LOCATION:

Pleasant Hill, California

THE POSITION:

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

White Pony Express is a nonprofit public benefit corporation, tax exempt under IRC section 501(c)(3)

Mission: To help end hunger and poverty in our communities by using the abundance all around us to help those of us in need

Goals: To uplift lives and provide opportunities for selfless service

__

_ _

ORGANIZATION BACKGROUND:

The new Executive Director of White Pony Express (WPE) will have the opportunity for deeply meaningful community service and to help an incredibly successful startup to create an organizational structure for a mature nonprofit. Join our dedicated Board, able staff, committed volunteers, and generous donors – all devoted to assisting growing numbers of our most vulnerable citizens.

The mission and core business. The stated mission of WPE is: “to help eliminate hunger and poverty in our communities by delivering the abundance surrounding us to those of us in need." WPE does this by distributing high-quality food through the Food Rescue Program; clothing, children's books and toys, free of cost through White Pony General Store, and through White Pony Inn, a smaller program that provides one-on-one advocacy for people without shelter or in threat of losing housing. Headquartered in Pleasant Hill, California, WPE concentrates its services in Contra Costa County (but responded to the Campfire Disaster in Butte County through Food Rescue, continued to work with local agencies to build their own local model and replicated a White Pony General Store pop-up Boutique event last summer in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina). A surprising number of Californians are "food insecure", more than half are children and seniors; most of these people must choose between food and clothing, utilities, housing, transportation and medical care - they are below the radar, scrimping to allocate inadequate resources among basic needs. To those served, the importance of WPE cannot be overstated.

Dr. Carol Weyland Conner, spiritual director of Sufism Reoriented, founded WPE in 2013 when she learned that in one of the richest counties in California, hundreds of thousands were going hungry while food retailers throughout the county threw away untold tons of perfectly good food every day. She asked a few of her students to create a program to get this abundance to those who needed it. In 2014, WPE became a non-affiliated 501(c)3 organization. Today WPE volunteers, staff, and board includes people from throughout the broader community. Dr. Conner’s vision has contributed immeasurably to the success and esteem of the organization in the community. Her continued interest in its success and resulting periodic recommendations to White Pony Express will be given priority for evaluation by the decision-making bodies of the organization. Dr. Conner has stated her clear support for WPE to function as a fully integrated, community-based organization.

WPE was founded 6 years ago with no assets or physical location and an $800 formation budget. WPE has grown rapidly in response to community need, enthusiastic acceptance, and its flexible model of lovingly providing high quality food and new or like-new clothing through partnering with established organizations dedicated to helping those in need. In that short span, WPE has experienced skyrocketing growth, delivering 9.5 million pounds of high-quality fresh food and distributing 500,000 items of quality clothing. Currently, the overall budget, including the value of all donated goods and volunteered administrative services exceeds $8 million; exclusive of in-kind contributions, cash contributions of about $2.3 million are projected. More than 85 community organizations partner with WPE to create the distribution network that establishes WPE’s presence throughout Contra Costa County. WPE now leases two distribution centers aggregating 12,000 square feet, has a net worth of $1,000,000, 17 staff, and over 400 dedicated volunteers.

White Pony Express is at an inflection point. Seasoned candidates for the position of Executive Director will understand that the institutional transition from all-volunteer to partially volunteer to mostly staffed with employees to a full-blown social service organization with professionals as staff and volunteers as board members, advisors, and supplemental workforce can be challenging. But the current staff and volunteers are of one voice: for WPE to thrive, the organization must find the human capital and financial means to create a long-term management structure less dependent on volunteer leadership. The WPE Board is currently fully engaged in a facilitated board development process to move forward toward a mature, diverse board with no operational duties.

The ideal candidate for this position will understand the challenges of helping to lead this booming nonprofit organization at an inflection point -- and will relish the leadership opportunity that this transition offers. While learning the organization and the complex system it supports, the Executive Director will be assessing and supporting the Board in its current highly-active Board-development initiative. The Executive Director will be building trusting relationships with generous current and future donors, understanding that today’s WPE revenues are entirely dependent upon successful charitable giving, and that in building the organization to replace volunteer administrators with paid staff will incur additional expenses to be underwritten by dedicated donors. The Executive Director will be a valued partner with the 85+ cohort of community-based organizations with which WPE partners. The Executive Director will be leading collaborative units of employees and volunteers to perpetuate and augment current services and will lead various teams to generate the resources to expand staffing, volunteering, and service provision. The Executive Director will be the focal facilitator of organizational development as functions crystallize and boundaries that ensure organizational health are established – all in an organization that values collaborative decision-making in its working environment. Success as an Executive Director in such an organizational transition can cap a career!

REPORTING

RELATIONSHIPS:

The Executive Director reports to the Board of Directors. Current direct reports to the Executive Director include the Chief Financial Officer, the Director of Food Rescue, Director of White Pony General Store, and Director of Strategic Partnerships. Currently, the CFO is a volunteer position, who is also a member of the Board, has dotted-line reporting relationship to the Board, and will be transitioning away from that dotted-line relationship toward a governing board model of operations as WPE adapts to the employment of a full-time professional executive director and paid financial management staff.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

The Executive Director is responsible for the management, facilitation and operation of all programs and services provided by WPE, for all staff and volunteers, and for implementing all policy decisions of the governing Board. The Executive Director is the principal fundraiser for WPE, mobilizing Board, staff, and community to maintain a healthy financial base for services. The Executive Director represents the organization to the community, is a highly visible advocate for services to the disadvantaged, and promotes close working relationships with all external stakeholders, decision-leaders, and collaborating organizations.

Specifically, the Executive Director:

· Represents the guiding principle, vision and values of WPE, brings inspired passion to the everyday work of service to others, inspires Board, volunteers, and staff to do their best to meet the changing demand of mission-appropriate opportunities and in every way brings exemplary and visionary leadership to the organization.

· Is a tireless, charismatic fundraiser, able to inspire and attract from generous donors the in-kind and monetary support that ensures WPE’s financial health.

· Understands the emotional stresses of a nonprofit organization in transition from all-volunteer to staffed/professional/volunteer, and brings the maturity, sensibility, durability and centeredness to the leadership role that guiding the organization from adolescence to adulthood will require. Success in this sensitive leadership role is essential if WPE is to endure.

· Ensures that, in partnership with the governing Board, the mission and vision of WPE are carried out effectively, efficiently, consistently, and collaboratively. Demonstrates a high level of business acumen, assists with budgets, and monitors cash flow, oversees the management and investment of assets, maintains internal controls and financial discipline, monitors risk, and works closely with the Board and its committees in their oversight capacity to ensure the financial wellbeing of the organization.

· Working with direct reports, develops, presents, implements and reviews programs, policies and procedures. Anticipates changing community needs with vision and imagination, initiates long-range strategic and operational planning, and is responsible and accountable for implementation of all such plans.

· Works closely with Board members, volunteers, and fund development staff to identify, cultivate and solicit donors and funding partners in support of the programs of WPE, through standard avenues and the creative use of digital strategies. Is effective articulating to donors and community leaders the importance of the services WPE provides. Understands planned giving and is able to earn the trust that sustains the long-term relationships with major donors that inspire unrestricted gifts for current operating support, restricted gifts for capacity-building, capital gifts and gifts to endowment.

· Oversees the administrative and fiduciary functions of WPE by recruiting, training, supervising and delegating duties and responsibilities to a dedicated and able employed and volunteer staff, with which the Executive Director functions effectively in a highly collaborative style. Reflects an authentic appreciation of the advantages of group decision-making processes and an authentic commitment to servant leadership: a serve-first mindset, empowering those one works with, serving instead of commanding, showing humility instead of brandishing authority, and enhancing the development of staff and volunteers; is able to take executive responsibility where there is dissensus and an unpopular administrative decision must be made to serve the needs of WPE.

· Represents WPE to local and state government, numerous community stakeholders, groups of associations and agencies, and the media. Works closely in partnership with state, city and county governments if the opportunities arise, in optimizing the extent to which WPE can deliver services to the disadvantaged.

PROFESSIONAL QUALIFICATIONS and

EXPERIENCE:

The ideal candidate will have:

· Passion for services to those at risk, seniors, to disadvantaged families, to the limited-English-speaking community, and to children. A visionary and personal style that inspires others to care deeply about the mission and work of WPE. Intercultural sensitivity and dedication to inclusiveness and diversity are essential. Commitment to community, to the oneness and interdependence of all of us, to the ideals of support, sharing, giving, receiving, acceptance, love.

· Ideally, the candidate will have core belief in WPE's guiding principle of unity, and an understanding that the Board, staff, volunteers, and clients/guests of WPE are of every faith, ethnicity, and race in our diverse communities.

· Familiarity with the operations of nonprofit organizations addressing food, clothing, and/or housing insecurity is preferred; evidence of the ability to transfer prior collaborative management experience and leadership skills with complex operations; experience in working with services to low-income individuals and communities preferred.

· Ability to develop strong working relationships with staff and volunteers, to identify and recruit able new staff, and to motivate, mentor, and inspire an effective and diverse professional workforce, creating a staff/volunteer culture of affection and reward, the opposite of a culture of criticism and fear.
