About FADICA- Foundations and Donors Interested in Catholic Activity

We promote the growth and effectiveness of Catholic philanthropy inspired by the joy of the Gospel and the Catholic social tradition. FADICA supports its members through education, exchange, fellowship and faith, research, joint funding opportunities, and interaction with Catholic leadership.

The Opportunity

FADICA, a Catholic Philanthropy Network, seeks a Director of Program and Impact to serve as a key member of its dynamic and entrepreneurial team. FADICA supports effective philanthropy in service to a vital Catholic church and the common good, providing a symposia series, supporting member fellowship and working groups, sponsoring research, and facilitating collaborative impact initiatives.

The Director of Program and Impact will manage and coordinate the development of FADICA’s symposia and webinar programs and will lead the organization’s newly launched Impact Platform. The Director will also coordinate several member working groups focused on specific issues. FADICA’s Impact Platform is a new collaborative initiative which connects FADICA’s vibrant and spirit-filled membership to opportunities for impact in Church and society through a listening, discernment, and communications process. The Director will supervise the Associate Director for Communications who leads on communications and engagement for member programs and the Impact Platform.

FADICA members are among the most entrepreneurial, generous, and faith-driven funders, and the Director will have the opportunity to work closely with members, the FADICA team and external partners in working towards collaborative impact. The ideal candidate has leadership experience in program-related and collaborative work in philanthropy, faith-based organizations, or the nonprofit sector. The skills most critical for this position are skills for fostering collaboration among stakeholders, analytical skills, and project planning/strategy development skills.
