Philanthropy Programs Director | North Star Fund
North Star Fund is a social justice fund that supports grassroots organizing led by communities of color building power in New York City and the Hudson Valley. We envision a world in which resources and power are equitably shared, and a future where everyone can thrive and live with dignity. Community organizers award our grants, and we mobilize people across race and class to give to organizations that center systems change. Last year, we moved over $4M in grants through our community funding committees, and millions more through our donor community and resource organizing.
We seek a Philanthropy Programs Director. We are excited to welcome to our team an experienced leader with a passion for social justice philanthropy, systems change and grassroots organizing. This is an interdisciplinary role leading North Star Fund’s philanthropic organizing and grantmaking strategy, as well as programs supporting the growth and development of grantee organizations.
This past year, North Star Fund raised a record $4M in support of our Let Us Breathe Fund, New York’s only Black activist-led participatory grantmaking fund that supports Black-led grassroots organizing. The Philanthropy Programs Director will play a key role in shaping the future of the Let Us Breathe Fund and its role in supporting a strong ecosystem of Black-led organizing in New York.
