Democracy Fund champions leaders and organizations who defend democracy and challenge our political system to be more open, just, resilient, and trustworthy. We believe that experimentation, learning, and adaptation are key to the health and resilience of any system, whether it is our organization or the American political system. As grantmakers, we focus on listening and being of service to our grantees, who are visionaries and our collaborators, and on ways we can more deeply embed diversity, equity, and inclusion as values central to the success of our work and mission.

The Philanthropic Partnerships team works to bring new funders, resources, and leadership to the democracy field. Using Democracy Fund’s expertise, rigor, and systems approach, the team helps donors strategically invest in innovative and successful nonprofits working to strengthen our democracy. We are not fundraising for ourselves but providing a unique service to the fields in which we work. This strategy is a major element of Democracy Fund’s strategic vision.

Democracy Fund is seeking someone who loves working in a fast-paced, mission-driven, entrepreneurial environment. The partnerships coordinator will play a key role in supporting the emerging strategy. Experience in fundraising and development is a plus but not required.

The ideal candidate is a careful planner and adept connector with an eye for detail who successfully meets deadlines and is ready to support a high-performing team through their next phase of growth. This role is a hub for work happening across the team and helps other internal teams connect to and collaborate with Philanthropic Partnerships.
