The Rockefeller Archive Center (RAC) is a research center and repository of historical materials about foundations, philanthropy, and the many fields shaped by individual and institutional giving. Its holdings include the records of more than 80 institutions: major foundations, such as the Rockefeller and Ford Foundations and the Commonwealth Fund, smaller family funds, and many nonprofit organizations. The Archive Center’s Research and Education division (R&E) was created in 2008 to convey the significance of the collections to broader audiences, to interact more substantively with research communities, and to provide historical context for the collections. The Outreach Program Manager is a new position that takes the RAC’s public engagement program to a new level and enhances the public profile of the center through a range of outreach activities, particularly digital projects. The manager is responsible for overseeing the development of an intensified digital outreach initiative, from researching platforms to product design, execution, and initial program evaluation.
