Featured Nonprofit Job: Foundation Administrator

We've been on a California kick lately, as the last two featured nonprofit jobs we had were from the Golden State. That trend continues with a new job fro the Regional Parks Foundation.

The Oakland, Calif.-based organization is looking to hire a Foundation Administrator to provide assistance to the Foundation Program Manager in the ongoing mission of the Regional Parks Foundation. General responsibilities will include the following activities:

  • Maintenance of the Foundation's financial systems;
  • Bookkeeping and accounting activities;
  • Budgetary analysis;
  • Annual audit preparation;
  • Tax filing assistance;
  • Grants management;
  • Quarterly reviews of foundation-funded programs;
  • Donor relations; and,
  • Community outreach.
This opportunity is a temporary job, lasting 9-10 months. It is the Foundation's intention to hire the candidate full-time after the contract's end. Compared to our last two featured jobs, this position is more inviting to those with less experience. That doesn't mean the requirements aren't strict, however:
  • Knowledge of nonprofit accounting and database management (particularly Blackbaud Raiser's Edge);
  • Skilled in budgeting, reporting, analysis, and resource management;
  • First hand knowledge of fundraising and nonprofit best practices;
  • Effective written and verbal communication skills;
  • Experience in all aspects of grants management and program oversight;
  • Ability to research and write analytical and administrative documents; and,
  • Able to make timely and sound decisions, work independently without close supervision, and coordinate multiple tasks and priorities.
