About the Organization
At the Pisces Foundation, we believe if we act now and boldly, we can quickly accelerate to a world where people and nature thrive together. We support innovators who know what it takes and are doing what’s necessary to have clean and abundant water, a safe climate, and kids with the environmental know-how to create a sustainable world. By mainstreaming powerful new solutions, we will spark immediate gains and lasting benefits for people and nature.
The Foundation seeks a Program Officer to lead its Climate and Energy Program. This position reports to the President and will play an important role in a dynamic, growing philanthropy. The Climate and Energy Program focuses on bolstering reductions of carbon dioxide by decreasing emission of all pollutants that contribute to climate change. To accomplish this goal, the Program’s grants and other activities focus on a powerful class of climate “super pollutants” including methane, black carbon, and HFCs. The more quickly we start to reduce all of the pollutants driving climate change, the more likely it is we’ll have the safe, stable climate our communities need to stay healthy, vibrant places.
