350Vermont is hiring a Lead Fundraiser to join our staff collective supporting vibrant statewide grassroots climate justice organizing. We’re looking for an experienced fundraiser who understands the power of grassroots organizing and sees fundraising as an integral part of it, whose fundraising and organizing work are rooted in a deep intersectional justice analysis. We’re looking for an outstanding written and verbal communicator who is able to connect with a wide range of people, and who has the interpersonal skills, organizational skills, and enthusiasm to collaborate effectively in an evolving shared leadership context.
The Lead Fundraiser will work closely with 350VT’s staff, board, and volunteers: leading fundraising strategy and planning; managing 350VT’s grassroots fundraising, grant applications, and relationships with donors; building relationships through being involved in some aspect of our organizing; and potentially helping with communications or managing comms strategy, depending on skills and interest.
The position is full-time (35 hours/week), paid at our staff collective/co-director rate (approx. $43K – $45K/year), with health, vision, and dental insurance, paid time off, and a professional development budget. The Lead Fundraiser can work out of our Burlington office or remotely from anywhere in VT. We encourage BIPOC, LGBTQ+, women, and people from other underrepresented communities to apply. Learn more about the role and apply by Jan. 31: https://350vermont.org/opportunities/
We have been actively diversifying our board of directors. In 2022 we are updating our mission statement and core values to better reflect our commitment to racial justice and to centering people and communities most impacted by racial injustice, the climate crisis, and other intersecting systems of oppression. We offer a "How Are Racial Justice and Climate Justice Connected?" training that we developed with BIPOC organizers, and we encourage all board members, staff members, and volunteers to participate. We collaborate with a number of BIPOC-led social justice organizations and regularly amplify their work and the work of other BIPOC-led organizations around the country. We select and develop new campaigns with a justice-centered framework, and we reflect on and evaluate how we've succeeded and how we've fallen short in centering justice, anti-racism, and intersectionality throughout our work.
