Katz Amsterdam Foundation
March 18, 2021
The Katz Amsterdam Foundation is looking for our very first Grants Director to join our team.
Our foundation has spent our first few years striving to be a catalyst for eliminating the stigma of mental illness, increasing access to behavioral and mental healthcare and improving the quality of care for all. We believe that emotional well-being is essential for people and communities to thrive. Our focus for this work has been mountain resort communities, in some of the most iconic locations across North America.
We recognize that people and communities of color in this country are greatly impacted by systemic injustices which hinders their ability to recognize their full potential. In response to this reality, our Foundation is launching a new strategic initiative to address racial and social injustice at a national level.
Our Grants Director will play a vital role in standing up this work. We value teamwork and partnership in driving our mission and strategic priorities forward. You’ll join a small but ambitious team who wants to add a teammate who is different than us and will complement our strengths. We are looking beyond the right fit, to find the right person to move our mission forward.
Consider the following questions, you just might be the person we’re looking for.
- Do you have a passion for helping people improve their mental and behavioral health?
- Do you believe there are injustices against people of color in this country that need to be repaired?
- Are you skilled at measuring and articulating the impact of the work organizations do?
- Does communicating with your teammates and clients come easily to you?
- Are you comfortable engaging with people from all sorts of cultural backgrounds?
- Does writing come easy to you?
- Are you able to synthesize lots of information into clear and condensed summaries?
- Do you like working in start-up environments?
- Are you motivated to take on new challenges?
While we value your educational and academic achievements, we want to focus on the great work experiences you’ve had in this field. We need our Grants Director to be technically sound, innovative, and a strategic thinker, with multiple years of demonstrated experience in nonprofit grant management or foundation work. Our Grants Director is expected to provide leadership for all grants made by the Katz Amsterdam Charitable Trust.
You’ll get to work with a variety of innovative nonprofits serving urban youth, advancing racial and social justice priorities and supporting behavioral health.
And one more thing, we are based in Colorado, but you don’t have to be. We will support you if you want to work remotely, but there will be some travel involved. You’ll get to visit some remarkable locations to engage with our stakeholders.
If this sounds like an exciting opportunity to explore, then apply today and let’s explore together how we can help you become the person who excels in this role.
The Katz Amsterdam Foundation believes that long-standing systemic inequities in our culture continue to harm already marginalized populations in our country, especially people of color. In order to begin to repair these injustices, we believe that these communities must be centered in the work we do. We strongly encourage applications from people of color.
