The Fresh Air Fund is recruiting an Attorney to oversee the organization’s legal needs.
The Fresh Air Fund is seeking an attorney with 4-8 years of experience to oversee the legal aspects of FAF’s organizational work to ensure that the Fresh Air Fund can best support the children and families it serves across New York City. The complexity, scope and diversity of FAF’s legal needs cover a wide range of legal issues including human resource management, employee matters, managing insurance policies, overseeing the enterprise risk work, reviewing contracts, bequests and planned giving management, and environmental needs affecting its real estate portfolio in the lower Hudson Valley. The position requires an attorney who has a working knowledge of the legal rules that apply to nonprofit organizations but who is also a generalist or has the capacity to develop into a skilled generalist. The ideal candidate will be customer-service oriented and able to offer legal counsel across departments and collaborate with others to devise and implement creative legal solutions in a complex nonprofit setting.
Reporting to the Executive Director and working closely with members of the Senior Staff, the Attorney will serve as a member of the Fund’s Leadership Team and will represent the FAF in all legal matters, and work with outside counsel as identified or needed, and provide counsel to the ED, staff, and Board of Directors when necessary.
Requirements / Qualifications
Send to email resumes and cover letters directly to Fatima Shama, Executive Director with Attorney in the subject line. No calls please.
The Fresh Air Fund is proud to be an equal opportunity employer, committed to inclusive hiring, and dedicated to diversity in its work and on its staff. We strongly encourage candidates of all identities, experiences, orientations and communities to apply.
