New Position: Events & Partnerships, Manager, Stanford PACS

The School of Humanities and Sciences (H&S) is the foundation of a liberal arts education at Stanford. The school encompasses 23 departments and 25 interdisciplinary programs. H&S is home to fundamental and applied research, where free, open, and critical inquiry is pursued across disciplines. As the university’s largest school, H&S serves as the foundation of a Stanford undergraduate education no matter which discipline students pursue as a major. Graduate students work alongside world-renowned faculty to pursue and shape foundational research that leads to breakthroughs and discoveries that shed new light on the past, influence the present, and shape the future. Together, faculty and students in H&S engage in inspirational teaching, learning, and research every day.

The Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society (Stanford PACS) is a research center within the School of Humanities and Sciences at Stanford University. Stanford PACS develops and shares knowledge to improve philanthropy, strengthen civil society, and effect social change. It supports eight major research initiatives: Civic Life of Cities Lab, Digital Civil Society Lab, Effective Philanthropy Learning Initiative, Global Innovation for Impact Lab, Global Civil Society & Sustainable Development Lab, Project on Democracy and the Internet, and Recording Civic Action in China. Stanford PACS also publishes the Stanford Social Innovation Review (SSIR).

At Stanford PACS, our events play a vital role in communicating our work and our mission to the public. As the Events and Partnerships manager, you will be responsible for creating a strategic annual events calendar and lead all event planning. In order to be successful in this role, you should be a self-motivated individual, who is highly organized, creative, and detail oriented. You will also play a critical role in organizing the Philanthropy Innovation Summit, our signature biennial event with individual philanthropists. You will manage the design and production of all collateral, including brochures, rack cards, posters, etc. Under the guidance of the Director of Partnerships and Community, you will also help forge partnerships within and outside Stanford to further PACS’ mission. Thus, the Events and Partnerships Manager is a great role for someone interested in leading special events for nonprofit fundraising and partnership development efforts.

This is a 100% FTE, continuing position. This position will be based on the Stanford campus and will be considered for an option of telecommuting (hybrid of working on-site and off-site), subject to operational need.
