pt">Identify opportunities to get Raising A Reader out into the field to meet with parents, kids, and prospective and current affiliate leaders; serve as sounding board for groups of affiliate leaders</span></div><div><span style="font-size: 10pt">·</span><span style="font-size: 7pt">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span><span style="font-size: 10pt">Elevate RAR’s national affiliate advisory board, updating its charter, identifying membership criteria, and engaging its members; identify opportunities for members to connect with other affiliates in their regions to share information and gain input. </span></div><div><span style="font-size: 10pt">·</span><span style="font-size: 7pt">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span><span style="font-size: 10pt">Engage with a growing national board of directors, present to and manage committee interactions focused on programmatic and partnership work.
