The Field Advisor will work with members of the programs team in San Francisco on their program development and grantmaking goals in Australia and New Zealand.

  • Facilitating grants administration for all grants in Australia and New Zealand.
  • Assisting with grant monitoring and reporting, including: conducting mid-point phone check-ins with grantees; grantee site visits, when necessary; advising Give2Asia on the performance of the grantee; ensuring timely receipt of reports from grantees; reviewing all grantee reports to ensure they are complete and in compliance with Give2Asia standards; forwarding reports to San Francisco staff; and communicating with grantee to clarify information in reports, when necessary.
  • Assisting with other activities related to liaising with grantees or providing high quality stewardship to donors, as requested.
  • Researching and identifying new projects and partners, and conducting needs assessments or other special research, as requested.
  • Assisting donors and Asia Pacific-based representatives of donors on-site in Australia and New Zealand, as requested.
  • Providing information on Give2Asia’s fiscal sponsorship services to potential client organizations in Australia and New Zealand, as appropriate.
