Program Coordinator

About this Position

Napa Legal Institute is seeking a full-time program coordinator to join its team. This is a unique opportunity for a self-starter eager to protect and advance religious liberty and the missions of faith-based nonprofits. While Napa Legal is an exclusively Catholic organization, our resources are designed for not just Catholics, but for faith-based nonprofits more broadly that are similarly promoting and advancing a robust and free civil society.

By providing corporate, tax, philanthropic, and other strategic education, we equip faith-based nonprofits with the tools and resources they need so they can protect their organizations and achieve their missions. Securing religious liberty is proactive activity, as most legal battles are already won or lost outside the courtroom. We educate leaders on the steps they must take now in order to ensure their nonprofits can avoid litigation, compliance-focused attacks, and unforced errors in the public square.

Exempt Salary

Salary commensurate with experience.

40 hours per week
