National Catholic Partnership on Disability (NCPD)
The National Catholic Partnership on Disability (NCPD) is seeking an Executive Director (ED) for this mission-driven organization promoting the inclusion of persons with disabilities into their church community. The role of the Executive Director is to bring innovative, servant leadership and strong financial management to continue the mission, growth and increased reach of programs, resources, and services provided by NCPD.
NCPD plays a key leadership role within the U.S. Catholic Church promoting and ensuring the meaningful participation of the 14 million U.S. Catholics with disabilities in their life of faith. The NCPD Executive Director works closely with the Catholic Disability Foundation (CDF), an entity that serves as the fundraising arm for NCPD.
The ED reports to the NCPD Board of Directors and is responsible for the organization’s consistent achievement of its mission, strategic objectives, annual operating plan, fundraising and financial objectives. There are currently four paid staff and 50 volunteers that support the organization. The office is currently located in the Washington DC area, but NCPD will consider candidates who will work remotely with periodic visits to the DC office.
The ideal candidate will be a practicing Roman Catholic in communion with the Church who understands the ED position as a ministry at the service of the Church’s evangelizing mission; committed to the moral and doctrinal teachings of the Catholic faith. A bachelor’s degree is required as well as seven years of nonprofit leadership and/or management with a knowledge of a wide spectrum of disabilities.
