Job description:

The Leon Levine Foundation:
Are you ready to work every day to help individuals and families living in poverty reach self-sufficiency? Do you believe in the power of community to lift each other up and give meaning to lives? What if work/life balance could mean spending your time at work supporting your life’s values?
Across the Carolinas our team members meet with leading thinkers and doers working to create opportunities in the areas of education, healthcare, human services and Jewish values. Through our grantmaking process, you will evaluate and empower successful nonprofits and leaders. You will advance your connections and expertise, while growing your strategic thinking and problem-solving skills. Working primarily in our healthcare mission area, you will have an opportunity to ensure all Carolinians have equitable access to quality healthcare, meaningful support services and a network of providers committed to efficiently coordinating care for underserved patients. Working collaboratively with teammates in the fields of human services and education, you will help create pathways to permanent self-sufficiency. Last year, we made over $30 million in grants to nonprofits across the Carolinas, including over $9 million in healthcare.
Every day, you will be surrounded by smart, motivated, collaborative teammates with varied life experiences who have been successful in other industries and decided to dedicate their working years to lifting up others. Come join some of the most dedicated philanthropists in our region in our traditional yet dynamic setting. After celebrating our first 40 years of giving, join us as we look forward to many more decades of impact at one of the largest private grantmaking foundations in the mid-Atlantic.
We seek employees from diverse backgrounds, faiths, and life experiences to join our team located Charlotte, NC. It is critical to our success that this diversity is celebrated and can truly flourish. We continue to work to create an equitable workplace where all good ideas rise to the top.
