You’re excited about the mission of the Jewish Federation in Seattle. You hold the big vision and the day-to-day details in mind simultaneously.

You want to work with a team of professionals that center its work on our organizational values: collaboration, integrity, respect, innovation, and community.

As the Foundation & Administrative Coordinator you will serve as a “utility player” processing grants and investment instructions, entering payroll, and being at the front end of Federation’s donation recording process.

You will have the opportunity to learn about a wide-range of functions including Jewish philanthropy, Board of Directors & committee support, human resources, and the office operations of a thriving Jewish Federation. You will work with an accomplished and diverse team where each individual is committed to their own development as well as to that of the team.
