The Women’s Foundation of the South (WFS) is the first public foundation of its kind, guided by and working for womxn and girls of color in the Southern United States (including trans womxn and gender non-conforming people). WFS is led by experienced grantmakers of color and raises funds and leverages resources for nonprofit organizations and small businesses that are operated by and serve womxn and girls of color in the American South. The Foundation is headquartered in New Orleans, Louisiana.
WFS addresses racial and gender equity at its root by shifting philanthropic resources to the womxn of color who daily demonstrate powerful leadership and problem-solving despite centuries of abuse, injustice, and exploitation. By intentionally shifting the focus in philanthropy to support womxn and girls of color, WFS is building a South in which families experience optimal health outcomes, accumulate wealth, and dictate the conditions for their success across three generations.
ABOUT THE POSITION
At the Women's Foundation of the South, we believe that “relationships are queen.” As we continue to grow, we are looking to hire a Relationships Manager to act as a steward of relationships both within WFS and with our external partners, including grantees, donors and institutional funders. The ideal candidate will be warm and hospitable, excited to communicate WFS’ unique spirit in their interactions with stakeholders, while comfortably navigating between multiple projects and systems. This person will act as the “glue” connecting two key functions of the Foundation, Programming and Advancement.
