Staff Accountant | The Stuart Foundation

Staff Accountant
San Francisco, CA


The Stuart Foundation is a family foundation dedicated to improving life outcomes for young people through education.  We believe that public education is a public good that can energize communities, fuel the economy, and strengthen our democracy. Our work brings together and supports leaders and organizations across a wide spectrum of different backgrounds and life experiences, from immigrant parents to state system leaders, and from youth activists to superintendents of schools, to realize a vision where all young people experience a great education. These Foundation partners push the system to renew the promise of public education, work to disrupt longstanding inequities, and endeavor to make schools places that build strong relationships between educators and students, foster intellectual curiosity, and center human connection.

The Foundation has an asset base of $594 million, a current staff of 17, and makes charitable expenditures of approximately $22 million per year. While based in San Francisco, we work statewide in California as our primary focus, and also engage in specific, targeted activities in Washington State. 


The Staff Accountant works with the Controller and the Senior Accountant to carry out the responsibilities of the Foundation’s finance team. This role is primarily responsible for all record keeping and accounting procedures related to a diverse investment portfolio, as well as the day-to-day accounting activities that support the work of the Foundation. The person in this position will interact in a collaborative environment with members of the Foundation staff on a daily basis.
