Nonprofit Executive Search

Our Deep Sector Knowledge Brings You Transformational Talent

We Work With an Array of Nonprofit Institutions

Dise & Company has a depth of experience working with nonprofit institutions that range in staff size, budget, and mission. Our ability to place nonprofit leaders—including executive directors, chief financial officers, heads of school, and fundraising directors—is based in our understanding of the nonprofit landscape and the particular needs of 501(c)(3) entities. Because nonprofit searches involve working with boards (and often a search committee), we are adept at navigating this process to achieve the best result possible. 


We have filled leadership positions in an array of nonprofit institutions that include health and human services, museums, animal welfare, education, arts organizations, and foundations. Dise & Company is well-known for thinking outside of the box when identifying candidates for nonprofit roles.

Finding the Right Candidates

All organizations say their biggest challenge is finding good executive talent. However, the best executive candidates are often invisible to nonprofit leaders (and their boards) because organizations are not in the business of finding talent—that is what we do. 


Clients choose Dise & Company for talent acquisition because we deliver outstanding candidates that fit. Because you can’t size up fit on a resume, during a simple interview, or from an assessment test, we spend considerable time getting to know both clients and candidates. 


Simply put, unfilled executive and management positions in nonprofit organizations are a costly drain on productivity and the wrong hire can be very expensive for any organization.
