If this sounds like the kind of company you’d like to join, see our job openings below. American Philanthropic is an equal opportunity employer.
WHY WORK HERE
Everything we do is guided by our mission to strengthen civil society and we’re passionate about building strong partnerships with clients engaged in work that supports strong families, virtuous citizens, vibrant communities, durable institutions, and a flourishing nation.
Our employees have the opportunity to work in a company that’s in the trenches with its clients in the service of their incredible missions, helping them refine and grow their work and do more good.
We genuinely respect, trust, and enjoy working with our colleagues—and it shows. On any given day, you might find us engaged in healthy debate about the principles of a healthy democracy, extoling the merits of the Oxford comma during happy hour, swapping book recommendations, or challenging one another to a salsa-making competition.
We are grounded in virtue and guided by common sense and practical wisdom, not bureaucracy or trite slogans. We strive to model the “art of association” through our culture of vibrant communitarianism and prioritize courtesy, clarity, warmth, and humor in our personal and professional interactions and decisions.
We work hard and expect our colleagues to do the same but we recognize that while a strong work ethic is supremely important, so also is maintaining a healthy life that does justice to other goods, including those of family, faith, and community.
We take our work seriously, but not ourselves.
Our employees are given a high degree of ownership over their work and have significant freedom to execute responsibilities in line with their interests and talents. They have the opportunity to learn continually, stand out quickly, do work they’re proud of, and earn the respect and appreciation of their clients and colleagues. It’s hard work and sometimes chaotic, but exciting and rewarding.
We also believe that intellectually curious people make the best employees and we want our staff to continue developing the life of the mind and their own skills and interests—even if they relate loosely to their specific responsibilities. All employees are provided with a yearly stipend for print publications to enhance your learning, receive regular educational and professional development opportunities, and are encouraged to continue their learning and growth both in and outside of the workplace.
We are a hybrid remote/in-person company and have been from the start. Employees have the option to work out of one of our beautiful office spaces or to work remotely. Either way, there are regular opportunities for in-person interaction.
We also understand our staff have lives outside of work and we value the goods of family, faith, and community. We encourage you to take regular time off to refresh and renew, and trust you to organize your time off in a way that does not jeopardize the quality of your work, the sanity of your colleagues, or the health of your client relationships.
Competitive Compensation and Benefits:
We will pay competitive market rates and have a generous benefits package and holiday/PTO schedule that reflect our commitment to our employees, their families, and their communities. Benefits and perks include health insurance for employees and their dependents, employer contributions to health savings accounts, a 401(k) retirement program with employer matching, paid parental leave, dependent care spending accounts, a yearly stipend for books and print publications, support for employees’ volunteer board service, and more.
