Senior Communications Officer

Founded in 1928, EBCF was one of the nation’s first community foundations. Named the country’s “boldest” community foundation in 2019 by Inside Philanthropy, EBCF is dedicated to employing innovative strategies to advance an inclusive, fair, and just East Bay through four core program strategies. 


  • Arts and Culture for Social and Racial Justice 
  • Capacity Building with a Racial Equity Lens 
  • Community Organizing, Power Building, and Movement Building 
  • Fostering Inclusive Economic Models 


With a strategic regional focus on Alameda and Contra Costa counties, EBCF works towards its framework of “A Just East Bay,” which includes grantmaking, impact investing strategies, and a new way of taking steps to build solidarity among donors and community. We commit to employing all of our resources in service to our mission and push beyond industry norms to offer uniquely impactful opportunities for our fund advisors to help build economic equity for all.


Join EBCF in eliminating structural barriers, advancing racial equity, and transforming political, social, and economic outcomes for all who call the East Bay home for generations to come.



We’re seeking a collaborative communications powerhouse who has a strong racial justice and social justice background to join our team.


As a key storyteller for EBCF, the Senior Communications Officer will play a vital role in illustrating our bold approach to philanthropy and engaging a diverse range of audiences, including donors, fund advisors, institutional partners, funders, grantee partners, professional financial advisors, board members, and staff. As we approach our centennial in 2028, you will help shape the narrative around our history and its contemporary relevance.


As our lead content strategist and producer, the Senior Communications Officer works closely with the other members of the Marketing & Communications team to advise teams throughout the foundation and create a cohesive narrative for our audiences.


If you’ve built your career creating content that moves hearts and minds and operate with a growth mindset, you’ll find a good fit on our team. This is a great opportunity to apply your communications expertise to a philanthropic organization creating a new way of partnering with the entire social sector.
