NCRP promotes philanthropy that serves the public good, is responsive to people and communities with the least wealth and opportunity, and is held accountable to the highest standards of integrity and openness. We envision a fair, just and democratic society in which the common good is recognized as a high priority; where a robust public sector is empowered to protect, preserve and extend the commonly held resources and the public interest; where a vital nonprofit sector provides voice and value to those most in need; where our society has equitable systems; and where all people enjoy equal justice, full inclusion and fair treatment.
NCRP seeks a Senior Movement Engagement Associate who will help us ensure that philanthropy is accountable and responsive to the priorities of the Climate Justice Movement, especially the organizing led by indigenous, low-income, and LGBTQ communities and people of color. Given NCRP’s unique role as bridge between institutional philanthropy and social justice movements, this role could provide an early-career rising star with a unique position in which to grow and build connections in both worlds. You’ll find yourself at an organization that prioritizes intersectional racial, gender and economic justice across a variety of projects and campaigns.
This position reports to the reports to the Field Director. The salary range is $55,000 -$75,000. Benefits include contribution of 8% by employer to retirement account (no match required) and 100% paid medical and dental insurance premiums. This is a remote position.
Why you’ll want to come to work each day:
What you’ll do:
The Senior Movement Engagement Associate will lead campaigns to shift the funding, behavior and power of funders and other target organizations to serve the climate justice movement better. You’ll work as a project manager for NCRP’s Movement Investment Project, coordinating a cross-departmental team and evaluating progress. You’ll build NCRP’s relationships with leading groups in the climate justice movement and with funders who care (or should care) about this work. You’ll have the chance to organize 1:1 and facilitate presentations for national audiences.
Who You Are:
You’re passionate about climate justice, and you recognize its intersectionality with other social justice movements; you also understand that even within this diverse movement, much more must be done to achieve racial, gender and economic justice. You understand that resources and money matter, and that the climate movement can and should be better funded on its own terms. This position is fantastic for someone who already has strong relationships in the movement and can balance effective organizing chops with solid project management skills. This is also a wonderful opportunity to leverage existing relationships with climate justice movement groups with a national nonprofit. Experience with foundations or institutional philanthropy is a definite plus but is not required; you will learn a lot on the job.
NCRP is an Equal Opportunity Employer committed to a racially just, equitable and inclusive workplace.
