Program Associate, Emerging LGBTQ Leaders of Color Fund

About Borealis Philanthropy

From Black-led movement-building, to queer and trans liberation, to disability justice and inclusion, community organizers are working every day to bring about transformational change. Borealis Philanthropy exists to listen to, invest in, and support them. Our staff of experts come from the communities we serve, and bring their lived experiences, values, and visions to the work of supporting community-driven change through grantee and funder collaboration.

As a philanthropic intermediary, Borealis Philanthropy builds bridges between funders and organizers by creating opportunities for impact-driven investments. We team with funders to conceive, develop, and implement grantmaking initiatives that resource the many innovative organizations within each of our respective grantmaking funds. In partnering with philanthropy, we remove barriers to funding for grassroots organizations and invest in intersectional movements building a future that serves all of us.

About the Emerging LGBTQ Leaders of Color Fund

The Emerging LGBTQ Leaders of Color Fund (ELLC Fund) is a donor collaborative that supports the bridging role that young LGBTQ leaders of color play to support movements in becoming more connected, inclusive, and thus more powerful. The ELLC Fund invests in leaders and organizations who understand that social justice issues do not exist in isolation from each other and thus build community power to address the intersections of harm and inequity.


The Program Associate supports programming, administration, grantmaking, and other operational activities for Borealis Philanthropy’s visionary funds. In addition, the Program Associate participates in cultivating relationships, corresponding to and fielding inquiries, conducting research on topics for proposals, and identifying potential donors/grantees, etc.

With clearly defined guidance and the direction of a program officer, the Associate solves routine problems and maintains processes and procedures to ensure effective and efficient operation of programs and fund-related projects.
