Position Overview:  This position is primarily responsible for managing all of the Foundation’s grantmaking programs and maintaining relationships with grantees.

The Foundation: The McCune Foundation’s mission is to be an agent of productive change in society by supporting the growth of social capital in communities. We fund projects that address critical issues in Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties by empowering and mobilizing excluded populations. We seek partners that are “doing with others” rather than “doing for others” – grassroots, bottom-up organizations in which “clients” are the initiators and involved in decision making. Equity and inclusion are core values in the organization and its community work.

Conducts outreach to grantees for these programs and schedules facilities, interpreters, catering, accommodations and local transportation, as needed.

Serves on funder or conference planning committees, as appropriate. From time to time, represents Foundation at the Foundation Roundtable of Santa Barbara County, Ventura County Funders Forum, conferences, and on funder panels.
