About the Role

We’re looking for a Grants & Monitoring Officer to join our Philanthropic Services Team, who empower the Founders Pledge community by providing expertise, innovative solutions and guidance on effective giving, to enable high-impact philanthropy. Along with our existing Grants & Monitoring Officers, you’ll support the administrative and operational aspects of our international, high-volume grant-making process. You’ll also partner with other teams to improve processes, provide tools and resources, and deliver impact. Reporting into our Philanthropic Services Operations Lead based in San Francisco, your primary responsibility will be making grants to end-user charities globally.

You’ll be responsible for:
* Processing grants, grant agreements and payments efficiently and accurately, according to stated service levels. This will include researching grant requests, verifying organizations eligibility and ensuring rigorous accounting of grant payments alongside our Finance team. 
* Maintaining a high level of knowledge of Founders Pledge due diligence policies, practices, and procedures and identifying any additional research required. You’ll also suggest ways to improve our processes. 
* Helping to maintain our legal and compliance documentation.
* Adding contacts, charities, grants and transfers to Salesforce (our CRM).
* Writing and drafting emails to grant recipients, and on occasion member-facing communications.
* Provide subject matter expertise in specific, assigned grant interest areas, for example US-specific charitable regulations such as expenditure responsibility and/or equivalency determination or UK-specific charitable regulations around safeguarding policies.

Although your main focus will be grantmaking, you’ll also be involved with a variety of different best-practice, cross-functional projects. You’ll use your grantmaking expertise to guide other teams in finding the best solutions for our members and teams will consult with you to ensure their procedures align with top-class grantmaking.
