Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems Funders (SAFSF) seeks a full-time Program Director to play a critical role in developing the timely and relevant content that brings value to our network of philanthropic and investment funders who support sustainable agriculture and food systems work. Program content is delivered through online and in-person events, webinars, learning cohorts, and other venues as appropriate.  The Program Director will work in close collaboration with other members of the Program Team and with funder planning committees to develop, execute, and promote SAFSF’s programs.

Strong candidates for this position will excel at working collectively with a team, quickly organizing and synthesizing information from many sources, setting vision and strategy, and executing tasks to reach goals and objectives. This position includes both leadership and support responsibilities. There will be considerable opportunities for professional growth and education with regard to philanthropy, agriculture, and food systems issues. The Program Director must demonstrate dedication to the values promoted by SAFSF: collaboration, equity, respect, stewardship, and integrity. Reliability, flexibility, a commitment to lifelong learning, and a sense of humor are strongly valued.

All SAFSF employees work remotely; candidates may live anywhere within the United States.
