True to the founding principles of service to the poor, dignity of the human person and solid business management, the mission of Raza Development Fund is to invest capital and create financial solutions to increase opportunities for Latinx and poor families across the country.

Raza Development Fund, Inc. (“RDF” or “the Fund”) was founded 20 years ago as a Community Development Financial Institution and a support organization to UnidosUS. Today, RDF stands as the largest Latino/a-focused national CDFI, with nearly half a billion dollars in assets under management and a Standard & Poor’s investment-grade rating of AA-, and is a well-regarded voice and source of capital for underserved communities across the country. Since its inception, RDF has provided organizations serving low-income families – with a particular focus on Hispanic families – in 38 states with technical assistance and financing in excess of $1 billion, which has leveraged over $5 billion in private and public capital for education, childcare, affordable housing, social service projects and most recently, small businesses.

At this exciting and pivotal time in the history of the CDFI movement, Raza Development Fund is seeking a visionary President and CEO with the ability to continue to grow the impact of the organization as it responds to an evolving financial sector.

The CEO will provide transparent leadership to enhance RDF’s vision and strategies in ways that both build upon its history &expertise and position the organization to meet the future needs of the Latinx community and the CDFI arena. This leader is responsible for the business affairs of the organization and reports directly to the Board of Directors. The CEO is responsible for sustaining, building and delivering on the mission of RDF and meeting the needs of its broad and varied constituents. This includes driving an innovative strategic plan that envisions growth and expanded impact, new initiatives and an even stronger infrastructure.
