Nonprofit Executive Search


Development & Philanthropy

Tracking the talent, finding the leaders to help nonprofits thrive

Randall Search Associates is a nonprofit executive search firm based in San Francisco and specializing in development/advancement searches. We have a singular focus: to place the most experienced and talented fundraising professionals in education, healthcare, human services, the arts and other nonprofit organizations throughout the United States. 


As the U.S. nonprofit sector continues to grow, the demand for top fundraisers has never been stronger—or more competitive. In this environment, no organization can afford to lose momentum during a change or lapse in development leadership. With over 25 years of fundraising experience in nonprofits and a nationwide network of top development professionals, Randall Search Associates is well positioned to help you identify the fundraising candidates who will meet your organization’s specific challenges.


We provide fully retained executive search services as well as supported search services.




The raising of extraordinarily large sums of money, given voluntarily and freely by millions of our fellow Americans, is a unique American tradition... Philanthropy, charity, giving voluntarily and freely... call it what you like, but it is truly a jewel of an American tradition.
