About the Role
Tiger Foundation is seeking a full-time Program Associate to work closely with our small program team in New York City. The Program Associate manages communications for senior leadership and with board members and assists with significant preparation of board-facing materials for ~18 board meetings per year across multiple portfolio committees. Successful management of those activities ensures that the team can effectively focus on grant reviews for our portfolio of 60-75 nonprofit partners. We seek a proactive individual who is well organized with very strong attention to detail and the ability to manage multiple time-sensitive projects simultaneously. While there are significant administrative aspects to this position, the Program Associate will also observe all stages of grantmaking and attend all board meetings (18 meetings/year, typically from 5-7pm on Tuesday evenings). It is an ideal opportunity for an individual open to learning the Foundation’s funding areas and grantmaking strategy.
Responsibilities may evolve over time. Potential additional activities include research projects, intern management, and creation of informative materials for board meetings such as PowerPoint decks that provide contextual information on Tiger’s funding areas and analytical tools which illustrate grantees’ outcomes or financial data.
