New Alliance Foundation

Job Title: Director of Programs

Pay: $90,000 - $100,000 per year 

Based in New Haven, CT, NewAlliance Foundation (https://newalliancefoundation.org) is a $30 million private foundation that supports 41 Connecticut communities through grants to organizations in the arts, community development, health and human services, and youth and education. Since its inception in 2004, NewAlliance Foundation has approved approximately $30 million in grants, with a significant segment of our grant making targeted to READy for the Grade (https://readyforthegrade.org), an initiative we developed and continue to operate, that provides community-based literacy support to young, underserved children with the goal of helping them achieve academic and life success.

 

NewAlliance Foundation is dedicated to the needs of children and families in a manner that builds pathways to racial/sexual/gender equity, diversity, and inclusion. Because the Board of Directors is aware of the troubling state of racism and equity, we have reviewed our philanthropic commitments to ensure that we have a true roadmap to equity, inclusion, and diversity for those most in need.

 

In the fall of 2021, the Board and Staff engaged in a comprehensive strategic planning effort resulting in updated vision, mission, and values statements as well as a strategic framework to guide our aspirations and strengthen their impact:

  • Vision: A community where all people can reach their fullest potential.
  • Mission: To support organizations that advance literacy, build communities, and dismantle systems that perpetuate poverty and racism.
  • Values: Inclusive, accessible, fair, responsive and committed to racial equity.
  • Build a strong connection to a diverse community of stakeholders, where we provide funding;
  • Commit to funding that promotes literacy and community building, and that reduces poverty and racism;

The staff of 3 is small so the Foundation prizes versatility, flexibility, and teamwork to accomplish its important work. This is a great opportunity for an individual who is familiar with Connecticut, particularly New Haven; who wants to work closely with and make a difference in the community; who may have expertise in the issue areas of childhood literacy and K-12 education; and who is passionate about equity and access for all.
