ABOUT NOVO FOUNDATION

The NoVo Foundation acts from the original meaning of philanthropy: the love of humanity.

Created in 2006 by Jennifer and Peter Buffett, NoVo is committed to advancing adolescent girls’ rights, ending violence against girls and women, advancing social and emotional learning, promoting local living economies, and supporting Indigenous communities.

We are a social justice foundation dedicated to catalyzing a transformation away from a world based on domination and exploitation, to one of partnership, collaboration, justice, and equity. We envision a world that operates on the principles of mutual respect, collaboration, and civic participation, thereby reversing the old paradigm predicated on hierarchy, violence, and the subordination of girls and women.

The scale of these ambitions guides our work with our grantee partners. Ours is both risk capital and patient capital; experimentation and new thinking are critical paths forward. Seeing the world as it is, and as it could be, inspires our shared work. Through all of our activities, we try to illuminate the possibility of a new paradigm, gather evidence of its existence, and establish pathways for its manifestation. We are humbled and honored to contribute to building a world based on compassion, justice, and love.

ABOUT THE ROLE - GRANTS SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR 

The Grants System Administrator supports all aspects of the grants management database environment by evaluating and implementing strategic solutions to enhance the grantmaking processes. With a focus on the user experience, including staff and grantee partners, the Grants System Administrator will ensure that our grantmaking systems are deployed and used successfully. NoVo Foundation uses foundationConnect, an application built on the Salesforce platform.

Reporting to the Director of Business Application Technology, the Grants System Administrator works and cross-trains with the Technology Associate and two Grants Managers to support efficient and effective grantmaking operations at the Foundation.

You will be responsible for understanding available applications of the grants management system, evaluating existing processes and workflows, implementing new configurations and updates, and improving the end-user experience of the grants management system, including the grantee application portal. You will also be responsible for looking after contract and invoice processing within foundationConnect as this central database is used for contract management and payment processing in support of NoVo’s grantmaking.

The grants management system has the potential to provide rich information on our work and has incredible potential to inform grantmaking practice and effectiveness when designed and managed thoughtfully. You will serve as the data hub, making sure systems are set up to collect the right information in the right format. You’ll take the lead in developing tools to analyze and display data to help the Foundation determine whether grantmaking is streamlined, effective, and strategic.
