LGCN Program Director
Latino Community Foundation in San Francisco, California
Date Posted 04/28/2021
Philanthropy-Grant Writing
Employment Type Fulltime
Application Deadline Open until filled

The mission of the Latino Community Foundation (LCF) is to unleash the civic and economic
power of Latinos in California. We are the only statewide foundation solely focused on investing
in Latino leaders. We fulfill our mission by building a movement of civically engaged
philanthropic leaders, investing in Latino-led organizations, and increasing civic and political
participation by Latinos in California.

Our work is driven by our core values. Among them is trust that community leaders who are
closest to the issues are best suited to lead the necessary solutions to drive lasting change. We
also committed to leading from a place of strength— highlighting the assets and diverse
contributions of Latinos in California. We are at a pivotal stage of growth.

LCF leads the largest network of civically engaged Latino philanthropists in the country and has
established the first-ever Latino Nonprofit Accelerator. LCF is leveraging its unique role as a
grantmaker, convener, and advocate to activate a network of changemakers committed to
increasing civic engagement and economic mobility for Latino families. Please visit the
www.latinocf.org for more information.

LCF is a fast-paced work environment with high expectations for excellence and integrity. We
encourage individuals who are highly entrepreneurial, driven by a sense of justice, and lead by
lifting others to apply.

ABOUT THE POSITION: The Latino Community Foundation (LCF) is seeking a dynamic,
visionary, and experienced leader to serve as Director of our signature initiative, the Latino
Giving Circle NetworkTM (LGCN). The LGCN inspires Latino philanthropy by building a
community of leaders who are driven by a deep sense of justice and generosity.

The Director will lead the programmatic vision and growth of this initiative. Comprised of 500
members in 20 Latino Giving Circles across the State, the Director will manage the day-to-day
operations of the initiative and help amplify the impact and lessons learned on a national scale.
LCF has built-in the sustainability of this initiative by creating a powerful Leadership Council
made up of 50 leaders from the network. To ensure efficiency, smart growth, and robust data
analysis, donor management is embedded into LCF’s Salesforce platform. LCF is leading an
evaluation of Latino philanthropy in partnership with Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to
assess the impact of the model on civic leadership and community wellbeing.

The LGCN is an integral pillar of LCF’s vision for change, not charity. Giving Circle members
serve as influential ambassadors and advocates for grassroots Latino-led nonprofits. LGCN
members have served as board members for Latino-led organizations lending their time, talents,
and treasures to increase the reach and deepen the impact of these organizations. They have also
written op-eds, led voter engagement efforts, and have run for office to build civic power and
shape the narrative of Latinos as leaders and philanthropists.

The Latino Giving Circle Network is successful because it is rooted in LCF’s values of love,
trust-based philanthropy, and family. Our grantmaking is focused on people, not process. Our
gatherings are rooted in joy, generosity, and the celebration of Latino culture.
