The Data Officer will be joining a team that has been reimagined into a foundation-wide resource for ensuring that equity and transparency remain the centerpiece of their grantmaking efforts. With a focus on increasing the foundation’s “collective smartness” through effective utilization of grants data, the Data Officer will partner with GLO team members and collaborate across the foundation to implement a strategy for grants data collection and analysis. The Data Officer will report to the Director, Grantmaking, Learning, and Operations. The salary range for this role is $135,000 – $165,000 and includes a comprehensive benefits package. Salary offers are based on a candidate’s years of experience and the foundation’s practice of maintaining salary equity. TEAM OVERVIEW In early 2021, the Grants Management department was relaunched as the Grantmaking, Learning, and Operations (GLO) team, incorporating responsibility for collating and disseminating insights and learnings from their own work, and from around the foundation, into opportunities to drive process improvements that maintains equity and transparency in their grantmaking efforts. The team is in a continuous learning posture, utilizing their unique vantage point across the organization as embedded partners with programmatic teams and collaborators with administrative functions to facilitate the grantmaking process and achieve foundation goals.

A set of values drove the process and design principles, including: leveraging collaboration and mutual respect in grant practice, transparency and learning for both staff and grantees, and supporting lean Hewlett Foundation staffing with simple and flexible procedures. In addition, an integral part of the design considerations for the new GMS was a focus on equity for grantees and staff.

In addition to the search for their next president, the foundation has joined with other leading philanthropies to launch BuildUS, a pooled fund to accelerate America’s transition toward a worker-centered, cleaner, and more equitable economy. These developments, in conjunction with the foundation’s robust grantmaking efforts across eight programmatic areas will provide the Data Officer with the opportunity to drive organizational strategy on grants data utilization, while partnering with individual programs and their embedded Grant Officers to provide tailored solutions where applicable. The Data Officer will engage with the following opportunities and challenges: Utilization of Grants Data The foundation has a significant amount of grants data that demonstrates the enormous impact that their philanthropic support has via the efforts of their grantees and partners. The Data Officer will collaborate across the foundation with IT, and within the GLO team with the GMS Salesforce Lead, to further streamline the process of collecting grants data to encourage and foster a culture of “collective smartness” around the effective utilization of foundation grants data. The creation of a foundation-wide approach to grants data collection, including grants related data that is not managed by the GMS, will enhance the accessibility of foundation impact for internal and external audiences alike.

Vice President of Finance, Astraea Lesbian Foundation For Justice
The Organization – Astraea Lesbian Foundation For Justice About the Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice The Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice is the only philanthropic organization working exclusively to advance LGBTQI+ human rights around the globe. They support brilliant and brave grantee partners in the U.S. and internationally who challenge oppression and seed change. Astraea works for racial, economic, social, and gender justice because we all deserve to live our lives freely, without fear, and with dignity. For 45 years, Astraea’s funding in the United States has responded to calls for full and radical queer, trans, and intersex liberation. Astraea believes that the most radical work is overwhelmingly led by Two-Spirit (2s), LGBTQI+, and Black, Indigenous or people of color who lead from an intersectional vision. These communities are fighting for survival in a country facing rising threats of fascism, a disturbing trend that continues to use state violence and surveillance to silence voices and dreams. Likewise, the rise of populist anti-gender movements remains a significant threat to the collective safety and progress of global LGBTQI+ communities. One important way Astraea counters this is to support and fund strategies to collaborate across borders and sectors and focus international funding on bridge-building. In 2022, over 83% of international grantmaking went to organizations in countries with obstructed, repressed, and closing civil societies, which are often a primary target of anti-gender movements. Astraea’s grantees build power by coming together through a variety of strategies and coalitions to make tangible change in people’s lives. Throughout our history and into our future, they are building the foundation for just and inclusive environments at the local and international levels. From providing critical public health services and guidance to advocating for legal rights and recognition, Astraea’s grantee partners are constantly working to create brighter stronger futures for people everywhere. In 2022, Astraea granted $5.9 million to 230 partners in 55 countries. The Mission Astraea’s mission is to fuel local and global movements that shift power to LGBTQI+ people and organizations pursuing social justice and human rights. They advance their mission by providing support in the form of grantmaking, philanthropic advocacy, communications, and capacity building. As funders, Astraea believes it is their responsibility to not only resource movements through grantmaking, but also to support them to grow and thrive through capacity-strengthening, accompaniment, and advocacy for their brilliant work across philanthropy. By building deep relationships with their grantees, peers, and donors, Astraea works to create stronger ecosystems and understand what they need to remain resilient, fight back against exclusion and repression, and care for themselves and each other.

Chief Philanthropy Officer, Women Moving Millions
The Organization – Women Moving Millions CHIEF PHILANTHROPY OFFICER | WOMEN MOVING MILLIONS HYBRID WORK MODEL Flexibility to be based in one of the following metro areas: New York, NY; Boston, MA; Washington, DC; Chicago, IL; or San Francisco, CA. Preference for the role to be based in New York, NY. Women Moving Millions’ (WMM) mission is to catalyze unprecedented resources to realize a gender-equal world. Launched initially as a campaign, WMM founders believed in the power and potential of what is possible when you gather a community of women together with a shared commitment to change the world. In the last decade, the community has grown to nearly 400 members who have collectively committed over $1B to improve the lives of women, girls, and gender-expansive people worldwide. WMM does this not just because they believe in gender equality, but because it’s a smarter, more effective way to foster a more equitable world. At WMM, they envision a gender equal world where women and girls are agents of change in their own lives and communities. A world that is just, at peace, and flourishing. To achieve this vision, they believe greater resources must be directed to the intersecting movements fighting for gender and racial equality. With less than 2% of philanthropic capital going to women and girls, this vision will remain out of reach unless the quantity and quality of funds going to feminist movements and leaders increases exponentially. To accomplish this vision, WMM seeks to strengthen the funding ecosystem of the movement and serve as a bridge to the intersecting movements working towards gender equality. Through the curation of a dynamic community of women philanthropists, they are able to tap into and leverage members’ collective influence and power (resources, social capital, and expertise) and drive greater capital to accelerate progress. WMM takes a ‘big tent’ approach to its membership, including women at all stages of their philanthropic journeys, creating spaces for members to be vulnerable, build trust, and hold one another accountable as they learn, grow, and act. Today, WMM brings its unique platform, movement expertise, and position as a leader in catalyzing capital to bear in everything they do. It has a proven track record of moving money to the movement: from its founding campaign, which raised a groundbreaking $181M for 41 women’s funds, to the 2020 Give Bold, Get Equal Campaign, which secured $110M in new member commitments amidst the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the Women’s Power and Influence Fund, seeded by Pivotal Ventures in 2022, which activated over $11M in new giving. WMM’s history and approach as an organization and community builder is proof that when women give boldly, others will follow. In 2023, WMM launched a new strategic planning effort, with leadership support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, to offer a new, bold vision and roadmap for how WMM will meet the urgent challenges impacting women’s rights globally and set it on an accelerated path to move the next billion dollars in resources to the movement for gender equality in its history. Through this plan, WMM seeks to unleash the full power of this community, and support a more diverse ecosystem of members, nonmembers, funding partners, and investment activity. Position Overview Amid this critical mission and environment of extraordinary investment and expansion, WMM seeks candidates for Chief Philanthropy Officer (CPO). The CPO provides comprehensive and strategic leadership of WMM philanthropic engagement and revenue growth initiatives. The primary responsibility of this leader is to drive strategies for the ongoing growth of a diverse community of philanthropic support and deep, long-term relationships based on the common goal of gender equality. Reporting directly to the CEO, the CPO works closely with senior executive and Board leadership to establish and advance philanthropic engagement goals and secure the revenue necessary to sustain WMM’s overall efforts for gender equality. The CPO will manage an evolving team that currently includes the Director of Community Engagement, Assistant Director of Communications, and Member Engagement Associate and is projected to expand commensurate with organizational growth and in consultation with the CEO. The CPO will lead efforts to fund implementation of WMM’s strategic priorities by simultaneously growing sources of recurring revenue (member dues and contributions, foundation and corporate support) to ensure long-term sustainability and raising supplementary growth capital through major gifts to WMM from members and foundations. This is a unique opportunity to play a significant role in advancing gender equality for a philanthropy leader who possesses a background of developing and executing creative, effective fundraising strategies and events as well as a sophisticated understanding of influencing and stewarding high-net-worth donors, family offices, foundations, and institutional philanthropy.

Vice President, YouthTruth, Center for Effective Philanthropy
The Organization – Center for Effective Philanthropy About YouthTruth: YouthTruth was born out of a conversation between the Center for Effective Philanthropy and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation back in 2008. The Foundation was seeking to hear from more voices – and one that was missing was the voice of the people whose lives they were trying to affect: the students themselves. YouthTruth is based on the simple but powerful premise that when you get timely feedback from those you’re trying to serve, and really listen to that feedback to make changes, you get better. About CEP: For two decades, CEP has led the movement to improve philanthropy through a powerful combination of dispassionate analysis and a passionate commitment to improving lives.

CEOs and trustees have come to rely on our research for insights into foundation effectiveness on a wide range of topics, from assessing performance to developing strategy to managing stakeholder relationships. Our highly regarded programming—including our biennial conference—gives foundation leaders an exclusive and unprecedented opportunity to connect with their peers. Strengths of CEP’s work culture are entrepreneurialism, accountability, teamwork, collegiality, diversity, and mutual respect.

We equip education leaders and philanthropic funders to integrate on-the-ground insights into planning, professional development, and improvement processes.

San Francisco, CA

President, Libra Foundation and Tao Rising LLC
The Organization – Libra Foundation The Libra Foundation and Tao Rising LLC seek a passionate, relationship-oriented, and values-aligned leader to serve as President. Reporting to the Libra Foundation’s Board of Directors, the President will lead the foundation’s dynamic team as it continues supporting frontline organizations led by marginalized communities of color to transform the criminal justice system and advance environmental, climate, and gender justice. The President will bring personal commitment to equity and justice along with thoughtfulness, heart, humility, curiosity, and integrity that can help build upon the last two decades of organizational growth. The President will have a tremendous opportunity to collaboratively steer the foundation into its next chapter of operational strength, nimble responsiveness, and heightened relationships and impact. The President will also support the continued evolution of the Tao Rising team to best partner with the family and foundation. THE ORGANIZATION The President will lead the entire dynamic 11-person team inclusive of the Libra Foundation – the family foundation that prioritizes multi-year, unrestricted grants to frontline, BIPOC-led organizations that are working in deep community to bring change – and Tao Rising – the family philanthropy office where individual family members hone their philanthropic vision, values, and learning goals. The Libra Foundation (Libra) – established in 2002 – began as a vehicle for social change. Libra was founded with a mission dedicated to human rights, with a focus on drug policy reform, women’s rights, and the right to a healthy environment. Libra is governed by a six-member family board and has assets of approximately $450 million. As Crystal Hayling assumed leadership in 2017, Libra focused its mission on US-based human rights work bringing a strong racial justice lens. This shift spurred the foundation into “Libra 2.0″ which funds and partners with organizations led by those most impacted by systemic oppression – largely communities of color that have experienced chronic underinvestment. Libra is now known for its funding of BIPOC-led movements by working at the grassroots to build power in communities, support democratic rights, and to center those most impacted by racial, gender, and environmental injustices. Libra believes that all people deserve to live free of systemic oppression, economic insecurity, and environmental harm. It is Libra’s desire to promote equity and level the playing field. To that end, trust is the cornerstone of Libra’s philanthropy efforts with annual grantmaking of approximately $28 million across three core Program Areas: Community Safety & Justice, Environmental & Climate Justice, and Gender Justice. Libra has grown in its impact as evidenced by the launch of the nearly $75 million Democracy Frontlines Fund (DFF) – a national aligned giving strategy to leverage millions of new dollars to fund Black organizing and disrupt traditional philanthropy. By trusting its grantees, who are closest to their communities and most equipped to build and implement solutions, Libra is able to be the most effective it can be in bringing real and systemic changes. Tao Rising’s philanthropy advisors support family members on their giving outside of the Libra Foundation endowment. This 2-person team works with family members to develop program priorities and strategies to launch new initiatives and execute giving plans across areas such as migrant justice, climate, regenerative agricultural practices, and cultural power. Annual grantmaking of over $15 million includes multi-year, general operating support across multiple donor advised funds. Libra and Tao Rising are unified in commitment to spurring the continual evolution of philanthropy to move resources – at scale – in a way that centers the needs and expertise of grantee partners. This shared trust-based approach to philanthropy is the cornerstone of all organizational giving, funder organizing in the field, and internal culture building. With Crystal’s retirement, there is excitement for what a new leader can bring to build off past successes in close partnership with the committed Board; skilled staff; and valued external partners. THE OPPORTUNITY In 2024 and beyond, Libra will uphold its support of organizations led by those most impacted by systemic oppression, equipping grantees with the tools needed to build and implement effective solutions. The next chapter of Libra’s development will sustain and deepen this strategy; continue to evolve the organization and its culture to support its important work; and partner with the Board of Directors in the evolution of its governance. Key strategic questions that Libra’s new leader will focus on include:
  • How can Libra continue to strengthen its reputation and impact in the field?
  •  What new strategic relationships should Libra build and/or utilize in service of its mission?
  • What specific organizational design, roles, capabilities, and skills are needed in 2024 and beyond to better live into Libra’s mission and ensure continued connection with Tao Rising?
  • How can all staff be better supported in continuing to strengthen and nurture an internal culture grounded in trust, honesty, empathy, and respect across Libra and Tao Rising?
  • How can the Board continue to build upon its shared values and cohesion while integrating new generations and/or expertise that ensure the long-term continuity of its collective work?

St. Paul, MN

Program Officer (2 positions), Northwest Area Foundation
The Organization – Northwest Area Foundation The Northwest Area Foundation (NWAF) is a private foundation established in 1934 by Louis W. Hill, son of the railroad entrepreneur James J. Hill, whose Great Northern Railway linked the Twin Cities of Minnesota to the emerging cities of the Pacific Northwest, Seattle, and Portland, OR. Currently, its assets are near $500MM, annual budget is around $25MM, and its staff consists of 20+ people. NWAF’s values represent not just who the Foundation is, but who it aspires to be, in decisions both big and small. The six organizational values are: Social Justice, Grantees Come First, Trust, Listen and Learn for Change, Heart, and Courage. The Foundation is committed to hiring individuals who contribute to a richly diverse workplace. Hiring decisions are guided by the Foundation’s commitment to support grantees, who work to build the entrepreneurial spirit, strong community ties, and untapped potential for Native Americans, communities of color, immigrants, refugees, and people in rural areas, all of which experience systemic barriers to thriving on their own terms. Position Overview The Northwest Area Foundation (NWAF) stands alongside changemakers in its region of eight states and 76 Native nations and funds work that leads to racial, social, and economic justice. Its region includes Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Idaho, Washington, and Oregon. The Foundation’s driving vision is that the people of its priority communities—including Native Americans, communities of color, immigrants, refugees, and people in rural areas—thrive on their own terms. A key motivation is a vision of a future in which the region’s rich culture of engagement and opportunity makes the eight-state region a prized place to visit, to invest, and live. As we all emerge changed from the recent and ongoing crises—a pandemic, economic turmoil, the upsurge for racial justice in the wake of the murder of George Floyd, and mounting pressures on NWAF’s priority communities—the Foundation continues to deepen its commitment to supporting grantee-led change. Internally, it’s made measurable progress to strengthen equity-centered systems designed to support a deeply engaged staff and build an inclusive culture and belonging. At this critical juncture in time, the Foundation seeks two Program Officers to join the program team led by Karla Miller, the Foundation’s Program Director. Program Officers are the Foundation’s primary relationship-holder with grantee partners seeking to reimagine and restructure unjust systems. This position is hybrid with in-person office time required at least two days a week specifically on Wednesdays and Thursdays for collaborative time with colleagues. Foundation staff may work from home or other work-friendly environments, on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays. OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE PROGRAM OFFICER As the primary relationship-holder with grantee partners, Program Officers (POs) work in close collaboration with other program staff, particularly the Program Director, on all aspects of the Foundation’s grantmaking and program-related investments, including both day-to-day operations and broader strategy development. More specifically, the POs contribute to programmatic ideas and participate actively in grantmaking and program-related investments (PRIs) by seeking, recommending, and managing grants and PRIs that support communities to thrive on their own terms. POs engage in this work in the following ways: Deploy Foundation resources in mission-supportive ways.
  • Participate in the program team’s annual goal-setting process.
  • Contribute to annual discussions about how and what the Foundation will fund, e.g., determining the focus of “targeted initiatives” that form the basis for a portion of the Foundation’s annual grantmaking output.
  • Conduct outreach and networking to find organizations that are aligned with the Foundation’s goals and mission and could be grantee partners. This also includes listening to organizations and responding to funding inquiries. Outreach and networking often require travel within NWAF’s eight-state region.
  • Based on grantee applications, POs put together written materials and verbal presentations for Foundation leadership, provide analysis for the Board, and offer recommendations for funding decisions.
  • Conduct outreach and networking with other funders to advocate for opportunities for grantee impact while also fostering learning and sharing about more just, equitable funding practices.
Partner with grantees to reimagine and restructure unjust systems.
  • Build and maintain relationships with current and prospective grantee partners. The nature of the relationship varies from grantee to grantee, but in general POs can expect to enter these relationships with candidness, curiosity, and trust.
  • Partner with grant applicants on all aspects of the proposal process. This includes supporting applicants in developing realistic proposals that are aligned with strategic funding priorities, within the scope of the program grantmaking budget, and within applicants’ capacity to deliver.
  • Serve as primary contact for a set of the Foundation’s 100+ active grants for the duration of their grants / investments. This involves staying connected to grantees’ work, having regular touchpoints via video/phone calls or in-person visits, reviewing grant reports, and providing thought partnership to grantees.
  • Offer non-monetary support to grantees, including thought partnership, advocating or championing grantee partners’ work to funders and others in the community, sharing tools or resources, and connecting them to others doing similar work.
  • Co-create opportunities to learn alongside partners. This involves identifying learning opportunities that support justice and systems change, and managing contracts with external consultants (e.g., researchers or evaluators) to carry out the work.
  • Incorporate grantee feedback into the Foundation’s internal processes and its strategy.
Support partners via the full suite of NWAF tools.
  • Manage PRIs (directly or indirectly with CDFI partners), which involves having upfront conversations with potential borrowers to determine if a PRI is the right tool for their organization’s needs.
