 Philanthropy Missouri is currently looking to expand our team. The organization is hiring for an Outreach Lead and Programs & Services Lead. Either position can be part time or made to be full time when paired with communications. 


Open Position Details: 

Outreach Lead: In 2021, Philanthropy Missouri unveiled a new name and commitment to serve the entire state of Missouri. Outreach work was successfully piloted in Southwest Missouri. Operating primarily out of Kansas City, the Outreach Lead will work collaboratively with a small team, particularly the Vice President and CEO, to support expansion to build a network of funders interested in strengthening philanthropy and promoting community impact in Missouri through networking, education, and collaboration. The Outreach Lead will start with a focus on Kansas City and will also need to be able to travel throughout the state to support Membership development statewide.

Programs & Services Lead: Operating primarily out of St. Louis, our Programs & Services Lead manages our virtual and in-person programming activities, including speaker coordination, planning, implementation, and follow up.
