Growald Family Fund is a high-impact non-profit venture philanthropy with a focus on climate change. Similar to investors building a venture capital portfolio, we invest our grants in a portfolio of organizations poised to create an outsized impact on carbon emissions and climate change. We partner with leading-edge foundations, global academic institutions and other groups to help them grow to scale. In addition to our portfolio of grantees, we support efforts to further the field and build networks for collective impact. We are seeking a part-time program assistant to support the GFF team with program & grants support, scheduling, and event planning. This is an excellent opportunity to gain valuable experience in grants administration while working alongside the staff of an established nonprofit foundation. Growald Family Fund is committed to the principles of inclusion and diversity and we strongly encourage women, minorities, individuals with disabilities, and veterans to apply.
