Communications and Events Associate

The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation is an organization in transformation. Six years ago, the Foundation set a course to achieve our vision of a more equitable New Jersey. 


Over the last three years, we have accelerated this commitment and further refined our vision and strategic direction to center racial equity and justice, where people of all races and communities have equitable access to opportunities and can thrive and achieve their full potential. We have a long history of resourcing efforts to promote the well-being of people across New Jersey. In our grantmaking, we prioritize networks, movements, organizations, and leaders closest to the harms of and solutions to inequity and injustice, focusing on those historically excluded from investment and opportunity. In doing so, we are moving critical resources to changemakers, communities, and movements in ways that enable them to accelerate, deepen, and advance their work on their own terms.  Our board and staff are energized by our new resourcing strategies that address the root causes–and repair–of structural racism and inequity in New Jersey and that center communities of color. 


  • In 2021, we launched the first round of Imagine a New Way grants to organizations advocating for just systems and tackling barriers to equity in New Jersey. 


  • In January 2022, we introduced our inaugural Momentum Fund cohort—ten organizations selected by a panel of community leaders employing diverse strategies to address root causes of structural racism across the state.  


  • In January 2023, we launched new Program Priorities that will guide the majority of our funding decisions going forward.  For more information on Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, please visit the organization’s website. The Strategic Direction and President’s Messages include additional details about the Foundation’s transformation.



The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation is looking for a dynamic and detail-oriented individual to join our team as the Communications and Events Associate, reporting to the Director of Communications. In this role, the individual will play a critical role in amplifying our mission, engaging with our grantees, and managing our various communications channels and events. This is a great opportunity for someone passionate about philanthropy and looking to make a positive impact in the community. A successful Communications and Events Associate will work collaboratively with Foundation team members and manage multiple projects at the same time. 


The Associate will be joining the Foundation at an exciting moment in our transformation as we reimagine both what we fund and how we engage. This is a “build moment” for the Foundation. We are working to transform our grantmaking, partnerships, and internal operations to center racial equity and justice and ensure that these values and capabilities are central to all that we are and all that we do.
