Vice President, Community Investment & Impact (VP) | The Colorado Health Foundation
The largest foundation in the state of Colorado and one of the largest health philanthropies in the nation, The Colorado Health Foundation has earned a stellar reputation within Colorado and beyond as an innovative thought partner, a flexible grantmaker and an intentional advocate “bringing health in reach for all Coloradans.”
In November, the Foundation announced the planned retirement of Chief Impact Officer Bruce Byington, effective in March 2021, and the promotion of Amy Latham, currently Vice President of Philanthropy, as his successor. As part of the transition, the Philanthropy department is being renamed, and thus the current search for the newly titled role of Vice President, Community Investment & Impact.
The VP, Community Investment and Impact is critical to the Foundation’s effectiveness. Leading a team of professionals numbering two dozen, the Foundation’s only Vice President is one of just four members of the executive team (along with the CEO, the Chief Impact Officer and the CFO). Together, they share responsibility for the deployment and effectiveness of grants and community investments, which in 2020 totaled $146 million. Overseeing a large team and an expansive portfolio of interests in normal times is as challenging as it is fulfilling; the COVID-19 pandemic has added urgency to the mix even as it has made the state’s health inequities even more apparent.
