Portfolio Manager, Exceptional Educators

Overdeck Family Foundation (“the Foundation”) was founded in 2011 by John and Laura Overdeck with the goal of providing all children the opportunity to unlock their potential. The Foundation focuses exclusively on enhancing education, funding efforts both inside and outside of school in the areas of early childhood, informal STEM education, and K-9 programs that include supporting educators and student-centered learning environments. Our grantmaking and strategic support focus on unlocking innovation, evidence, and growth opportunities for organizations and researchers that are committed to accelerating key academic and socioemotional outcomes for all children. The Foundation funds both direct impact organizations and ecosystem efforts that clear the path to scale for our grantees and the work that they do. 


The Exceptional Educators portfolio within the Foundation focuses on increasing the retention of effective educators in K-9 so that more children have access to teachers who empower them to reach their full potential.

The Foundation is seeking a full-time Portfolio Manager to lead the Exceptional Educators portfolio. Reporting to the Associate Program Director, and managing an Associate Program Officer, the Portfolio Manager will work collaboratively to refine and clarify the investment strategy for the portfolio, build and nurture relationships across the K-9 ecosystem (with a primary focus on empowering educators), and use a scientific method approach to hypothesize and sharpen strategies to support early stage and growth stage ventures to scale, cost effectively and sustainably, to improve academic and socioemotional outcomes for kids. Given the nature of this work, the Portfolio Manager should expect 10-20 percent of this role to include travel for grantee site visits, conferences, and funder meetings.
