    Healthcare Georgia Foundation (HGF) is seeking a Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Based in Atlanta, the Foundation seeks a collaborative, mission-oriented, hands-on finance executive to serve as an executive leader of the largest healthcare foundation in Georgia.

    Established in 1999 as a private independent statewide Foundation, HGF's mission is "to enable, improve, and advance the health and well-being of all Georgians." HGF has assets of approximately $135 million with annual grantmaking of $3.8 million, and an operating budget of approximately $3M.  Since its inception, HGF has awarded over 1,100 grants totaling more than $78 million in charitable activities. In 2018, HGF began to expand into health impact investing.  This move allowed HGF to tap into a new market where the organization is able to invest in organizations statewide seeking to improve health outcomes resulting in a social and/or environmental impact while also receiving a financial return.

    Reporting directly to the President of Healthcare Georgia Foundation, the CFO will be directly responsible for all the financial and accounting operations of the Foundation. This individual must ensure best practices in fiduciary management, accountability, transparency, and internal control. As the most senior finance leader, this executive will assess the current state of the organization's finances and identify opportunities for improvements and greater efficiencies.  This leader will also oversee the Foundation's investments, working closely with the President, the Foundation's AFI committee, and investment/advisor managers.  The CFO will serve as the primary point of contact with external vendors and partners including audit firms, investment firms, and information technology vendors. The CFO will also lead and enhance HGF's efforts in strategic health impact investments. They will ensure a hands-on approach to working with partners and identifying potential long term opportunities for success. 

    The ideal candidate will have experience leading an accounting and/or finance function, as well as strong experience managing budgets and investments.  Experience working in a nonprofit, community, philanthropic, or health care organization is preferred.
