· Collaborate with other funders, advisors, and grant recipients to facilitate the exchange of information and maximize lessons learned.

·  Ensure compliance with IRS regulations and any other legal requirements, as well as client reporting requirements for all grants.

·  Respond to additional client requests as needed, including research requests.

·  Complete other projects as assigned, including some related to Tempest Advisors’ internal operations and planning.
