Progressive Multiplier Fund – Program Director

The Progressive Multiplier Fund (PMF) is a dynamic, start-up non-profit organization that finances small donor and fee for service projects for the progressive movement. The PMF gives grants from two funds, the Test & Innovation Fund and the Growth Fund, which have different funding criteria and priorities. Of equal importance, the PMF works to share everything it learns with all progressive organizations, equipping the whole community to grow more quickly, in part through its Center of Excellence activities.

The PMF is looking for an inaugural Program Director to join a four person leadership team. The Program Director leads PMF’s grant selection process, tracks and publicizes best practices in non-profit revenue generation, manages marketing efforts for the PMF, and manages relationships with grantees. This is the perfect position for a highly numerate fundraising or marketing specialist who would find meaning in making a broader, movement-wide impact; enjoys exposure to the most cutting edge ideas; and thrives in a data-driven decision-making environment.

The best candidate for this position will possess excellent analytical skills, have experience creating and assessing small donor and fee for service financial models, be an enthusiastic convener of best practice and respectful in communication with grantees, and act as a strategic partner with the senior team in designing the overall grantmaking strategy of the PMF. They will be capable of moving seamlessly from high level strategic planning to detailed analysis of business models and motivated by working on a wide range of progressive causes.
