The Regional Foundation is a unique community foundation that traces its beginning to 1998 when it was created because of a merger of two financial services companies. The intent was to sustain historical philanthropic support for the community in the eastern part of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware which remain the defined geography of the Foundation.
The Foundation’s philanthropic focus is on community development, and particularly on support for the creation and implementation of comprehensive, resident-driven neighborhood revitalization efforts in low-income communities.
The Senior Program Officer supports the Regional Foundation’s programmatic and grantmaking services and is integral to the organization’s effort to improve lives in communities throughout 62 counties in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware, with particular attention to our most vulnerable residents. The position supervises the Foundation’s Program Officer (to be hired), and, together with the Executive Director, they will work to identify organizations and partners that align with the Foundation’s strategic focus.
