It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.


A small national all volunteer based nonprofit (founded in 2011) seeks an Executive Director driven to help law enforcement solve cold cases, missing families find their loved ones and resolution for America's Unidentified.


Reporting to the Board of Directors, the Executive Director (ED) will have overall strategic and operational responsibility for the Nonprofit's staff, volunteers, programs, expansion, and execution of its mission. S/he will initially develop deep knowledge of field, core programs, operations, and business plans.


Leadership & Management:

  • Ensure ongoing programmatic excellence, rigorous program evaluation, and consistent quality of finance and administration, fundraising, communications, and systems; recommend timelines and resources needed to achieve the strategic goals.
  • Actively engage and energize Nonprofit volunteers, board members, event committees, alumni, partnering organizations, and funders.
  • Develop, maintain, and support a Board of Directors: serve as ex-officio of each committee, seek and build board involvement with strategic direction for both ongoing operations.

Fundraising & Communications:

  • Expand revenue generating and fundraising activities to support existing program operations.
  • Deepen and refine all aspects of communications-from web presence to external relations with the goal of creating a stronger brand.
  • Use external presence and relationships to garner new opportunities.


The ED will be thoroughly committed to the Nonprofit's mission. All candidates should have proven leadership, coaching, and relationship management experience. Concrete demonstrable experience and other qualifications include:

  • Working knowledge of the Missing and Unidentified community.
  • A degree in criminal justice, social work, forensic art or business administration, or field experience in law enforcement, social work, forensic art, community driven nonprofit, legal administration, or similar background, or proven leadership experience coupled with personal experience, or any combination of the aforementioned.
  • Organizational management with the ability to coach staff, manage, and develop teams, set and achieve strategic objectives, and manage a budget.
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills; a persuasive and passionate communicator with excellent interpersonal and multidisciplinary project skills
  • Action-oriented, entrepreneurial, adaptable, and innovative approach to business planning
  • Ability to work effectively in collaboration with diverse groups of people
  • Passion, idealism, integrity, positive attitude, mission-driven, and self-directed

Reminder this is an all volunteer based nonprofit with a national and international base of volunteers. There is no compensation for this position.

Time commitment:

Will be established by the Executive Director themselves based on what is needed on a week by week basis. A good estimation is 20 plus hours a week.

Job Location:

Virtual, anywhere in the United States, but a preference for someone in Clark County, NV.

Ideal candidate:

Is someone retired from a career of law enforcement, social work, or forensic art, or a family member of a missing or unidentified victim with the time available to run the nonprofit. Someone who is driven to help victims and families find peace.
