Trans Justice Funding Project Administrative Coordinator Position
Deadline to Apply: November 20th
Start Date: December 7th
Based in: New York City
About TJFP: We are a community-led funding initiative founded in 2012 to support grassroots, trans justice groups run by and for trans people. We make grants annually by bringing together a panel of six trans justice activists from around the country to carefully review every application we receive. We center the leadership of trans people organizing around their experiences with racism, economic injustice, transmisogyny, ableism, immigration, incarceration, and other intersecting oppressions. Every penny we raise goes to our grantees with no restrictions and no strings attached because we truly believe in trans leadership. Before you apply, please take the time to read more about us at www.transjusticefundingproject.org.
About the Position: TJFP is a national fund packed into a tiny, two-person grassroots organization. Our mission is to trust and support trans leadership. That means we work hard to make things easy for our grantees and for our community grantmaking panel members. And that means we take on a ton of logistics.
We are looking for someone who LOVES logistics. Building a database, planning events, making spreadsheets, organizing files—these are a few of your favorite things. This job is the organizational peanut butter that holds our PB&J together! And it’s a big job: you’ll be responsible for making sure that hundreds of groups can seamlessly apply to us, that all our grantees get their checks (this year we gave out 87 grants!), and that our community grantmaking panel members from across the country make it to New York City with everything they need taken care of.
The Administrative Coordinator’s duties include:
- Managing our Salesforce database of applicants and donors
- Managing the grant application process
Providing technical support to all applicants and to the community grantmaking panel as they review applications. Gathering and organizing all financial data required to issue grant checks.
- Planning the community grantmaking panel weekend meeting
Organizing travel, lodging, and food for six panelists and our facilitators, and working expertly to address various accessibility and participation needs.
- Communications support
Answering emails and calls, helping to write our annual report, working on blog posts, articles, newsletters, and social media. Spanish-speaking a plus!
- Fundraising support
Thanking donors, helping to write appeals, working on our annual fundraising campaign, helping plan local fundraising parties.
- Community engagement
Occasional public speaking and representing TJFP at events, tabling at conferences.
- Workplanning and managing workflow
Keeping TJFP and everyone involved on track, managing projects with Asana.
The right person for the job will be:
- An excellent communicator and collaborator
- Passionate about trans justice
