About Fòs Feminista
Fòs Feminista is an intersectional feminist organization centered around the sexual and reproductive rights and needs of women, girls, and gender-diverse people. Led and governed by the Global South, Fòs Feminista works as an alliance of organizations in 40+ countries worldwide to advance sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice (SRHRJ). Fòs Feminista is both the connective tissue that links these diverse partners in an alliance and an active participant in the broader ecosystem of actors working on sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice. Fòs Feminista orchestrates transnational and transregional action by connecting partners throughout the SRHRJ ecosystem, amplifying innovative partner-led solutions to SRHRJ issues, and catalyzing funding and political will for an intersectional feminist agenda on SRHRJ.
We recognize that the ability of women, girls, and gender-diverse people to make free and informed choices about their sexual and reproductive lives, including to access safe and legal abortion, is central to their life plans and to achieving gender and reproductive justice. Together with partners in the alliance, we provide access to sexual and reproductive health care and services, including contraception, abortion, and care for survivors of gender-based violence, and we reach young people with comprehensive sexuality education. We are at the forefront of advocating for sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) from an intersectional lens in national, regional, and global spaces, coordinating with our partners to ensure that diverse experiences, priorities, and voices of the Global South are represented in these spaces. We strengthen intersectional feminist movements and organizations by creating and holding space for partners to participate in an international community built on feminist values of sharing power, diversity, mutual learning, and solidarity, and to access resources to strengthen their work.
As Fòs Feminista expands our international feminist alliance, the Senior Philanthropy Officer will work collaboratively with a range of staff and consultants to build and implement strategies for deepening engagement with Fòs Feminista’s institutional donors and prospects and scaling up the resourcing for our growing number of partner organizations worldwide.
As a member of the Foundations, Governments and Major Gifts Unit, the Senior Philanthropy Officer will be responsible for the strategic management of our existing institutional donor relationships, in addition to tracking funding opportunities and strategically engaging in spaces to position Fòs Feminista with potential progressive governments and foundations. The Senior Philanthropy Officer will facilitate the cultivation of donors in a way that both grows revenue and fosters authentic connection to the work of our partner organizations and the women, girls, and gender-diverse people they reach. In alignment with Fòs Feminista’s deepening commitment to feminist philanthropy, the Senior Philanthropy Officer will infuse an intersectional feminist perspective into this critical fundraising work.
This very hands-on position requires an implementer with excellent interpersonal, writing, and editing skills, and attention to detail. The successful candidate will be able to multi-task, meet deadlines, build strong relationships, and have a collaborative and flexible work style to coordinate with multiple internal teams and partners.
This is an exciting opportunity to learn from and contribute to a dynamic, diverse, and growing global feminist organization that spans multiple generations, contexts, and identities and works collaboratively to address practical reproductive health needs while strengthening and linking movement-led efforts for sexual and reproductive rights and justice.
The Senior Philanthropy Officer reports to the Philanthropy Lead for Foundations, Governments, and Major Gifts. This role may oversee consultants and interns as needed.
