Peggy and Jack Baskin Foundation seeks Full-tim Executive Assistant/Program Associate

Organization Overview: The Peggy and Jack Baskin Foundation was founded in 2008 to create and support strategies for eliminating obstacles facing marginalized populations in order to reach gender and racial equity. The Foundation focuses on the following program areas: gender equity and intersectional feminism, in an effort to improve the lives of women and girls (including cis women and girls, trans women and girls, and nonbinary, gender nonconforming, and genderqueer people); and education, in an effort to ensure equal access to education for all community members. The Foundation currently awards grants to nonprofit organizations that serve people and communities in the Monterey and Santa Cruz Counties (also known as the tribal lands of the Amah Mutsun, Ohlone, Chalon, Awaswas, and Esselen nations), and occasionally the greater San Francisco Bay Area.
