Program Manager, N2

Established in 2006 by Wendy and Eric Schmidt, The Schmidt Family Foundation (TSFF) works to restore a balanced relationship between people and planet. TSFF pursues its mission through three innovative and thoughtful strategies:  1) The 11th Hour Project; 2) the Impact Investment Program; and 3) Schmidt Marine Technology Partners (SMTP). The Schmidt Family Foundation is a private foundation with growing assets of over $1B and an impact investment portfolio of approximately $160M of AUM.


The 11th Hour Project / TSFF seeks an empathetic, entrepreneurial, and strategic Program Manager to help lead grantmaking for the N2 (nature + nurture) program. The N2 program supports organizations, initiatives, and movements that enable access and support for youth to thrive through nature and nurture. When we support all young people, particularly those of color, to lead and thrive through meaningful outdoor experiences we see new opportunities for broader social change. This program’s impact intersects the fields of youth development and organizing, the environmental and outdoors movements, and other systems that affect youth’s ability to thrive.

As this is a relatively new program, this position will be critical in shaping the program’s future direction. The relationship-oriented and values-aligned Program Manager will execute all aspects related to grant making subject to all existing policies and procedures of the Foundation. A high degree of flexibility, initiative, and willingness to roll up one’s sleeves in a dynamic, small-team environment are essential. This position will report to the N2 Program Lead and will be based at the Foundation’s offices in San Francisco with a hybrid work option to be remote some days a week.
