The Longbrake Family Foundation
The Longbrake Family Foundation seeks a program director to shape and influence program design in the Foundation's new focus area.
Title: Program Director
Deadline: August 7
About the Longbrake Family Foundation
Driven by a deep commitment to faith, family, and community service, Bill and Martha Longbrake established the Longbrake Family Foundation (tLFF) in 1999 with a clear mission to support communities through grants that aid affordable housing, education, and Christian mission.
With a twenty-year track record of collective grantmaking experience, the Longbrake family recently determined a new strategic direction. Seeking to deepen trustee engagement and expand their impact, the Foundation has identified a shared interest in supporting nonprofit leaders who have a vision and passion to advance an organization or program and who would benefit from professional development to achieve their goals.
A newly created role, the program director will have the opportunity to shape and influence the program design and then bring it to life through thoughtful implementation and managing ongoing operations. The Foundation’s assets will increase in the coming years and the program(s) designed by this new leader have the potential to grow and scale significantly over time.
This is an entrepreneurial opportunity with significant autonomy to generate creative and innovative program ideas to express the family’s new focus area. The program director will work in close partnership with the Managing Trustee and leverage the knowledge and insights of the full board to develop a program that has the support of all family members.
The Ideal Candidate
The ideal candidate has a minimum of 5 to 7 years of progressively responsible, hands-on program management roles in philanthropy, community-serving nonprofit organizations, or a related field. Significant direct experience in leadership training or coaching—either running or participating in a leadership program—is preferred. The successful candidate will have strong emotional intelligence and interpersonal skills, combined with a facilitative leadership style.
