Pilot House Associates, LLC (PHA) is a family office that provides services for the Hostetter family and to the Barr Foundation, which the family established in 1998. One of the core services in support of the family is PHA Philanthropy, the vehicle for the family’s personal philanthropic activity.
While each entity is funded by the Hostetter family, PHA is distinct from the Barr Foundation, which consists of a broader governance structure in addition to Barbara and Amos Hostetter, employs a sizeable professional staff devoted to grantmaking, and advances a set of long-term, strategic program priorities.
PHA Philanthropy exists to advance the family’s personal philanthropic objectives. These include supporting a set of institutions aligned with the family’s objectives, advancing targeted initiatives on issues of interest to the family, and assisting the second generation of the family to engage in philanthropy. In some instances, PHA may also pursue philanthropic activity that aligns with and advances the Barr Foundation’s work.
PHA is seeking a grants manager to join a small team of PHA staff devoted to supporting family philanthropy. As of June 2021, this team includes a senior advisor who also serves as president of the Barr Foundation and devotes a small portion of his time to PHA, along with a senior program officer and a program officer for international philanthropy.
PHA Philanthropy is currently overseen by the founders of the family office.
ABOUT THE POSITION
Reporting to the senior program officer, the grants manager will oversee the administration of the grants management database, facilitate grant payment and reporting processes, and support staff with due diligence and navigation of the grants management system.
