Position Overview
During the 27th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27), The Rockefeller Foundation announced more than $11 million in the first bundle of grants to ten organizations scaling Indigenous and regenerative agriculture practices around the world. The evidence makes clear the central role food systems can play in mitigating climate change. The funding will help scale the development, data analysis, financing, and empowerment of landscape stewards practicing regenerative agriculture with an eye toward enabling simultaneous gains to carbon sequestration, soil health, biodiversity, water quality, farmer profitability, yield, and cultural/spiritual cohesion.

The Manager, reporting to the Vice President, Food Initiative, is responsible for shaping and managing a portfolio of existing and forthcoming grants, supporting, and developing external partnerships, and conducting targeted analysis on key topics to inform strategy and support the work of our partners.
