We are pleased to share some exciting news with you: The Surdna Foundation is expanding its program team. We are seeking three new Program Officers to join the Foundation.
Created by John E. Andrus in 1917, the Surdna Foundation is a family foundation based in Manhattan. The Foundation seeks to foster just and sustainable communities in the United States - communities guided by principles of social justice and distinguished by healthy and sustainable environments, strong local economies, and thriving cultures.
Surdna recently embarked on an important effort to refine our mission and priorities. Among our new goals, we seek to clearly articulate our strategies and use communication effectively to support them. We are also embracing our role as a learning organization - consistently assessing the results of our work, gathering important learning, and sharing these lessons. Above all, we seek to have a greater impact in fostering sustainable and just communities.
To achieve these ambitious goals, we have created three new program officer positions to strengthen the capacity of our program team. Each of Surdna's grantmaking programs - Sustainable Environments, Strong Local Economies, and Thriving Cultures - currently seeks to add one new Program Officer. This is an important period of change for Surdna and an exciting time to join the Foundation.
The Surdna Foundation has retained Gumbs + Partners, an executive search firm, to conduct the searches for these three new staff members. For job descriptions and information about how to apply, please click below.
