Philanthropists can make a real difference in the world, but with so many worthy causes to choose from, it can be difficult to decide where to spend your money. Heck, we're getting to that time of year when charities start asking for donations, and I always struggle to choose the ones that resonate most with me, much less the ones who make the most of what I can offer.

Our featured company this week, Arabella Advisors, is no stranger to this challenge. They work with philanthropists and impact investors to maximize their dollar's mileage. Many of the companies we feature in the newsletter each week donate a portion of profits to charity – this is a great example where Arabella Advisors works with those companies to help them design their impact programs to maximize return on investment.

They're hiring for a lot of roles – see below – but if philanthropy isn't your cup of tea, check out the rest of this week's job opportunities:
