About Us:
At Starbucks, we have always believed in the importance of building a great, enduring company that balances profitability with a social conscience.  We have high aspirations for the future and acquiring the right talent for our future is paramount. This company is different.  We believe in being performance driven through the lens of humanity. The Global Social Impact team engaged partners (employees) in campaigns that support Our Mission, Values, aspirations and major company initiatives, including our commitments to hiring 25,000 Veterans and Military Spouses by 2025 and engaging every store in Community Service by 2020. In addition, this team supports the strategy and philanthropic giving of the Starbucks Foundation, which was created in 1997 as part of our promise to strengthen the communities in which we operate and source from.
As a manager on the Global Social Impact team, you will serve as the subject matter expert on our philanthropic giving – overseeing grant management processes, reporting requirements and financial stewardship of grantees, establishing and managing accurate, timely and complete records ensuring proper fiscal and impact reporting, and building and maintaining relationships with a sub-set of critical grantees and donor advised funds. In addition, the Global Social Impact manager will work cross-functionally to drive close coordination across Foundation portfolio managers, will maintain a 1 year campaign and storytelling calendar for the Foundation’s investments, will prepare presentations for executives as it relates to the Foundation and the team’s global portfolio, and will manage a subset of global portfolio processes and systems.
