Bush Foundation
Position Announcement: Grantmaking Officer (Native nations focus)

We’re looking for a community-minded, intellectually curious and collaborative person to join the Foundation’s grantmaking team as a Grantmaking Officer. This is a great opportunity for someone with deep understanding of and experience with Native culture, history and communities to support the people and communities in this area. We are a group of people who are passionate about learning, equity and making the most impact we can in this vast and varied region. If this sounds like you, we invite you to consider applying!

Background
The Bush Foundation is a private foundation based in St. Paul, Minnesota. The Foundation was established in 1953 by 3M executive Archibald Bush and his wife, Edyth. Today, we invest in great ideas and the people who power them in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and the 23 Native nations that share the geography. We work to inspire and support creative problem solving – within and across sectors – to make our region better for everyone. Learn more about us at BushFoundation.org, including our work in Native nations and our commitment to addressing racial wealth gaps.

Job Purpose
This position will join with four other grantmaking officers (GOs) to ensure the Foundation is finding and considering the highest potential ideas from communities throughout the region and making decisions grounded in understanding of community needs and capacities.
The GOs work across all of the Foundation’s program areas to assist in the development of strategy as well as outreach and promotion of grant opportunities and grantee selection. The specific focus of this position is to strengthen the ties between the Foundation and its partners across the 23 Native nations and communities that share geography with Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota.

Core Responsibilities
Work collaboratively to ensure we are open and responsive to the communities:
• Manage and staff the ‘front door’ for the Foundation, including office hours and a hotline that can respond to a wide range of inquiries about funding opportunities such as organizational priorities, community initiatives and conversations about how to support individual leadership growth and development.
Review and research proposals to select grantees and fellows:
• Review incoming applications for all programs, apply program criteria using independent
judgement and work collaboratively with other team members to test assumptions and
conclusions.
• Conduct community due diligence and prepare write-up analysis.
• Decide which proposals should be moved forward for further consideration.
Find new ideas and people where investment might have a big impact:
• Conduct targeted community outreach to identify ideas and people that might be strong
candidates for Community Innovation, Bush Fellowship or other potential Foundation
investments and partnerships.
• Stay informed on key issues in communities across the region, share learnings on big
events/issues with all staff.
• Share what you know about collaborative problem-solving and community engagement
practices in both internal and external settings.
Be an active and engaged partner with other Foundation staff:
• Review, develop, implement and improve team workflows and projects. Work with staff
across the Foundation to ensure coordination between programs and teams.
• Contribute to cross-foundation work and learning that advances the Foundation’s overall
strategic goals. This would include activities like participating in ad hoc work teams, equity
projects, strategic initiative work and organization-wide workshops and committees.
• Actively demonstrate core organizational values in performing all duties.

Key Characteristics and Qualifications
• At least five years’ experience in public, nonprofit or related private sector field, preferably with some of that experience leading community engagement, leadership development and/or public policy activities.
• Experience with some or all of the 23 Native nations and Native communities in this region is required since a major emphasis for this position is working with Native people and communities. That experience could be in a wide range of roles, including with tribal
government, grass roots community groups and/or Native non-profits.
• Significant experience building and maintaining effective partnerships in the region served by the Bush Foundation. Familiarity with the major issues, context and history of the people and communities in this region is a plus.
• Demonstrated skills with reviewing grants and proposals, familiar with analyzing proposals to see how they fit with the criteria for the programs and offering feedback on how they can be improved.
• Enjoys and is good at collaborative decision making, comfortable with offering and explaining own point of view, listening to diverging opinions and adjusting perspective.
• Strong written and verbal communication, interpersonal, time and project management skills in order to effectively coordinate work assignments and relationships in the field and across multiple teams.
