Atlantic Coast Program Officer - Hive Fund for Climate and Gender Justice

Opportunity Type: Job

In this newly created position that the selected candidate will help shape, the Atlantic Coast Program Officer will manage an annual grant-making portfolio of approximately $6M focused in the Atlantic Coast region, anchored in Georgia and the Carolinas with consideration for additional future grant-making in Florida and US territories off the Atlantic Coast, dependent on fundraising. This region is home to some of the nation’s dirtiest coal-fired power plants, most intransigent utilities, and most promising opportunities for growth of renewable energy.

Working within a participatory decision-making structure, the program officer will work with co-directors, grantee partners, allied funders, and others to support an ecosystem of grantee partners. This ecosystem will work to achieve the collective goals of fighting voter suppression and increasing civic engagement in ways that curb polluting industries’ influence, strengthening economic alternatives to fossil fuels and building a healthier and more just society.

The Atlantic Coast Program Officer will support grantee partners by making multi-year general operating and healing justice and holistic security grants; helping to craft compelling stories of collective progress and impact; and connecting grantee partners with other donors and potential supporters. The ideal candidate for this role is an entrepreneurial self-starter and inclusive bridge-builder who approaches new situations with humility and faces challenges with courage and humor.

The Hive Fund’s compensation practices support staff in thriving and are part of living into the just, equitable world we are actively creating. These practices are guided by the Hive Fund’s six core values, especially transparency, equity, and healing & security. The salary range for this position is $125,000 - $165,000, commensurate with qualifications, plus access to professional development resources, and the competitive benefits package provided to all Windward Fund employees including health coverage, retirement benefits, paid sick leave, vacation and holidays.
