Make-A-Wish® is one of the world's leading children's charities, granting a wish every 34 minutes in the U.S. and its territories. Tens of thousands of volunteers, donors, and supporters advance the Make-A-Wish vision to grant the wish of every child diagnosed with a critical illness. A wish can be that spark that helps these children believe that anything is possible and gives them the strength to fight harder against their illnesses. This impact is why Make-A-Wish is driven to make every one of these children’s wishes come true.

Make-A-Wish is one united family, but it’s also a collection of independently chartered nonprofit organizations that stand committed to a shared vision and mission. Since 1982, Make-A-Wish® Minnesota has granted over 6,000 wishes to create hope, strength, and joy for wish kids, their families, and entire communities. With a staff of 20 and more than 450 volunteers throughout the state, Make-A-Wish Minnesota grants a wish every 33 hours – making life-changing impacts.

Make-A-Wish Minnesota is seeking a dynamic and visionary President & Chief Executive Officer to guide the organization through its next phase. Reporting to the Board of Directors, the President & CEO will provide innovative leadership in support of the organization’s mission, vision, and strategic direction and ensure MAW Minnesota’s stability, financial health, vibrancy, and innovation within a constantly changing environment.

This is an extraordinary opportunity for a highly relational, experienced team leader and proven fundraiser to join a committed team creating unforgettable experiences with the power to change lives.
