Today in America, and especially in the greater Seattle and Tacoma areas, the need for resilient, healthy, and inclusive communities with quality life, affordable housing, and wealth opportunities is greater than ever. The shortage of safe, affordable homes, skilled job training, education, and quality healthcare affects everyone and everything. With the COVID-19 pandemic, many are struggling in midst of unprecedented challenges to stay in their homes amid declining neighborhoods. For forty years, LISC has supported people and places in need to achieve stability and resiliency—the very attributes everyone, and every community, requires. In 2019, LISC had its best year ever investing $1.8 billion to catalyze opportunity in hundreds of historically underserved rural and urban communities. This historic success allowed LISC to be able to pivot and offer immediate relief to people, enterprises, and communities nationally bearing the brunt of the 2020-21 pandemic's fallout.
LISC’s Executive Director role represents an exciting and distinctive opportunity to experience deep purpose and a fulfilled sense of mission in leading the growth of local programs, funding, and services that will positively impact the lives of thousands of individuals and families in Seattle (King County) and Tacoma (Pierce County). LISC and its affiliates have continuously served Washington State since 1984, providing $712 million in grants, lending, and equity investments. The Executive Director will be responsible for re-establishing LISC’s “on-the-ground” role in the Puget Sound area. Reporting to LISC’s West Region Program Vice President, the Executive Director will build, lead, and manage a talented team of community development professionals and hire a Program Officer as their first hire immediately, with an expectation to grow the team in future. National LISC has already established a strong operating base of private sector support that includes partnerships with the Bank of America Charitable Foundation, Seattle Foundation, and State Farm. This position will be based in LISC’s Seattle office, once established, and provides flexibility for working remotely as needed.
The ideal candidate must bring a passionate, enthusiastic commitment to LISC’s mission of forging resilient and inclusive communities of opportunity, and a minimum of ten years senior-level experience in community development (or economic development), real estate, capital development, community revitalization, and other related fields. Experience in shaping affordable housing and real estate projects through development or lending and growing organizational capacity would be an advantage. Additionally, proven experience in staff and office management with an ability to attract and sustain philanthropic funding will be essential.
Salary Range: $155,000-$175,000 annually

First American Capital Corporation, Inc. is an Equal Opportunity Provider & Employer
The Black AIDS Institute (BAI), the only uniquely and unapologetically Black HIV think and do tank in America, seeks its first Director of Operations to strengthen the organization’s internal management and enhance its capacity to achieve its goal of providing high-quality, direct HIV services to Black people.
The mission of BAI is to stop the AIDS epidemic in Black communities by engaging and mobilizing Black institutions and individuals to confront HIV. BAI envisions a world where all Black people are free and flourishing without HIV and AIDS, free of stigma and shame, where Black health and well-being are paramount.
Founded in 1999 by a Black gay man living with HIV, a Black gay doctor, and a Black lesbian doctor to mobilize and educate Black Americans about HIV/AIDS treatment and care, BAI dedicates itself to ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the Black community. BAI believes in complete freedom for Black people by eradicating systemic oppression to live long, healthy lives. With a foundation in advocacy and policy work, BAI works towards improving the health and wellness of Black people through research, community efforts, and clinical work.
Areas of Impact
BAI grounds its work in Black leaders and communities across the country. Recognizing that health justice is racial and social justice, BAI is deeply committed to exposing the systems and roots of oppression that marginalize Black people and exacerbate their health burden. BAI's programs and work fall across the following four segments:
• Advocacy and Mobilization: BAI facilitates The Black Treatment Advocates Network (BTAN), a national network of local chapters and stakeholders who mobilize Black communities across the country to confront HIV. BAI provides technical assistance to each BTAN chapter through content development and provision, guidance on community building and mobilization, and leadership development.
• Black-centric Healthcare: BAI and St. John’s Well Child and Family Clinic partner together to run A Clinic For Us (ACFU) in BAI’s headquarters of Los Angeles, CA. ACFU provides access to primary and specialty, HIV biomedical prevention, and care services. This includes healthcare by certified medical providers, diagnostics, referrals, and pharmaceuticals as well as dental and Integrated Behavioral Health services supported by proactive community outreach, linkage to care and essential services, HIV testing, and counseling.
• Training and Capacity Building: BAI provides trainings and capacity building assistance to healthcare organizations, community-based organizations, and health departments that serve and work with Black communities. This assistance centers on racial health disparities and the effect they have on HIV prevention and care.
• Information Dissemination: BAI develops unique content related to HIV and Black Americans in the U.S. BAI combines its annual state of AIDS reports, social media, Black media, and traditional media outlets to reduce stigma and increase awareness of how we can end HIV.
Governed by a 12-member board of directors, BAI operates with 23 full-time staff and a budget of $4.3M comprised of corporate funding, government funding, event income, and foundation grants. BAI is projected to operate with a staff of 50 and a budget of $5.6M by the end of 2021. Raniyah Copeland serves as BAI’s President & CEO after succeeding the organization’s Founder & CEO, Phill Wilson, in 2019, having previously served BAI in numerous programmatic roles since 2008.
Since 2019, BAI has:
• Doubled its budget from $2.5M to over $4M projected by the end of 2020, increasing its capacity to hire more staff and enhance operations.
• Expanded to the Southeast states by acquiring office space in Atlanta and hiring seven Southeast-based staff.
• Gained funding from the University of California as a California Research Policy Center that focuses on ‘rapid responses’ of short-term research projects designed to quickly address questions that emerge in a dynamic health policy environment. BAI’s Research Center expands the HIV policy discourse and evidence base to respond to socio-structural factors driving HIV disparities in California.
• Partnered with the COVID Vaccine Prevention Network (CoVPN) to advance efforts to respond to COVID in Black communities, an initiative that merges HIV Vaccine and Prevention Trials Networks with the Infectious Diseases Clinical Research Consortium and AIDS Clinical Trials Group.
• Appointed a 12-member all-Black Scientific Advisory Committee to advise BAI’s biomedical research programming.
• Expanded A Clinic For Us (ACFU), in partnership with St. John’s Well Child and Family Clinic in BAI’s headquarters of Los Angeles, CA. ACFU has expanded to provide access to HIV biomedical prevention and care services to over 3,000 Black, Latino, and other under-served Angelinos annually.
BAI’s strategic plan outlines the following long-term goals the organization sets out to achieve:
• High-impact prevention information and services are available and accessible to all Black Americans at risk of HIV.
• Black Americans know their HIV status.
• Black Americans living with HIV/AIDS are virally suppressed and receive care and support services in their local community.
• Black Americans understand HIV and support people living with HIV/AIDS.
• Appropriate policies are in place to support those living with HIV, and political decision-makers are actively responding to the epidemic.

The COVID crisis and the uprising for racial justice have shone national light on both the urgent work required to build a more just and vibrant society for all Americans and the potential for positive action when our communities mobilize. We have also celebrated the “heroes”, who primarily work in nonprofits delivering essential services like affordable housing, social justice advocacy, health, youth development, to the arts. Yet these nonprofits continue to rely on a flawed, inequitable funding system that often impedes their ability to make a difference. Nonprofit Finance Fund is setting out to change that. We are a nonprofit lender, consultant, and advocate with 40 years of experience committed to reforming the nonprofit funding system. We know that financial knowledge and access to appropriate lending products are power for nonprofit leaders. We are now evolving our strategy to focus on helping to shift funding and financing practices so more money flows equitably and with less restriction to community-centered organizations led by and/or serving people of color.
