Position: 
Marketing and Communications Director
Location: 
Bayside, CA

Humboldt Area Foundation (HAF) serves the residents of Humboldt, Trinity, Del Norte, and Curry counties by promoting and encouraging generosity, leadership, and inclusion to strengthen our communities. Through the generosity of local donors, HAF has awarded more than $80 million in grants and scholarships since 1972. HAF, along with its affiliate Wild Rivers Community Foundation, focuses its grantmaking and program efforts on strengthening community capacity and transforming our communities’ ability to solve problems and address the root causes of those problems. Long-standing programs of the foundation include the Native Cultures Fund and the Northern California Association of Nonprofits, and current initiatives include Building Healthy Communities—a 10-year initiative focused on improving the health and wellbeing of Del Norte County and Tribal Lands—and the Equity Alliance of the North Coast—a collaborative effort to understand and improve racial and social equity through education, dialogue, and coaching opportunities.
