IFIP are looking for a new Executive Director

IFIP (International Funders for Indigenous People) are looking for a new Executive Director.

The International Funders for Indigenous Peoples (IFIP) is the only global donor affinity group dedicated to Indigenous Peoples worldwide. IFIP’s mission fosters Indigenous solutions and partnerships among Indigenous Peoples and funders around the globe. The organization’s strategic goal is to expand the sphere of funders and collaborative action among funders and Indigenous Peoples to support and advance issues of importance to Indigenous Peoples. With over 15 years of experience, IFIP has been a key convener of donors and foundations to advance partnerships that can improve the lives of Indigenous Peoples globally and build communities of practice among donors. Today IFIP is composed of more than 50 members and affiliates who share a commitment to building funding support for Indigenous Peoples that responds to their needs and priorities. IFIP is differentiated from other funder affinity groups by the conscious inclusion of Indigenous Peoples’ organizations along with funders. Building on this experience, the organization seeks to further expand its activities under its new Strategic Framework. The IFIP Board of Directors now seeks a strategic and committed thought leader to assume the position of Executive Director beginning in early 2017. Understanding of, and respect for, Indigenous Peoples and local communities is essential for the position. Sophisticated executive capacities are vital to deepen engagement with Indigenous organizations, donors and multilateral organizations. IFIP is a not-for-profit organization created in 1999 and currently based in San Francisco, California (USA). IFIP is led by its Executive Director and Board of Directors and is supported by a small team of staff and consultants.
