Education Program Officer (KF)

The Kresge Foundation is one of the top 20 largest private foundations in the U.S. Our staff of over 100 employees works to expand opportunities in America’s cities for people with low incomes. We do this through grantmaking and social investing nationally in arts and culture, education, environment, health, human services and placed-based work in Detroit, Memphis, New Orleans, and other parts of the country.

Our state-of-the-art headquarters maintains an array of energy-efficient, water-conserving and health-promoting features. The foundation also operates an office in Detroit’s Midtown district.


The Program Officer for Education will assist in the design and implementation of a grantmaking program that seeks to increase postsecondary attainment in cities while eliminating gaps for low-income students and students of color, especially African Americans, Latinx, Native Americans, Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders, and other under-represented groups. The team seeks Program Officer candidates with a strong experience and a demonstrated commitment to low-income people, social justice, and the eradication of race-based and other equity gaps in education.
