Pride Foundation is conducting a competitive nationwide search for the newly established position of Director of Programs.
Pride Foundation is a donor-supported community foundation that inspires a culture of generosity by connecting and strengthening organizations, leaders, and students who are advancing equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people and their families in the Northwest.
The Director of Programs will provide strategic vision and leadership for Pride Foundation’s programmatic efforts throughout the Northwest. The Director will oversee all aspects of grants and scholarships across five states as well as develop strategies for special initiatives. The ideal candidate would bring a creative and thoughtful approach to program development while maintaining an appreciation of Pride Foundation’s history, legacy, and commitment to social justice philanthropy.
This position reports to the Executive Director. This position directly supervises the Grants Program Officer and the Educational Programs Officer as well as oversees program staff interns. This position will be housed in the Seattle office, but requires some travel throughout our five-state region (Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington). Pride Foundation has a $3 million operating budget with 17 full-time employees and several student interns. It is governed by a board of 22 volunteers.
