Endowment Announces Staff Opening: Finance Director
The U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities (Endowment) today announced the addition of a staff position in its Greenville, SC, headquarters. The role—Finance Director—will report to the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and aid the Endowment with financial accounting, federal and private award administration, and annual audit procedures as the organization works to keep America’s forests healthy and productive for the full range of their environmental, societal and economic benefits.
“The Endowment has always made a commitment to keep a lean, talented staff to accomplish our broad body of work,” says Endowment President and CEO Carlton Owen. “As good stewards of our funds, we have maintained a small staff size despite our growing programmatic portfolio. With a substantial increase in projects and programs—including exciting new Federal partnerships—it is vital that we grow the team, especially in the area of finance.”
The Finance Director will engage with the CFO, Program Officers, and other Endowment staff to ensure efficient and compliant program administration. The position will ultimately further the Endowment’s mission of advancing systemic, transformative and sustainable change for the health and vitality of the nation’s working forests and forest-rich communities.
