Portfolio Manager, Inspired Minds

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 Foundation is seeking a full-time Portfolio Manager to lead the Foundation’s Inspired Minds portfolio, which seeks to build the next generation of creative problem-solvers by expanding access to engaging and challenging STEM learning experiences that deepen family engagement, build STEM mindsets, and inspire students with joyful and rigorous learning. 

Reporting to the Associate Program Director, and managing an Associate, the Portfolio Manager will work collaboratively to refine investment strategy, build and nurture relationships across the out-of-school STEM ecosystem, and support early stage and growth stage ventures, aiming to cost effectively and sustainably scale programs that 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.
