Operations Assistant (JF)

JustFund was developed in 2017 by a group of foundations and donors in order to move more resources, more quickly to grassroots efforts around the country. The portal creates a more unified, powerful support system that connects funders directly with grassroots organizations and supports them to move their resources quickly.  Because funders are able to make faster decisions when an organization has been vetted and endorsed by a trusted colleague, the portal was built to harness the expertise and knowledge of the dozens of collaborative funds and hundreds of funders and foundations around the country. By elevating the decisions and decision-making processes of these funds, we provide a way for funders to connect to thousands of smaller grassroots organizations that have already been vetted and endorsed. The portal also allows organizations to submit one single proposal and be seen by, and interact with, a host of funders.
