The Joffe Trust is not a silent partner. They proactively seek to convene the sector they operate in, and will expect to be present as you explore this with your peers and partners. This is a helpful role, but also demands engagements for which you may not be funded under your grant.

Pros

Friendly, Builds relationships, "Gets" nonprofits and issues
