Foundation for Louisiana (FFL) is a social justice philanthropic intermediary founded in 2005 as the Louisiana Disaster Recovery Foundation to invest in the immediate recovery of Louisiana’s communities after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. While FFL was established in the wake of these disasters, our founders recognized the need to address the longstanding inequities that contributed to their disparate impacts and have shaped life outcomes for the most marginalized of Louisianans for centuries. Our programs grew in response to these needs, and today FFL focuses on racial justice, climate justice, criminal justice reform, economic justice, gender justice, and support for Louisiana's vibrant arts and culture.
ABOUT THE POSITION
The Fiscal Sponsorship Program Manager works closely with other staff within the fiscal sponsorship practice and Programs department to partner with mission-aligned, community-based leaders to support the implementation and expansion of the FFL fiscal sponsorship practice. Through fiscal sponsorship, FFL develops a deep knowledge of each fiscally sponsored project and creates a flexible, high functioning operational infrastructure to meet each partner’s unique needs. The Fiscal Sponsorship practice currently supports 23 projects annually with projected growth of 5 to 10 projects per year.
You have five plus years of professional experience in a community-based or nonprofit setting. Equivalent volunteer experience will be considered. You have supported coalitions or collaboratives, engaged in initiatives to reimagine, reform, or build systems, and supported an organization in meeting grant deliverables. Regardless of where you are coming from, you have a basic knowledge of racial, gender, and economic justice. You are comfortable working in complex, frequently shifting contexts and approach your work in a deeply values-centered way. You can take and give meaningful feedback, challenge and be challenged in ways that are generative and productive and approach your work with a deep commitment to learning and reflective practice. You love Louisiana and are concerned about the most pressing issues facing this state.
