United Religions Initiative (URI) is a global grassroots interfaith network that cultivates peace and justice by engaging people to bridge religious and cultural differences and work together for the good of their communities and the world. URI’s strength is derived from its grassroots networks; over 500 Cooperation Circles (CC), groups of at least seven members representing least three different religions, spiritual expressions and indigenous traditions worldwide. URI includes thousands of members in 83 countries, impacting well over 2.5 million people. URI is headquartered in San Francisco’s Presidio National Park. There is a staff of 15 in San Francisco, one in Buenos Aires and one in the U.K., as well as 16 regional coordinators and several program associates who work with regional leadership teams to anchor URI’s work in eight regions (North America; Africa; Asia; Europe; Latin America and the Caribbean; Middle East and North Africa; Southeast Asia and the Pacific; and Multi-Region). URI’s 2013 budget is $3.2 million. For more information, please visit www.URI.org.
The Executive Director will serve as the chief executive officer of the organization and is tasked with providing leadership to the staff, board, and URI’s global partners.

S/he will travel internationally when necessary and serve as a primary URI spokesperson on issues affecting the organization’s work. The Executive Director will be highly engaged in working with development staff, the Global Council and the President’s Council on fundraising including major gift solicitations with individual and institutional donors. A high level of integrity and a strong moral fiber are essential qualities for the Executive Director.
