Now hiring a project manager

Do you want to help grassroots community groups get the funding they need to create real change in the Philadelphia region? Can you discuss the nuances of racism, classism, and community organizing in ways that are easily understood? Are you a strong project manager with impeccable attention to detail?  Are you known for inspiring and motivating volunteers? Are you a strong facilitator who loves working with groups?

Bread & Roses Community Fund believes in change, not charity. We organize donors to give at all levels to support community-based groups in building movements for racial and economic justice. Since 1977, Bread & Roses has distributed more than $10 million in grants and provided thousands of hours of leadership development and other technical assistance programming to hundreds of community-based groups fighting for better schools, good jobs, fewer prisons, quality healthcare, a safe environment, and much more.

The Giving Project is an innovative model for building community and moving money to grassroots organizing in the Philadelphia region. The Giving Project brings together a cross-class, cross-race, intergenerational group of 16 to 20 people who commit to a six month process of shared learning, giving, fundraising and grantmaking. Bread & Roses piloted the Giving Project in 2016 and we now run three Giving Projects per year. Since 2016, Giving Projects at Bread & Roses have raised over $1 million dollars.

The project manager will report to the director of programs and will be responsible for recruiting for, managing, and facilitating Giving Projects.
