Request for Information

We're developing a list of potential search and recruitment partners.

Our goal is to expand our network and offer potential partners the chance to understand our priorities and goals ahead of a specific request for a proposal. Because the need for a specific search usually occurs unexpectedly and with some urgency, we hope that doing some pre-work will help us build a broader network of search partners with diverse expertise and interests.

We plan to go to this list when a vacancy occurs and identify partners who are well suited to the specific search so that we can have more specific conversations about capacity, timing and contract terms.

If you wish to be added to our list in this first iteration, download the RFI (PDF) for instructions.

Responses can be sent to or to Attn: Talent Development, Bush Foundation, 101 East Fifth Street, #2400, St. Paul, MN 55101.

We will add partners to this list as they come in.
