Santa Monica, CA
Chief Executive Officer
The Board seeks a fundraising chief executive to significantly expand the reach and impact of the leading nonprofit water organization in Los Angeles County, with the mission to promote healthy watersheds, thriving oceans, and smart water management. The CEO will lead and financially strengthen Heal the Bay as it engages children, adults, business and government leaders, the media and public policy leaders in “hands-on, minds-on” conservation education and advocacy for clean, healthy, thriving water ecosystems. Reporting to the Board, the CEO is accountable for oversight of all aspects of Heal the Bay’s facilities, living exhibits, education, public programs, science, operations and advocacy.
Heal the Bay builds, expands and preserves clean, healthy, thriving water ecosystems across Los Angeles County and the Santa Monica Bay. Heal the Bay was founded in 1985 by a group of community activists led by Dorothy Green, and over the next 20 years the organization built a strong reputation for environmental stewardship, initially by being Southern California’s most effective volunteer-led bay and beach cleanup organization, and later by focusing on clean water and water-use issues in Los Angeles.
