It’s an exciting time at Headwaters Foundation and we’re hiring a Community Partnerships Director.

The chance to help change the state of health in western Montana makes you jump out of your seat with joy. You are excited to think in new ways and try new approaches to make this happen. You have masterful community organizing skills and see yourself as a partner and resource to community. You love making connections between people and ideas and systems. You can implement programs while synthesizing what you’re learning and make changes as you go. You like our approach to philanthropy. It’s called trust-based philanthropy and means we fund and support the mission of great local organizations; we don’t make them fit ours.

You might also have:
Deep experience working in rural and urban communities in western Montana. You understand cultural and political dynamics and how systems work, have broken down or don’t exist in different places. You might also have extensive experience working in community-based organizations. You understand how funding has worked and could be better.
