NonProfit Connection Program Director

United Way of Northern Utah Mission: Uniting people and organizations to build healthy and well-educated communities where individuals, families and neighborhoods thrive.

Title: NonProfit Connection Program Director (NPCPD)

Reports to: Director of Community Resources

Summary: United Way of Northern Utah seeks a knowledgeable, energetic, and dynamic leader who will guide United Way’s NonProfit Connection, working to generate increasingly meaningful growth and results for nonprofit organizations in Northern Utah.

The Nonprofit Connection was formed in early 2021 to support nonprofit leaders in our community. There is an unfortunate trend of high nonprofit leadership turnover, which is in part attributable to “having too much on their plate,” as they have limited professional staff to support many key functions of a highly effective nonprofit.

This position is designed to support people and systems that foster high-performing nonprofit organizations - so they can focus on what matters most - their mission. We do NOT expect you to have expertise across the key function areas, rather we are looking for someone who knows how to bring the right people and resources to the table and effectively manage them. The Director will be a part of a team and have strong support from senior management that is vested in the success of this work.

We have identified 11 Key Domains of an effective nonprofit which we strive to support nonprofits in, they are; (1) Fundraising, (2) Human Resources, (3) Information Technology, (4) Marketing and Communications, (5) Finance and Accounting, (6) Volunteer Management, (7) Leadership and Organizational Culture, (8) Outcomes and Evaluation, (9) Board Governance, (10) Legal, and (11) Diversity.

In this role you will serve as a critical thought partner in developing new initiatives, professional development offerings, and organizational support services. You will receive training and ongoing support from other members of the United Way leadership to ensure your success in this exciting role.
