care of apes in captivity.
The Program Officer is an experienced field leader and grantmaker who will form part of the
Great Apes & Gibbons Program at the Arcus Foundation, with the overall responsibility of
managing a portfolio of grants, implementing the GGP strategy, and managing key relationships with partners. The

the conservation of apes in the wild and ensuring the respect and wellbeing of apes in captivity. Implementation of the Great Apes & Gibbons Program strategy includes the ability to
effectively execute the foundation’s three key roles: strategic grantmaking, listening and learning, and leading in
a manner that is consistent with the Arcus values of humility and respect. The Program Officer will also
work collaboratively with other departments on projects of mutual concern.
