Program Officer

The CARE Fund will invest $50 million over five years in movement building for universal publicly supported care infrastructures that fuel economies, improve for the wellbeing of kids and families, create millions of good jobs, promote equity, and enable people with disabilities and older adults to live independently with safety and dignity.


The Program Officer will join the Fund as it transitions into a full-time staffing model. They will serve as the Fund’s primary U.S. grantmaking staff and will work with the Executive Director to develop all U.S. grantmaking and program work, so that the Fund has the desired strategic impact over the duration of its lifespan. Specifically, they will:

Develop targeted, impactful grantmaking strategies grounded in racial, gender, disability, and economic justice. The Program Officer will work with the Executive Director to develop, recommend, and implement domestic grantmaking strategies that include equitable policy implementation; advocacy for local, state, and national policy innovation; narrative and culture change; and field and power building. These strategies will build upon initial rounds of rapid response grantmaking and several months of strategy development by the funder partners. All work will be based squarely in movement building, while balancing the need to meet immediate opportunities with long term needs and capacities. The Program Officer will also lead all aspects of the grantmaking process, including development of solicitation and review of proposal materials; regular due diligence; and developing clear grant recommendations to the funder partners. As part of the grantmaking process, the Program Officer will work closely with Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors to meet its requirements for grantmaking and official board approval.
