The San Francisco Foundation is now recruiting for the 2016-2018 Multicultural Fellowship Program. This is a two-year, full-time program that aims to increase diversity in the philanthropic, nonprofit, and public sectors.
The San Francisco Foundation is about to implement our newly-developed regional equity strategy, focused on building a more equitable Bay Area, which defines the direction and approach of the Foundation’s work while building from and maintaining our mission and values. As integral staff of our Program Department, incoming Fellows will participate in the Foundation’s early steps towards implementing our regional equity strategy.
Successful candidates are emerging professionals of diverse cultural backgrounds who show promise and passion to create significant social change. The Fellowship provides challenging work and professional development experiences, on-the-job training, and opportunities to enhance skills in grantmaking, convening, strategy development, research, and project management, all within the civic, political, and economic contexts of the Bay Area, and in support of our equity strategy. Additionally, Fellows benefit from networking, mentoring, trainings, seminars, professional conferences, and interactions with a wide array of nonprofit, community, government, and philanthropic leaders.
The deadline to apply is Monday, March 28, 2016 at 5:30 p.m. PST.
