EDGE Funders Alliance (“Engaged Donors for Global Equity”) is a global community of around 400 donors, foundation officers, trustees, and philanthropic advisors who live in more than 20 countries and are passionately engaged in local, national, and international grantmaking within 120 diverse institutions that have differing priorities and strategies, but a shared belief that equity and justice are critical to furthering sustainable, global wellbeing.
EDGE works to build community among individuals and organizations that are organizing within philanthropy to deepen the sector’s understanding of the interconnected nature of the social, economic, and ecological crises threatening our common future and enables them to take action together to shift funding practice towards accountable relationships and systemic change. EDGE also builds solidarity and accompanies social movements working on systemic alternatives around the world.
EDGE is a 501(c)(3) organization with an annual budget of $1 million. It operates fully remotely with two full-time staff based in Mexico and Belgium. As a small team, EDGE has a culture that emphasizes collaboration, trust, collective care, learning, shared power, and mutual accountability — and seeks to continue to embed its values into its emerging infrastructure.

ABOUT THE POSITION
EDGE Funders Alliance is seeking a full-time Programs and Communications Coordinator to contribute to the implementation of our programs and to approaches that increase the visibility of the organization to key audiences, support learning and collaboration among network members, and advance strategic goals.
This is an ideal role for someone who is interested in developing and implementing a communications approach that is integrated into and adds value to the programmatic and organizational strategies. The Program and Communications Coordinator will be a liaison across focus areas, ensure that EDGE’s projects and communications activities are aligned, and support the team to share information in ways that meaningfully contribute to our goals.
We are open to candidates based worldwide, though the Programs and Communications Coordinator must be comfortable working remotely and with colleagues located across multiple time zones since most of our members are based in the United States and Europe. We are looking for an organized and motivated professional who shares our values and is committed to building collective power for change through funder and social movement organizing.
