Jews of Color (JoC) Philanthropy Fellow

The Jews of Color Initiative (JoCI) is a U.S.-based effort focused on building and advancing the professional, organizational, and communal field for Jews of Color. The Jews of Color Initiative formally launched in 2017 and continues to do groundbreaking work at the intersection of Jews of Color and Jewish Community. 

The JoCI focuses on grantmaking, research, and community education. It hosts the nation’s first-ever philanthropic and capacity-building fund expressly dedicated to responding to racial injustice through helping further establish, fortify and build out the field of support for Jews of Color. 


The JoCI is seeking up to three Philanthropy Fellows who are passionate about philanthropy and the Jews of Color Initiative’s mission. They will work with the Senior Program Officer and JoCI grantmaking team to implement grantmaking strategies that promote the mission, strategic objectives, and programs of the JoCI. The position is a temporary, 12-month Fellowship. We do not anticipate that Fellows will have the opportunity to remain at the JoCI at the end of the one-year Fellowship. The Fellowship is classified as a non-exempt hourly role, 40 hours per week, and reports to the Senior Program Officer.

The Philanthropy Fellows will support program development, review grant proposals and budgets, and manage assigned portfolios in JoCI’s grants program. These grants present investments in new and emerging efforts. The role will shepherd potential grantees through the grant inquiry and application process and manage all internal operations related to making and managing the grants. The Fellows will additionally be responsible for creating an RFP to address needs in the field as part of the program.


The JoCI Philanthropy Fellow roles are non-exempt, hourly positions with compensation of $31.25 an hour, 40 hours a week (equivalent to $65,000 annually) and comes with excellent benefits including health, dental, vision, 401k, commuter, and additional ancillary benefits.
