$65,000 - $80,000For the right candidate who helps advance the organization, this position can quickly evolve into a director-level position with increased compensation.

Company Description

Farming Hope is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. We are a farm-to-table culinary job training program that fosters community leaders in the food system. We offer transitional employment and on-the-job training in gardening and cooking through our social enterprise restaurant at Manny’s in San Francisco’s Mission District and our urban training garden in the Western Addition neighborhood. Our apprentices overcome major barriers to employment, primarily experiencing homelessness or being formerly incarcerated.


In this role, you will see tangible progress toward building a model for empowerment through food. Work here feels like being part of a team dedicated to fighting our region’s devastating crises of homelessness and lack of community. You’ll learn from our apprentices, while teaching and leading staff to create change that inspires and informs our growing ecosystem of partners.


Growing and serving food allows our apprentices to give back to their city. We’re all hungry to give back and belong. Learn more about our apprentices and organization at farminghope.org.



Job Description

The primary job duties of the Operations & Development Manager are managing the day-to-day operations and growth of Farming Hope, as well as co-leading fundraising. We are starting to plan a second, larger social enterprise restaurant and community space, tentatively opening in 2021, and this role is second-in-command for the expansion. Working closely with the Executive Director and Board, responsibilities include co-planning fundraising events, leading back office operations, and coordinating relevant external communications. This role combines the exciting, public facing work of Fundraiser with the critical day-to-day office support of a Business Administrator.


Given Farming Hope is a small nonprofit, this job requires balancing a variety of responsibilities. For the right candidate who helps advance the organization, this position can quickly evolve into a director-level position with increased compensation.

Responsibilities include but are not limited to

  • Pitch event sponsorships to corporations and foundations
  • Co-write and edit grants

Candidate Qualifications 

  • Self-starter: To grow from small nonprofit to scalable social enterprise, the organization requires a highly motivated and ambitious individual leading business operations and scaffolding our success.
  • Multi-tasker: This position requires wearing several hats each week. Are you experienced advancing multiple projects toward a collective mission?
  • Experience, not just passion: Do you bring knowledge of business management, social enterprise management, or fundraising? We need a candidate able to teach us, and take the lead on their own learning advancement.
  • Ideal candidate will have 3+ years experience in relevant fields.
  • Highly organized: Are you able to create and manage systems that new employees can easily learn? As we scale, we need a leader who can create a sustainable, internal operating structure.
  • Commitment to transformation: We want to empower those experiencing poverty to be community leaders; we want our food system to be more sustainable for all; we want our staff to think differently about charity and justice. Sound like something you want to help build?
