Foundations & Philanthropy

Foundations & Philanthropy

Koya has a deep track record of partnering with clients active in philanthropy and foundations. Over the past three years, more than 25% of Koya’s searches have been in philanthropy.

We have worked with a range of public, private, and family foundations to recruit CEOs, Presidents and other senior leaders, among many other positions. The executives we place are widely viewed as top talent in their respective fields.

We have extensive experience partnering with foundations that have a strong connection with founding families. Through this work we have developed a nuanced understanding of the opportunities and challenges of working with these clients, and are able to design a strategy that reflects each family’s unique culture, needs, and philanthropic goals.

Our team understands the talent landscape in philanthropy, and how to assess for the critical combination of skill set and culture fit while also building leadership pipelines that reflect diversity, equity, and inclusion.
