Every year, we partner with 15-20 local boards of small- to mid-sized nonprofits to recruit and hire capable new staff leaders.
By design, Charitable Advisors focuses on attracting local candidates for local jobs, so our pricing model makes us a viable and affordable option for smaller organizations doing a search. Our fee structure is typically 1/3 – 1/2 the budget of a full-service executive search firm for a national search.
We have successfully conducted more than 80 ED/CEO searches ranging from a few staff to 500 and budgets from a few hundred thousand to $20 mil +.
How to prepare for a nonprofit ED search
Charitable Advisors helps you avoid common frustrations:
- A small or unqualified candidate pool
- Busy board members who don’t have time to recruit and screen candidates
- Concerns from funders, donors, and staff about a timely transition process
- Navigating the on-going choices and questions of a search process – complexity we have navigated dozens of times
