Foundations Officer I and Foundations Officer II

The Foundations Relations team will be hiring both a Foundations Officer I and a Foundations Officer II. The Foundations Officers are an integral part of a currently 14-person foundation relations team, which raises approximately one-quarter of Earthjustice’s contributed revenue. The team has grown and evolved tremendously in the last 5 years and is now in a new phase of growth, organized by functional expertise. The fundraisers on the team are supported by a writing team as well as a systems and operations team.

The Foundation Officers are an externally-facing role focused on raising grant support for Earthjustice - managing a portfolio of current foundation donors and prospects. While the Officer I role will primarily manage an existing and robust mid-level portfolio and implement a streamlined stewardship model, the Officer II will take a more entrepreneurial approach both within and outside Earthjustice and the team, leveraging relationships to further enhance Earthjustice’s presence and supporter base among institutional donors. Both roles report to Senior Foundation Officers on the Team. Both roles will excel at collaboration, working closely with attorneys, communications and policy staff, and the entire development department to develop and implement effective strategies for meeting revenue goals. The Officer II will also work closely with the president, vice presidents of litigation, and senior vice president of development with the guidance of the team leadership.
