The Organization

Health Leads is an innovation hub that seeks to unearth and address the deep societal roots of racial inequity that impact our health. Founded in 1996, Health Leads helped set the standard for health systems and clinics looking to integrate programs that connect people to essential resources like food, heat, and housing.

Hybrid: Remote and Morristown, NJ

Grants Manager, Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation

The Organization

About Us

The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation is an organization in transformation.  Five years ago, the Foundation set a course to achieve its vision of a more equitable New Jersey. Given the devastating events of the last two years, it has accelerated this commitment and further refined its vision and strategic direction to center racial equity and justice, where people of all races and communities have equal access to opportunities and can thrive and achieve their full potential.

The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation has a long history of cultivating vibrant ecosystems and resourcing efforts to promote the well-being of people across New Jersey. In its grantmaking, the Foundation prioritizes networks, movements, organizations, and leaders closest to the harms and solutions to inequity and injustice and who have been historically excluded from investment and opportunity. In doing so, it is shifting wealth, power, and other critical resources to changemakers on the frontlines of communities and movements in ways that enable them to accelerate, deepen, and advance their work on their terms.

Foundation Board and Staff are energized by the progress the organization is making in investing in emergent and historically under-resourced communities, namely communities of color:

  • In 2021, the Foundation launched the first round of Imagine a New Way grants to organizations advocating for just systems and tackling barriers to equity in New Jersey.
  • In January 2022, the Foundation introduced its inaugural Momentum Fund cohort–ten organizations selected by a panel of community leaders employing diverse strategies to address root causes of structural racism across the state. The Momentum Fund provides cohort members with three years of flexible funding to support them as they explore new approaches and self-determine the best course forward in their work.

This is a critical time at the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation as it works to transform its grantmaking, partnerships, and internal operations to center racial equity and justice and ensure that these values and capabilities are central to all that it is and all that it does. This is a “build moment” for the Foundation. As such, it is seeking entrepreneurial team members who are excited about opportunities to create and who are energized by working in deeply collaborative ways, actively learning, building new relationships, and leveraging and amplifying community expertise and solutions.

For more information on Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, please visit the organization’s website. The Strategic Direction and President’s Messages include additional details about the Foundation’s transformation.

The Opportunity

The Grants Manager plays a critical role in helping the Geraldine R.

Program Officer, Sustainable Environments, Surdna Foundation

The Organization

Created by John E. Andrus in 1917, the Surdna Foundation has assets of approximately $1.3 billion and an annual grantmaking budget of $50+ million. The Foundation has a staff of 25, based in its Midtown Manhattan offices. Governed by a Board of Directors that includes fifth-generation family members, the longstanding values of the Andrus family – practicality, modesty, excellence, and an appreciation for serving those in need – underlie all the Surdna Foundation’s work. The Surdna Foundation seeks to foster just and sustainable communities in the United States – communities guided by principles of social justice and distinguished by healthy and sustainable environments, inclusive economies, and thriving cultures.

Surdna’s theory of change is based on three beliefs:

  1. Historical and structural racial inequities are at the root of the deeply embedded challenges that
    communities face across America.
  2. Advancing racial equity and addressing power imbalances is critical to solving these challenges and
    achieving a more just and sustainable society.
  3. The best way to address racial inequities and power imbalances is to honor the agency of individuals
    and communities that are most impacted by these injustices. These individuals should be regarded as experts in creating solutions to the systemic issues we aim to solve.

As such, Surdna believes that we can achieve a more just and sustainable society by directing our grantmaking resources toward the building of wealth and power in systematically disenfranchised communities and investing in the capacity of communities of color and low-wealth communities to hold policymakers and institutions accountable to ensure all community benefits are shared equitably.

The Opportunity

The Surdna Foundation is seeking nominations and applications for the role of Program Officer, Sustainable Environments. This new PO will join the Sustainable Environments (SE) team to maintain an annual $9.2 million grantmaking portfolio of partnerships that drive a nuanced investment in environmental, climate, and land justice, recognizing that these intersecting issues disproportionately impact communities of color and low- wealth communities at crisis levels.

Reporting to the Program Director and working alongside the Senior Program Associate, the new Program Officer (PO) will, first and foremost, listen to and learn from frontline and grassroots leaders who are advancing solutions that address the environmental, climate, and land crises at the intersection of racial, economic, and gender justice. The PO will nurture relationships with grantee partners in a way that builds trust and is
rooted in respect, transparency, accountability, and consent. They will also join the ongoing work of building out an ecosystem of people, movements, and organizations that the SE team can consider for funding in the future.

The Sustainable Environments team is committed to long-term partnerships, and as such, much of the work of the new Program Officer will emphasize nurturing existing grantee partner relationships. Internally, the new PO will also identify program goals and develop processes, actions, and timelines to meet those goals, as well as practices to evaluate the effectiveness of those processes. They will join the SE team to build robust, high trust, transparent relationships inside the organization to drive collaboration and mission alignment. They will also work across the philanthropic field to organize with peers to build more equitable practices that shift power and funding to frontline communities, grassroots organizations, and leaders.

The ideal candidate will have a clear alignment with the vision, goals, and values of the Sustainable Environments team. They will have at least 7 years of experience working deeply in and with communities of color and low-wealth communities, building programs, and navigating an array of movement perspectives and strategies that are sometimes in tension with each other. They will have background knowledge (lived experience, professional or academic) and a systems-level analysis of the root causes of the intersecting environmental, climate, and land crises. They will understand the connections between systemic racism and oppression, extractive economies, and how these root causes perpetuate climate change, environmental racism, gentrification, land loss, and the inequitable distribution of wealth and power. They will have experience cultivating relationships and using those relationships to drive collaboration, create critical feedback loops, and amplify the work of an organization. Additionally, they will have demonstrated the ability to articulate the vision and goals of an organization to a diverse set of stakeholders.

The ideal candidate will also be an experienced collaborator and leader with a proven commitment to the people and places most impacted by discriminatory (racist, sexist, xenophobic) responses to the environmental, climate, and land crises. They will have experience centering the expertise and voices of women, queer folk, people of color, and disabled leaders who have long been leading solutions, initiatives, and programs in community. They will bring an unwavering commitment to equity, justice, and liberation and to disrupting the impacts of white supremacy and white dominant culture – specifically on the work of leaders of color and on the way philanthropies hold power and operate. They will be an authentic and responsive interpersonal communicator who uses those skills to build relationships and collaborations across Surdna’s program areas. Moreover, they will be flexible, introspective, curious, and innovative. It is crucial that the new PO possesses an analysis about and understands the impacts of white dominant culture and join the SE team as it promotes workflow, communication styles, sector participation, and partner engagement that attempt to disrupt that culture. Black, Indigenous, Asian, other people of color, disabled people, queer leaders, and those from other marginalized communities are particularly encouraged to apply for this role.

About Sustainable Environments

The Sustainable Environments (SE) program seeks to advance racial justice and support communities of color and low-wealth communities to move the solutions they have been building, implementing, and dreaming of for decades. We trust and believe that the folks most impacted by intersecting, inequitable crises know the most about how we need to move collectively forward to address these crises. Moreover, we believe that by investing in the capacity of the environment and climate justice frontline and grassroots movements, particularly those led by people of color, and the capacity of communities to self-determine the ownership, control, and stewardship of land and infrastructure assets, these communities will begin to see more equitable environmental outcomes across racial lines that benefit and uplift all. We believe in supporting a just transition and reparations and we stand alongside our partners in advancing this work. And lastly, we support leaders and organizations who are building political, economic, and cultural power, holding people with power in private and public sectors accountable to marginalized communities, and building alternatives to our current extractive economy.

Opportunities for the Program Officer

The Program Officer (PO) works closely with the Program Director and Senior Program Associate on all aspects of the program, including day-to-day operations of the $9.2 million Sustainable Environments portfolio. More specifically, the new Program Officer will:

  • Maintain deep, trusting relationships with existing grantee partners, while relying on your expertise to build an ecosystem of people, movements, and organizations that can be considered for funding in the future (the balance of relationship work leans heavily toward nurturing existing relationships).

This aspect of the work will include communicating with grantees regularly and learning from partners throughout the life of the relationship in a non-extractive way and sharing learning with colleagues across the foundation, including the board.
  • Work and organize with other funders to drive a more accountable philanthropic sector that aims to shift power and resources to people most impacted by intersecting crises.
  • Engender values alignment across the sector, as well as leveraging your position as a sector leader to foster connections between funders and SE grantee partners.
  • Use your position and relationships to connect grantee partners with other funders and help mobilize greater resources toward their work.

St. Paul, MN

Managing Director of Investments, Bush Foundation

The Organization

The Bush Foundation

Headquartered in St. Paul, Minnesota, the Bush Foundation was founded in 1953 by Archibald Granville Bush, an American businessman at 3M, and his wife, Edyth Bassler Bush. The Foundation was established to advance “scientific, educational, and charitable purposes” and today supports a range of initiatives, including leadership development, community problem solving, Native nation building, student-centered learning and the arts. The Foundation operates with a staff of 30+, stewards an endowment that has grown to $1.6B and has a combined operating and philanthropic budget for 2022 of $70MM. More information about us can be found at bushfoundation.org.

We inspire and support creative problem solving – within and across sectors – to make our region better for everyone. Everything we do is to advance this purpose. It is what ties all our work together. We invest in great ideas and the people who power them in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and the 23 Native nations that share this geography. This is both our tagline and our strategy to advance our purpose. We work through open grantmaking programs to support organizations and people who think bigger and think differently about solutions to problems in their communities to:

·       Develop, test and spread great ideas that will make the region better for everyone

·       Inspire, equip and connect people to more effectively lead change

Our Operating Values

We believe that change happens through people and that the future of our region depends on what the people in it believe they can do and be. We consider every investment to be an investment in people, to think bigger and think differently about what is possible. Our operating values guide everything we do. We try to live them in every aspect of our grantmaking and our operations.

·       Spread Optimism. We encourage individuals and organizations to think bigger and think differently about what is possible. We are positive and supportive in our internal and external interactions.

·       Work Beyond Ourselves. We actively seek opportunities to work in true collaboration with others to have more impact. We are willing to both lead and follow. We candidly share what we learn with others.

·       Everybody Matters. We are a champion for both excellence and equity inside and out of the Foundation. We have fair, open and inclusive processes. We work to raise overall quality of life while also closing opportunity and achievement gaps.

·       Steward Well. We demonstrate appreciation for the Foundation’s history and thoughtfully build on its legacy. We hold ourselves to high standards of integrity and accountability and conduct ourselves in a way we hope would make our founders proud.

·       More Good. Every Year. We are a true learning organization and work to be smarter and more effective every year. We never lose sight of the reason we exist: to do the most possible good with the resources left to the community by Archibald G. Bush.

We have a deep organizational commitment to equity and that commitment is integrated throughout what we do and how we do it. We try to ensure we are accessible and relevant to people all around the region and we make sure that we are investing in communities with the greatest needs. We have a long-standing specific commitment to investing in Native Americans and the 23 Native nations in our region.

Organizational Change

The Foundation has been going through significant organizational change. We were already making strategy shifts when the global pandemic, the recession that deeply affected communities in the region and the racial reckoning following the murder of George Floyd pushed us to change even more quickly. We are working to be more open, more responsive and a stronger force for equitable change in the region. This includes doing more to advance racial equity, making bigger and longer-term commitments to support transformative change and sharing more power and working with and through community-based organizations. We have shifted structure and redefined jobs and are figuring out the day-to-day implications of some of these decisions. In all this change, we are hoping to increase our impact in making the region better for everyone.

Investment Portfolio

The Foundation’s investment portfolio includes $1.6B spread across a wide variety of asset classes. Approximately 50% of the portfolio is invested in private equity investments. While the portfolio has performed well overall, this particular class of investment has performed particularly well and has grown as a percentage of overall portfolio value. In recent years the portfolio’s total returns have consistently been in the top 1% when compared against peers.

In addition to more traditional aligned investments, the portfolio includes Impact Investments, including Program Related Investments and Mission Related Investments. These investments, which seek social and/or environmental benefits that are measured in addition to financial return, represent a small but growing portion of the portfolio, with specific goals for increasing portfolio share over the next several years. As described in our Impact Investing Statement, the Foundation’s impact investing activity is focused on advancing equity in capital markets and supporting business and community development in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and the 23 Native Nations we serve.

Position Summary

Thoughtful and effective investment management is core to our strategy. With the pending retirement of our long-tenured investment leader, we are seeking a Managing Director of Investments who will advance the Foundation’s goals by leading the investment and asset allocation strategies so that we can meet our near-term and long-term goals. Aligning these decisions with our mission is paramount.

Marketing & Communications Associate, National Center for Family Philanthropy

The Organization

The National Center for Family Philanthropy (NCFP) is an Equal Opportunity Employer. It is the policy of NCFP to ensure equal employment opportunity without discrimination or harassment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability, marital status, citizenship, genetic information, or any other characteristic protected by law. NCFP prohibits any such discrimination or harassment.

 

The National Center for Family Philanthropy is a community of donors, their families and boards, and staff of family philanthropies. NCFP provides resources, programs and education, and support to its network to equip family philanthropists with the tools they need to have greater impact.

NCFP is growing, implementing an ambitious strategic plan, and holding a new perspective on effective philanthropy. This is an exciting time to join the organization—there are opportunities for growth and the associate will contribute to the execution of a new communications strategy.

The salary for this position is $55,000 – $65,000 depending on experience plus benefits, which include paid vacation; 11 holidays; new parent leave; 100% employee premium paid for medical/dental/vision insurance; 5% retirement contribution; short and long-term disability and life insurance; flexible in-office/in-home work environment; transportation benefit; and professional development. This is a Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) status exempt position. Preference for candidates that can be based in the Washington, D.C. metro area.

ORGANIZATIONAL OVERVIEW AND CONTEXT 

When NCFP was founded, philanthropy as a professional field was nascent and NCFP developed programs to successfully meet the needs of the family philanthropists it served at that time. Organizations serving philanthropists were not common, and NCFP was instrumental in organizing and building a base of knowledge to support the development of a now recognized field of family philanthropy.

The pace of change in external context has rapidly accelerated as the field reckons with national disruption, the effects of climate change, health crises and long-standing structural inequities. The field of family philanthropy is calling for support to respond to an increasingly intersectional world, requiring social- impact investments that are more strategic, justice-minded, and effective.

NCFP is responding with support that is agile, evolving, and increasingly co-created by stakeholders and partners in the field. To achieve this, NCFP has adopted a new strategic plan, with a theory of impact linked to a clear business model, that calls for both an expansion in the number of families served as well as a deepening of their engagement toward more effective practices.

NCFP, guided by its refreshed theory of impact, works to:

  • Elevate a vision for family philanthropy, including the potential and practices of impactful and intentional giving.
  • Equip families and their partners to achieve purposeful outcomes with curated and relevant tools, resources, and skills.
  • Activate and connect a diverse and engaged peer community of philanthropic families and partners.

A newly designed Family Giving Lifecycle framework encompasses the breadth and inflection points of family philanthropy and orients donors to effectiveness for the purpose of promoting better outcomes. It recognizes the complexity of family decision making and acknowledges the iterative nature of the journey families undertake, making room for revisiting topics as the family and philanthropy evolve. Program strategies will extend opportunities for peer-based learning and incorporate a wider variety of tools and learning modalities to meet the connection, exploration, and training goals of philanthropic families. Based on feedback that the field is asking for expert-led communities of practice, these programmatic approaches increasingly include ongoing peer learning and networks.

Winston – Salem , NC

Program Officer, Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation

The Organization

POSITION ANNOUNCEMENT: Program Officer, Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation

LOCATED IN: Winston-Salem, North Carolina

 BACKGROUND

Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation is a statewide, private, family foundation dedicated to improving the quality of life for all North Carolinians. The Foundation was established in 1936 as a memorial to Z. Smith Reynolds, the youngest son of R.J. Reynolds. For more than eighty years, the Foundation has been engaged in forward-thinking philanthropy with contributions of $608 million in North Carolina.

The Foundation’s current All For NC Grantmaking Framework for Grantmaking and Learning includes the following strategies:

  •  State-Level Systemic Change Strategy, to improve state-level systems and structures to remove barriers and create opportunities;
  •  Community-Based Strategy, to leverage the unique assets, knowledge, experience and connections in communities to create meaningful change; and
  •  An Exploratory, Visionary Ideas Strategy, to invest in the bold ideas of North Carolinians.

Alongside these three main strategies, the Foundation has also expressed its commitment to:

  • Augment its participation in its hometown of Winston-Salem/Forsyth County,
  • Use a racial equity lens to underpin all of its work, and
  • Continue to be a learning organization.

The intent of the Foundation’s Framework for Grantmaking and Learning is to provide different strategies that meet people and communities where they are, as well as to break down silos, allow more flexibility in our grantmaking, and provide multiple entry points for potential applicants. The Foundation recognizes that not all the work that is funded will fit neatly into these three strategies; rather, there is work that lives in between them. Therefore, the Foundation wants to remain flexible to foster those areas of intersection.

·         Engaging with communities across NC, nonprofit partners, philanthropic institutions, ZSR Trustees and staff to design, implement and strengthen this strategy on an ongoing basis.

Position Overview

PROGRAM OFFICER POSITION DESCRIPTION – Community-Based Grantmaking

The Foundation is hiring a Program Officer to support the strategies set forward in this grantmaking framework. This position will have primary responsibility for implementing the Foundation’s Community-Based Strategy, which has three components: a Community Progress Fund, a Collaborative Problem-Solving approach, and supporting capacity building in under-resourced communities across North Carolina.

Community Progress Fund

The Community Progress Fund is an annual grantmaking strategy designed to provide an infusion of short-term funding at the right moment and is intended to build on existing momentum to help move an issue, an idea or an organization forward. The Progress Fund allows communities to test ideas, expand promising efforts, or achieve greater impact. Our goal is to award a significant portion of grants to organizations that are run by and primarily serve people of color; therefore, ZSR strongly encourages applications from these organizations. This position will have primary responsibility for leading the Progress Fund grantmaking process, which includes:

  • Preparing and implementing a grant proposal review process by leading a team of ZSR staff and consultants
  • Leading the learning regarding the intent and impact of the grantmaking approach, and adjusting the implementation accordingly
  • Organizing and managing timelines and communications with ZSR’s Board of Trustees
  • Analyzing data on grantmaking trends and demographics
  • Managing the grant reporting process

Collaborative Problem-Solving

ZSR’s Collaborative Problem-Solving approach is intended to support a limited number of community proposals that use inclusive, collaborative and resourceful processes to authentically engage a community in tackling challenges and creating solutions. These grants support communities to use collaborative problem-solving processes that lead to more effective, equitable and sustainable solutions. Program Officer responsibilities include:

  • Supporting the existing cohort of five Collaborative Problem-Solving sites in partnership with other program officers, including designing opportunities for learning across the sites, in partnership with grantees
  • Continuing to develop and embed professional development and learning among ZSR staff and Trustees
  • Leading discussions and potential processes regarding the design and launch of future rounds of Collaborative Problem-Solving grantmaking
  • Serving as primary liaison with Foundation consultants

Capacity Building in Under-Resourced Communities

The Foundation’s strategy for supporting capacity-building in under-resourced communities is a strength-based approach that invests in Black, Indigenous, and People of Color=led and serving organizations across NC. Program officer responsibilities include:

  • Partnering with community-based, grassroots organizations as co-designers and co-leaders of meaningful convenings, networks, learning and grantmaking approaches for community-embedded organizations and emerging nonprofits that already have – or promise to have – a significant impact on specific communities and constituencies.
  • Engaging with communities across NC, nonprofit partners, philanthropic institutions, ZSR Trustees and staff to design, implement and strengthen this strategy on an ongoing basis.

QUALIFICATIONS

The successful candidate will be visionary, strategic, analytical, intellectually curious, resilient, detail-oriented and grounded in the different needs of communities. They must be adept at building relationships and understanding power dynamics and how they influence advancing change. An understanding of the NC nonprofit landscape, especially in under-resourced communities, is preferred. The individual selected will possess facilitation, collaboration, convening, and project management skills and be able to bring various stakeholders with diverse backgrounds, opinions and experiences together. This individual will share the Foundation’s core values and commitment to racial equity.

A bachelor’s degree from an accredited college is required, and an advanced degree or equivalent experience is preferred. Five years of related work experience is desired. Exceptional writing and communication skills are required, along with the ability to assimilate information quickly, work under pressure and meet deadlines. A fundamental knowledge of the State of North Carolina, humility, self-confidence and a sense of humor are helpful and preferred.

The position is based in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and requires extensive statewide travel. The Program Officer is not required to live in Winston-Salem but should be available to be present in the Winston-Salem office one to two days per week.
