About Sall Family Foundation

Sall Family Foundation (“SFF”), founded nearly 30 years ago, supports transformative change at the nexus between the environment, public health, and community resiliency.

SFF’s vision is turned into reality by a simple approach – backing leaders and organizations closest to the big challenges to the environment, public health, and poverty, empowering them to experiment, learn, and evolve as the planet around them changes. This is achieved through funding of both locally led civil society organizations and larger non-profit agencies with whom we encourage knowledge sharing and collaboration. This ensures community-driven approaches can leverage collective wisdom, scientific evidence, and scale efficiencies.

The Opportunity

A newly added position, the managing director will focus across all programming areas.  Reporting to the Executive Director and working closely with a fellow managing director and grantee partners, this new team member will play a critical role in shaping and driving a body of work that leverages what has been learned to date and create exciting new opportunities to improve lives and livelihoods around the world. The role brings together elements of program strategy and insight, research, impact measurement, and learning for both internal and external audiences. As such, this position offers a rare opportunity to play an essential part in shaping the SFF’s future direction.

Qualifications

A generalist grounded in science who exhibits a willingness to develop expertise without being “the expert” and who is also adept at working across a diverse array of issues would be well suited for the position.

We are seeking candidates with more than 10 years of professional experience working in a transdisciplinary manner across multiple SFF focus areas (environment, global public health, poverty alleviation, and science) in an international context. A Master’s Degree (or equivalent combination of experience/education) in science and experience that blends working with NGOs, civil society organizations, nonprofits, philanthropies or government agencies is highly desired. Experience working in family foundations or family offices is helpful but not required. 

The position is remote with a preference for candidates currently located on the east coast of the U.S. The ability to travel domestically, and in some cases, internationally, approximately 20% of the time is required.
