Knight Foundation seeks Part-Time Assistant – Community and National Initiatives

Knight Foundation works in 26 communities in the United States. Philadelphia is one of them. As a national foundation with deep local roots, Knight works locally and then shares successful ideas across communities when and where it makes sense. We are seeking a part-time assistant (25 hours per week) to help drive that work in Philadelphia. As part of the community and national initiatives team, you’ll work closely with our director/Philadelphia.

Key responsibilities:

  • Administering and organizing the Philadelphia office, including light phone duty, mail, supplies and liaising with Miami headquarters.
  • Scheduling and coordinating the director’s calendar and meetings.
  • Coordinating events (e.g. venue, catering, logistics, A/V) and providing occasional on-site support for small in-office meetings and larger community meetings and information sessions.
  • Working closely with the director on the Philadelphia office budget and submitting all Philadelphia and director expenses to Miami headquarters.
  • Making travel and other reservations for the director.
  • Updating database information in the foundation’s grants management, contacts and budget systems.
  • Crafting correspondence related to queries, proposals, grants, rejections, payments and other matters.
  • Organizing, preparing and disseminating documents.

Application Deadline: August 16, 2019
