Chief Executive Officer – Marine Corps University Foundation

Marine Corps University Foundation - Quantico, VA

For over 30 years, the Marine Corps University Foundation has harnessed the power of the private sector in support of the Marine Corps’ most pressing educational needs.​​

Given the Marine Corps University’s finite resources, the Marine Corps University Foundation raises funds to attract the leading minds in security studies, terrorism, warfighting, emerging states, and defense policy to Quantico, so that they may educate active-duty Marines on critical geostrategic matters.

Marine Corps University Foundation is seeking a Chief Executive Officer with the primary focus of driving the Foundation’s mission to provide essential private resources that enhance the education and training of Marine Leaders. 

Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Provide visionary leadership to the Foundation’s staff, ensuring alignment with the organization’s mission and values.
  • Develop and execute comprehensive long-term and short-term development plans per the Foundation’s mission and goals.
  • Develop and implement fundraising strategies to secure financial resources necessary for the Foundation’s operations, initiatives, and growth.
  • Drive the Foundation’s mission to strengthen the education and training of Marine Leaders by developing and supporting programs that align with this objective.
  • Oversee financial management, budgeting, and allocation of funds to ensure the Foundation’s financial stability and efficient resource utilization.
