Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors (RPA) is a nonprofit organization that currently advises on and manages more than $400 million in annual giving by individuals, families, corporations, and major foundations. Continuing the Rockefeller family's legacy of thoughtful, effective philanthropy, RPA remains at the forefront of philanthropic growth and innovation, with a diverse team led by experienced grantmakers with significant depth of knowledge across the spectrum of issue areas. Founded in 2002, RPA has grown into one of the world's largest philanthropic service organizations and, as a whole, has facilitated more than $3 billion in grantmaking to nearly 70 countries. RPA also serves as a fiscal sponsor for more than 100 projects, providing governance, management, and operational infrastructure to support their charitable purposes.

Following twenty years of successful growth, we are ready to appoint our first, dedicated Director of Europe.

We seek an experienced leader and self-starter, with a deep passion for RPA’s mission and values, and a commitment to excellence. Our first Director of Europe will have experience and networks across the philanthropic sector in Europe as well as commercial drive, and a commitment to providing exceptional client service.

We believe that philanthropy can help create a better world; we make decisions that center people and communities; we believe that philanthropy has a responsibility to pursue equity; we uphold the highest standards of integrity and trust; we are committed to learning and sharing knowledge.
