Grants Officer

Established in 1967, the foundation’s grantmaking has focused on helping to solve social and environmental problems at home and around the world, concentrating its resources on activities in education, the environment, global development and population, performing arts, and philanthropy, along with grants to support disadvantaged communities in the San Francisco Bay Area. With assets of around $15 billion, annual awards of grants and gifts recently totaled around $530 million. The foundation’s culture and approach to its work are informed by their guiding principles.


The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation is searching for two Grants Officers to join the Grantmaking, Learning, and Operations (GLO) team. The Grants Officers will be joining the foundation at an exciting inflection point in its history as it implements the learnings spurred by the continuing pandemic and the national reckoning with racial justice awareness that coalesced around the summer of 2020. Grants Officers will be joining a team that has been reimagined into a foundation-wide resource for ensuring that equity and transparency remain the centerpiece of their grantmaking efforts. Embedded with a program team(s) as their dedicated thought partner and resource, Grants Officers serve as a liaison between their program and the GLO team to shape relevant promising practices and process improvements from around the foundation. The foundation is seeking to add two members to the Grants Officers cohort, reporting to the Director, Grantmaking, Learning, and Operations.

The salary range for this role is $130,000 - $160,000 and includes a comprehensive benefits package. Salary offers are based on a candidate’s years of experience and the foundation’s practice of maintaining salary equity.
