Jobs At Helmsley

The grantmakers and other professional staff members that comprise the Helmsley Charitable Trust come from an astonishing array of backgrounds and bring with them a wealth of experience and expertise from across the philanthropic and private sectors. Helmsley women and men are intelligent, creative, forward thinking, passionate about their work, and strongly committed to working productively with one another and with our grantees and other collaborators. Each was drawn to Helmsley by the same opportunity: to help build this large and still relatively new organization into a leading global charitable institution that will drive meaningful and measurable positive change in lives throughout the U.S. and around the world for many years to come.
