ABOUT THE POSITION
Associate Director, Managed Organizations (Durham, NC; Chicago, IL; or Washington, DC)
An experienced operations professional with strong project management skills who will manage a portfolio of nonprofit projects to ensure they have the back-office infrastructure necessary to meet their programmatic goals
Associate Directors on the Managed Organizations (MO) team project manage -- and provide operational expertise to -- the nonprofit organizations Arabella manages that serve as fiscal sponsors, including the New Venture Fund, the Windward Fund, and the Hopewell Fund—all 501(c)(3) public charities—and the Sixteen Thirty Fund, a 501(c)(4). These managed nonprofit organizations house new and innovative public interest projects -- many focused on conservation, global health, and civic engagement -- as well as coordinate collaborative initiatives between donors and administer grants programs.
MO team members are deeply passionate about the role that smooth, efficient back-office organizational operations play in achieving social impact. Our colleagues are experienced and skilled in areas like non-profit (c3) and (c4) compliance, budgeting and finance, human resources, technology, and project management. Associate Directors play a central role as conductors of these projects – ensuring all the pieces flow together smoothly and that the projects have the infrastructure needed to meet their strategic and programmatic goals. As an example, advocacy-focused projects are a growing component of our work, so this would be a great role for someone interested in gaining experience in the operations and compliance side of nonprofit advocacy initiatives.
