Senior Director, Conditions of Racial Equity


With leadership from Executive Director, Dennis Quirin, the Raikes Foundation has refocused its structure to establish new opportunities to invest in the conditions necessary for a racially just society and to build upon important existing initiatives in Impact Driven Philanthropy which seeks to influence donors to invest in ways that center racial equity and justice. With this exciting focus, NPAG and the Raikes Foundation invite nominations and applications for the newly formed leadership position of Senior Director, Conditions for Racial Equity (CoRE) Programs.

Reporting directly to the Executive Director, the Senior Director will first and foremost be a mission aligned partner, collaborator, and bridge builder who is committed to nurturing long term shifts in the sector to push the boundaries of traditional philanthropy, including inviting more funders to embrace the complexity of change at scale and to recognize the unique set of systemic barriers that marginalize BIPOC communities and limit their access to philanthropic capital. The Senior Director will leverage a strong existing portfolio of work and have the unique opportunity to co-create expanded investments and call on colleague foundations and field leaders to advance work and practices that intentionally shift power to impacted communities and champion racial equity and justice. And finally, the Senior Director will work collaboratively with the senior leadership team both at the foundation and in the executive office, North Forty, to identify, clarify, communicate, and manage the foundation’s programmatic and operational goals and to ensure that resources, processes, staffing, and structures are moving toward more equitable systems and impact.


The compensation range for this position has been set at $204K – $240K and commensurate with candidate experience.
