Chief Executive Officer | Y & H Soda Foundation
The Y&H Soda Foundation is an anti-poverty organization committed to uplifting the full participation and prosperity of low-income and underserved residents of Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. We aspire to create a more just, prosperous and caring community in the East Bay. We believe that every resident deserves an equal opportunity to develop to his or her fullest potential and contribute to community life.
Since our founding 56 years ago, the Y & H Soda Foundation has become a trusted philanthropic leader in the East Bay known for helping to build the capacity of nonprofit organizations, especially in Contra Costa County. We address emergent issues by convening funders, nonprofits, businesses and government representatives to achieve a more significant impact on the lives and livelihoods of residents. We are committed to the principles and promise of inclusion, equity and justice for all as we carry out the mission set by our founders.
Over the past 13 years, the Y & H Soda Foundation has been led by a respected, thoughtful, and visionary leader who is retiring this spring. Our Board of Directors now seeks an innovative, strategic and visionary Chief Executive Officer to build on past program accomplishments, deepen our racial diversity and equity practice, and lead us into a new phase of growth and impact.
