Founded in 1948, the San Francisco Foundation is one of the nation’s largest community foundations — a grantmaking public charity dedicated to improving life within a specific local region. Our mission is to mobilize resources and function as a catalyst for change to build strong communities, foster civic leadership, and promote philanthropy in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The following sections are designed based on the Results Based Leadership for Racial Equity Framework that the Foundation uses to accomplish our work.
The Director of Grants Administration (“Director”) leads a Team to create and implement effective grant-making strategies. The Director establishes and maintains strong and trusted relationships with Foundation Staff, the Board, and external partners to support grant-making strategies that effectively advance the Foundation’s Equity Agenda. In partnership with a cross-functional team, the Director helps position the Foundation to be a knowledge center and leader on areas that directly impact the community the Foundation serves. The Director is a key member of the Operations Team and will provide guidance to the Foundation’s Senior Leadership Team and Board and collaborates with external counsel on a variety of issues pertaining to grantmaking and the fiduciary responsibilities linked to the Foundations 501(c)(3) status.
